Good traffic app with room for improvement

I use this app almost daily for planning a variety of commutes off the mountain from Big Bear and find the information provided to be reasonably accurate. It's especially handy when you need to know if you will encounter chain control stations before you start out on your mountain journey through stormy weather. I really appreciate no ads! For improvements, the "Warning" users have to click when the app opens is an unnecessary annoyance and should be removed - put it in a terms of use agreement to make your lawyers and app users happy. I would also like the app to be able to store my customized map regions rather than make me use screen gestures to draw the map zoom level every time I load the app to see my entire commute through multiple counties - It's not really helpful to select a county and still have to resize the screen. Let me create the Zoom level in a particular map location and then save that view in a memory with a custom name as is common in weather map apps. Speaking of weather, probably asking way too much, but I've thought many times that a weather radar layer would be handy on this traffic map app. Maybe you could team up with the ACME team at "My Radar".

Great app but crashing today!

I use this app to navigate all traffic but as of today, it crashes on opening. No updates seen. I hope it gets fixed soon. With all option layers on, this is the most comprehensive app I have found. I wish the fire layer were still active.

Helpful app, but seems to be lacking an important feature…

This is a great app for checking road conditions in your area or along rural routes when traveling on vacation. It even allows you to view traffic camera views along routes, which is very neat! However there seems to be a very important feature that this app could use and that is having customer service forms integrated into the app. This can already be accessed via web browser but can be difficult to use at a given moment on the road. With that being said, a more user-friendly hazard-reporting interface inside this app will help those traveling the vast road system quickly report maintenance problems etc. and help keep CAs roads clean and functional!
