The SDDOT 511 mobile application provides real-time access to traveler information supplied by the South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT). Maps depict current roadway conditions and the latest incident, construction, and restriction information on all Interstate, U.S., and State Routes. Forecasted road condition threats for the upcoming 24 hours are described in the road segment reports, and where there are, such threats may be viewed on the map. The maps also indicate the location of roadside cameras and allow the user to view camera images. As the user moves through the highway network, the app keeps track of the user’s location on the map. SDDOT also maintains a Twitter feed accessible through the 511 mobile application's main menu. Finally, the mobile application links surrounding states' mobile applications and mobile websites.

Ratings and Reviews
Overall not too bad but surrounding states have much better apps that are easier to use. This app has no easy way to see a legend at the same time you are looking at the road conditions. So if you don’t happen to know that a pink road with black dotted line means “whatever” you are out of luck. You need to go through several menus to get to actual road info in text format. This app could easily be improved dramatically with just a few tweaks. Our neighbors in Minnesota give a good example of an easy to use 511 app.
Needs a bit of work.
Need to update, in dark mode the legend shows icons, but you cannot view the words.
Would be nice if you could see the legend and map at the same time.
I had such high hopes
While the map is similar to the website and the tools are all there, the data is OLD. The cameras show the correct time, but the pictures are from a night time view when it's 2pm. If I can't trust the data, it's useless. It's extremely clumsy on a phone as well. I also have the same complaint about the map: no key to tell you what the various colors are. Worse, if you zoom in to look at an area, it makes it smaller and smaller, not bigger.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
