Most accurate traffic and road conditions app 4/5
Please, update to include the new iPhone XS Max screen to properly display app controls.
Ok but 3/5
Not as useful as the old San Diego real time traffic report which was excellent. This version actually manages to give less information than the RTTR which you could zoom into a single freeway and get a list of actual freeway speeds. This gives you 4 colors instead and doesn’t tell what they mean. You have to guess what red means and exactly where the threshold between red and orange might lie likewise or age to green. Wow! high resolution: 3 bands and some other 4th unknown one. Versus mph list, no contest.
However it is a pretty map, albeit lacking in info vs the old one, so if they add some definition of the colors without me having to google for them plus bring back the old speed list view as an overlay somehow then I’ll give it a five.
Poor substitute for San Diego Real Time Traffic map! 1/5
The SDRTT map gives/gave you the colors, but also the real time data from the freeway sensors. Red is slow - so do you want the 10 mph slow route or the 2 mph slow route? You'll never know which is which with this app. This has many details, like each ramp and transition, but if it's backed up you don't have to zoom to the ramp to know it's clogged.
The SDRTT map had/has a link to the current CHP activity in chronological order, so you could easily see what events were affecting your drive now without having to click on all of the events.
Don't make the state maps like Google, make them like the SDRTT map! Give us more info, not less!
Good app 5/5
Good app. Just one suggestion. I want to pinch/zoom on the cam pictures.

Only works on WiFi
Good traffic app with room for improvement 4/5
Used to be fast 2/5
This app is very informative. Unfortunately once they updated to add waze markers (pretty useless addition), the app is soooo slow to pan around. It is jerky and does this on all my devices. I tried deleting and reinstalling too. Not sure what happened
Edit: is there any update here? Almost two months of an unusable app. Still seems like all graphic acceleration is missing and I am now running an iPhone 8 with ios11
Great App for Travel! 4/5
By Tomas P
Downloaded the app a while ago prior to traveling to Mammoth Lakes and what a great help. Use it daily while driving.
Is there anyway the Locations can be EXTENDED to cover other parts of America?
Just curious it would be great to have fire, road work / closures etc ...
V2.1 addresses the performance issues 4/5
New fire layer useless 3/5
By AGM USA
Thanks a bunch, without perimeters the fire layer is completely useless. Great moment to make the change.
if the map wasn’t so glitchy i would give it a five. good information, just need to fix the map.
Very informative 5/5
A very good app for planning travel. Has saved me a lot of time and hassle avoiding traffic.
Fast, accurate and no B.S. Well done and easy to use.
Great app for traffic 5/5
Love the way you can see the times on the Caltrans boards and also the up to date info on traffic incidents
Lose the nag screen please 3/5
Useful app, but annoying pop-up reminding me to close the app when operating a vehicle is like saying don't run with scissors.
Chain Controls work now 5/5
Now that chain controls work, this is my go-to app to see what's happening on CA roads. Best part is being able to click on incidents and see details of what's going on. Coolest part is being able to see what's displayed on all the freeway message signs.
Cameras are not live 3/5
Only just downloaded it, but it doesn't seem that there is any motion with the cameras. Just still pictures. Otherwise good for chain control and stoppages, etc.
Useful app - easier to use than website 4/5
Nice, easy to use app to find road closures and such, especially with all of the floods, mudslides, etc. recently.
Not the most feature-filled app but certainly an app that has a slot in my "travel and commute" folder.
Dump the google maps... 2/5
Pretty good information but using the lousy google implementation when there are maps built in is not ok.
A great thing to have 4/5
A very handy map to have to check road conditions once you grok some of the CHP terms. Especially when when Apple maps and Google maps don't agree on what's open.
Biggest criticism are the red dots with a line in them that offer no explanation as to what they are there for. Please make them clickable as well.
Not as bad as their website 5/5
The quick map data is great for commuters, but the website is terrible on mobile. This app is less terrible.
happy truck driver 5/5
Thank you caltrans for the app, this is my first year as an otr driver, 1st time chaining, 1st year going to other states. This app has helped me in my trips recently. Every state should have an app like this, makes it so much easier.
However it is missing the conversion of text messages from radio broadcasts.
Excellent job spread out the word about the app! seems nobody knows about it ?.?
Version 1.6.1 5/5
By Taylor Berard
Great app chain controls working in this version.
Chain control! 3/5
By garden tomatoes
Yes, needs chain control information. Until then, will use on-line version.
If Only It Worked! 1/5
By Fire Escape
This would be a really cool app if only it worked. I have tried loading it on both mine and my wife's iPhone 6's and everything functions except the chain control display? That is like the primary reason I want to use it. I would love some feedback if and when it starts working with iPhone 6.
Great app (except) 5/5
No chain control symbols? Once this bug is fixed, it will be perfect.
Chain control symbols not displaying 3/5
The chain control symbols show up on the website but they don't show up in the iPhone app.
Looks promising 5/5
If this is updated quickly then it will be extremely useful because I drive for a living. It has a single place to go for traffic, accidents, closures, etc. I especially like being able to click on the cameras for live shots. Thanks, CalTrans. I'm sending a link to everyone I know.
