Nice looking app, but no saved trips

Used to use this for checking congestion and incidents for commuting. I find without having a “saved trip” it’s not useful to me anymore. Easier to use Waze or Maps.
Hopefully that feature returns as I find no need to have an app when you have to go to the website for saved trip feature.

Hi Latenightdriver,

We have released an update to Live Traffic NSW that includes the ability to receive notifications about incidents affecting your saved trips. You can also save areas of interest and receive notifications of incidents affecting your saved areas, and follow individual incidents to receive notifications when they change or end.

If you have any feedback about these features please feel free to email us:

Pretty useless

Once I deleted this up from my phone because of the bugs and the unreliable information, but after a year I thought I’ll give it another chance.
I am using it on the latest Iphone and it is still as bad as it was... I can get used to the hard to navigate pages and the unexpected jumps when viewing maps, I can also manage the very frequent crashes, but the traffic information is really unreliable.. some things get updated and some don’t.. not very useful when planning a few hundred kms trip. I am back using google maps.

Lost features break usefulness

I used to use this app a lot for trip planning. CANT do that now as the feature has been removed. Unfortunately that now makes the app very limited in its usefulness.

If they brought back the trip planner that would be great, otherwise Maps app gives you nearly the same information.

Hi APooley,

Thank you for writing in, Trip Planner will be back in the application shortly - in the interim please plan your journey on

In addition to trip planner, we're releasing more features in 2021 to help keep you aware of your surrounds.

Please contact us on if you would like to discuss further.

Thank you
