The Florida 511 (FL511) Advanced Traveler Information System (ATIS) is the state’s official source for real-time traffic and travel information. The FL511 Mobile App provides directions to any destination with travel times and alternate routes on most roadways throughout the state. Users can also get information on crashes, congestion, construction and closures on Florida’s interstates, toll roads, and other major roadways. New to the FL511 Mobile App is destination-based routing and the ability to speak your requests to the app. For destination-based routing, users enter their destination and are provided multiple routes with travel times based on current traffic conditions. While in drive mode, users receive detailed alerts for incidents occurring along their route. When requesting information using voice, users of the app can now request a city, county, or roadway and the app will play back all associated events within specific radius. Travel smart with the FL511 Mobile App to Connect. Know. Go.
Minor bug fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
Not usable for truckers.
They charged from a call to 511 to having to use a app or computer. Truckers can-not by law use there cell phones. They can use hands free Headset but phone must be out of drivers view. Calling and getting traffic up dates were easy a very useful for truckers. But now this system is no better then a mounted GPS. Go back or add the call up service and help truckers stay safe. Iv even seen drivers of car holding the phone and trying to get updates on traffic. Now I know some will say just mount the phone so a trucker can keep a eye on the traffic ahead. Do you want a truck weighing 40 tons doing 70mph coming up on you while the driver is looking at his phone to check traffic. And trucks are much more noisy then cars. The voice option on the app is again useless in a big truck. Just offer both options. Phone or app. Keep the highways safe.
FL 511 vs VA 511
FL 511 uses still pics so info is not in real time and is a bit off. In Virginia, there 511 is a live feed so whatever is written could be a few minutes off. You need only to tap the live feed to verify which is sooo good as things can happen in seconds. This feature has saved me on so many occasions. So in Florida I can only rely on Waze. FL 511 is currently lagging and inferior without the live feed for sure. The info presented can be incorrect because it’s minutes behind what is actually happening.
Good App, One Complaint
The application works very well and has a multitude of features. This app is great to check on any congestion and/or accidents before traveling.
My only complaint is their address system. For whatever reason, the majority of the places I visit are considered to have an “invalid address” this is solved by putting a more general address, but is still an inconvenience.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your feedback. We have made updates to our mapping system since March, please try using the app again. Thanks!
