The Addinsight app uses the Bluetooth beacon network to receive delay information at locations approaching the incidents.
The map highlights sections of road that are currently experiencing delays higher than normal (excess delay). This allows commuters to quickly see if their route to work is running normally. The user can tap on any of the highlighted road segments to see the current extra delay and travel time.
Interacting with a mobile phone while driving is illegal, so this information is only useful before you start your trip or if you have a passenger that can check it for you.
That is why Addinsight has introduced spoken alerts, allowing motorists to keep their eyes on the road. The spoken alerts will play through your phone’s loud speaker or via your car entertainment system if you are paired via Bluetooth. You must have Bluetooth turned on for the spoken alerts to work.
You will only receive spoken alerts that are relevant to your current direction of travel, but in some instances you may receive messages relating to delays on an intersecting road that may only be relevant if you are turning left or right.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Why is this not fixed yet for iPhones?
From your app FAQ
“ A common issue for iPhone users is that they have “Alert via Handsfree” turned on. This is in the app settings menu. If you are not connected to a car stereo and you have this setting turned on, the audio alerts come through the phone's ear piece instead of the phone's loud speaker.”
This has been a known issue for quite some time now. Can you not fix it? (It will get you an extra star!) I drive multiple vehicles each day and my hands free is always turned on for work vehicles but my own car’s radio does not have hands free (Yes, I need a new car too LOL).
Arrows wrong direction
On more than one occasion, delays on the south eastern freeway are shown with the delay arrow pointing in the wrong direction. Right now there is an incident affecting traffic leaving Adelaide towards the hills, yet the directional arrows are pointing to the city!
I turned on the navigation mode so it would know where I was and any delays. Didn’t acknowledge where we were even with location services and cellular data turned on. Tried to use the support button just forced the app shut. Tried going to the website and still could not find any support.
