Ratings and Reviews
I check the roads every time i want to leave. Today at 11:15 am it told me the roads were normal.... guess what they were icy as hell. I looked at the update time and it was between 3 am and 6 am. That’s dangerous that you dont constantly update road conditions. It snowed this morning and it wasn’t taken into consideration. I depend on knowing current road conditions to safely travel. In the past i have noticed this same problem: road conditions are not current! Hwy 6 north from deer river still hasnt been updated since 3 am this morning it is 3:03 pm now and the road is slick! Im supposed to be able to depend on this app for my safety.
LOVE this app!!!
If you’re dealing w/the April blizzard today this app might save you! You can see what the roads are like via traffic cams along your route, it tells you everything that’s happening on roads from crashes, closures, speeds, etc as it’s happening. I love that the app will ‘talk’ tell you what’s happening so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road. Very simple and easy to use app. Great design, smartly done. Thank you!!
Needs a lot of work
This app is worthless if you’re trying to look at and find out road conditions. Partially covered...with what? Visibility of roads is not at all taken into consideration. Very vague and more times than not, very inaccurate. The road pictures are often not updated, they simply change the date and time- very misleading to travelers and it is dangerous. Lots of work needs to be done to make this app useful and safe to use. I’m very disappointed.
