Totally useless 1/5
Another app to download and find out it is totally useless. It doesn't even show properly the Florida counties by region. Delete.

Does Not Work 1/5
By patrick castleberry
This app is useless.
Worthless app 1/5
Being in the medical profession and On call, I used this app frequently before this version. This version is absolutely worthless and is pure junk. I have sat for over an hour in traffic from deadly accidents on 75 and the app shows "no incidents reported"...Unbelievable.
I agree with the other reviewers, this app is useless. Bring back the older version, please!!!
511 app doesn't work anymore 1/5
Sat in traffic today beside a six-car pile-up for hours. App registered NOTHING, not my location, much less the accident I could plainly see from my car. What happened? 511 used to be a very useful app.
511 Now worthless 1/5
One star is too much to give the current version
The old one was decent- either fix the program or fire the programmers
Too complicated 1/5
The old version of this app was so simple, simple enough to use while driving. Now it has been made WAAAYYYY too complicated. Not easy to navigate and the most important part, traffic, I cannot find where to get it.
511 Florida 1/5
By Irving d
Likely the worst transition ever from its predecessor. Absolutely nothing of redeeming value.
Strange zooming windows. Might as well just go to the website. The integrated map is basically a feed from web. I'd rather go to the state traffic site.
We Need Real Help 1/5
The previous app was a good tool that could be used to assist a driver without complication. It was audible and instant within 5 minutes of an incident. I could avoid precious minutes needed to get from home to work or visa versa. The current app is frustrating first because I can't get any audio out of it, therefore I must look at it on my way to I-95 - not good. Secondly, it is not user friendly or informative. The digital signage on the highway notified me of a crash long before my silent notice was received. Please revise this current version. Maybe try to set it up yourself and use it on an unknown route. Relying on gut instint is not helpful and unfortunately this is the only app in my area.
Horribly confusing and hard to navigate. Constantly locks up or crashes altogether. Older version was 100x better.
By F D W
This app is all but useless. Very difficult to use when there is any incident information, which is rarely. There was an accident on I-95 the other day with all lanes blocked for quit awhile and this app said all was clear. I don't need another navigation app. Just list the incidents like the previous app did. As a matter of fact, just delete this app and bring the previous one back. The previous one was much, much better.
By Don Bryant
Can anyone please provide ONE instance where this app does anything? The old app was perfect. This new one makes everything more difficult and dangerous.
Extremely confusing 1/5
I used the other 511 app for traffic updates, this version does not get the job done.I tried my best to give it a chance, created an account, saved routes and destinations. It simply doesn't work. If I'm using it wrong please provide some sort of instructions.
This app is not user friendly. Worthless.
Horrible. Why did they change the version. The old one was one click easy. I cannot even navigate through this to make sense.
Bring back the traffic list default 2/5
This is too much. I just want to press the icon and have it open up to the incident list. Maybe I am missing something but I have to jump through too many hoops for this to work now. May as well use Google Maps which is also complicated.
Not User Friendly 1/5
If you are commuting within a specific area it may be ok,otherwise it's useless, it creates distracted driving.
Florida FDOT FL FDOT IS A USELES APP 1/5
Imagine your 17 year old daughter or 75 year old grandmother is planning to drive into or through a city in Florida....
HOW...do they know where the PLANNED road construction, PLANNED Construction slowdowns, PLANNED ROAD CLOSURES...are
The FDOT has this info in a TEXT format...
but if grandma doesn't know where the intersection of Maple Ave a first street is... the info is USELESS... as is most of the help one gets from the FDOT...and this app can only be as good as the double secret data that the FDOT has decided to NOT SHARE...
USELESS APP... BECAUSE OF USELESS GOVERNMENT
IPad incompatible. 1/5
By Dusty Roadz
Will not work on iPads 😳
This app is a big blob. It doesn't even open for me. Not helpful at all. Please go back to the way it used to be.
No reason to have this app. Nothing helpful whatsoever. I don't know how they can call it an upgrade. It went from an okay app to a dud. Go back to the drawing board folks. Like the other guy, I'd give it zero stars if I could.
Major leap backwards 1/5
It's nearly impossible to just get traffic information like the old FL 511 used to show.
Great App! 5/5
By Gator news
The new 511 app is awesome! I love the new features including the alternate routes and easy access to the mobile website!
Forget this app 1/5
As a local commuter from palm beach co. to Dade co. this app is worthless to me. Previous reviews have said it well enough. Please bring back the old 511 Florida so I'll know where the traffic pinch points are!
Extremely bad 1/5
I would give no stars but I can’t do that. This new app is a piece of CRAP. The old app had a clear purpose: to check for traffic alerts around a 5 mile radius from my location, or the four different routes I had set up in the FL511 website, so then I could decide if I should take the 95 or the Turnpike. Those traffic alerts were the first thing I would see when I opened the app, not a choice of pull down menus, not a tab with urgent alerts that shows me that a county that is 250 miles from my location has a closed road. Now I have to press at least 3 times to get to traffic alerts. The big shot at the FDOT who approved this app did not care to ask regular drivers how they use it. If I wanted driving directions, I already have Waze, Google Maps, etc. I don’t need another app to give me driving directions.
If you were using this app to check for traffic alerts, you’ll be disappointed with this new version.
Also be aware that your routes and alerts on the old site were not moved to the new updated website. The app did not recognize my e-mail, (I’m almost sure the old site worked with a username). I tried to login from a PC and it still did not work so I had to register a new profile and create the routes and alerts from scratch.
Need to do a little better to much stuff on the home page need to make it more like a app and to help first responders
