Not as in depth as the 511 map website

Doesn't show local road closures or most incidents that appear on the website itself.

The route options are badly programmed

Tried setting up a route that I normally travel to the city. Whatever picks the roads used is terrible, even using multiple waypoints to try to force the route to follow the path. An absurd combination of surface streets, reversals on parkways and unnecessary route changes make it impossible to force the route to follow any reasonable path. The rest of the features can be found online, so there's not much point in getting the app.

Mostly useless

It’s been a year and these idiots at NYDOT can’t even get the cameras working… but let’s just keep spending tax dollars and a football stadium for a football them that can’t get past the play-offs.
