Q-Ranka is typically launched prior to starting your journey. The app then continually monitors the movement of your vehicle whilst in the boundaries of major motorway routes. If safe to do so, it could also be launched once you've stopped in stationary traffic
When your journey progress is halted for more than 60 seconds, Q-Ranka begins mapping your position against other vehicles (running the app) in the same stationary queue. Once ranked, your position from the lead ‘Q-Ranked’ vehicle is displayed together with your distance from it. Switching to Map View will show your position on the motorway. Scrolling this map will give a visual reference of all Q-Ranked vehicles, both in front and behind you.
Your Q-Rank position will decrease when the lead vehicle (Q-Ranked #1) starts moving for more than 60 seconds. Their lead status will then fall back to the next queuing vehicle running the app. This real-time data also updates your distance from this new lead vehicle.
If it’s safe to do so, or if a passenger in the vehicle is operating the app, then you have the option to supply open messages to fellow queuing drivers. This may be useful if you’re a lead vehicle and can report what’s causing the queue to the drivers behind you.
Once you become vehicle #1 in the queue and then starts moving, Q-Ranka will return to monitoring your journey progress until it’s stopped again.
