Minnesota 511 app reviews

  • Love this! 5/5

    By ash302
    I absolutely love this app hasn’t let me down yet! Only problem I’ve noticed it the camera by silver lake on highway 7 still isn’t working and hasn’t been for quite some time now.
  • LOVE this app!!! 5/5

    By gingerlee44
    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!!
  • Wishing for weight restrictions 3/5

    By BennyBigRig
    I use this app all the time as a truck driver. I wish they had an option for road weight restrictions on non major roads(county roads) so I could plan my routes accordingly.
  • Needs Help 2/5

    By Ode07
    The lack of updating is extremely annoying. I am currently stranded and waiting for roads to open. Nothing has been updated since 530 am.
  • Great! 5/5

    By HoBo cycling
    I find this app is great at giving up to date road info. Almost never any issues using it. The road cameras are great and those plow cameras a nice bonus. Keep up the good work and please send help to the Wisconsin 511 app developers they can really use it. Thanks.
  • Don’t put a bet on it 2/5

    By halapadoris
    Looked at it early am up by Minneapolis said partially covered everywhere, checked later in am and said all roads were seasonal I got up here and every road is covered in ice who updates the road conditions because they need to find a new profession
  • Terrible app 1/5

    By ghfrasevmppyuinf
    Updates are ridiculously old. Family members traveling in bad weather and can’t get up to date reports. Some reports are almost 24 hours old in bad weather.
  • Needs road updates 1/5

    By trucker426
    They need to keep the road conditions more up to date
  • Needs a lot of work 1/5

    By EBlank.
    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.
  • Winter Road layer mysteriously disappears 1/5

    By nolojoro67
    When the roads are potentially icy or snow covered, the Winter road layer often just mysteriously disappears. Super helpful.
  • Cameras never work 1/5

    By Chicknladee
    Just when you need to see an area the camera view doesnt work. And i’m not talking 1 camera, all but a couple here and there ( so it isnt a complete failure)
  • Updates 1/5

    By Dave0hboyz
    Updates from 2/3 hours ago is not a update, that’s called history. The site is so trying to be something that it’s not; informative. Let’s add more symbols colors and options and throw in a few abstract non related menu items. Just the facts would be helpful.
  • Not impressed 1/5

    By Starz56636
    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.
  • Worthless. The web site traffic was better. 1/5

    By gman1868
    At least the MNDOT traffic web site had the color coded roads to indicate the traffic level. Google maps does it much better. I just want the web page back. Simple and easy to use.
  • Used to work 1/5

    By Imadogmom23
    What’s up with this app??? Winter driving conditions are not working and even regular road conditions aren’t all loading. Winter is the most important information to have. Fix it please.
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By besafemba
    I need winter driving/ road condition information This app not working. Very disappointing. Nothing shows on the map and the search function is also broken. The radio warns of hazardous travel conditions so I was hoping to find out the conditions of highway US-10 before I set out with my elderly father. North Dakota’s website is working perfectly.
  • Does nothing 1/5

    By Maxdiedrich
    If you want to look at a map of Minnesota this app has it. No road conditions shown.
  • Feature Suggestion 4/5

    By M4tt3y
    To add more relevance to the app, may I suggest a tab for construction projects from MnDOT? Otherwise, the app is functionally okay.
  • More timely updates 1/5

    By Bradt42
    What’s the use of having a road conditions app if they don’t updated the conditions. Pretty much useless
  • Won’t work 2/5

    By marconiusrex
    Won’t show road conditions on the map!! What happened?! It used to work. The Iowa one I also use quite often works just fine! 🙄🤔
  • Great app! 5/5

    By Wjaykay
    This app is a great help at giving general road conditions.
  • Refreshing 3/5

    By Honeybearymca
    The app has some great features. However, it doesn't get refreshed for long periods of time.
  • Layers disappear 2/5

    By vleighp
    I would like to be able to use this app for winter road conditions however, most of the time that layer disappears. I have to delete the app and reinstall but even then, the layer may not be there. Very frustrating!
  • Stupid 1/5

    By Zzzfedhufcrjsehouvwhb
    Doesn't even have an option for winter driving! This is Minnesota, winter driving is the most important!!!!!
  • Don't bother!!! 1/5

    By slim891202
    I thought that this would help tell me road conditions quickly. What a joke. The interstate is closed and the app says that it's open. It's almost never updated. If I could I'd give it negative stars!
  • Sure would be nice if it worked... 1/5

    By Capn.Dmorg
    This app only gives traffic info, which you can just as easily get from your normal maps app. Nothing else works. Road conditions worked for a couple minutes before the option disappeared completely. Force quit doesn't restore anything, neither does reinstalling the app. MnDot won't want to hear this, but you're better off using your browser while you drive than downloading this app.
  • Great App, recent issues 3/5

    By Merlin713
    I love this app. I use it daily. Today, 11-18-16, marks the beginning of the heavy use for the winter season. I downloaded the update on 11-10 and I cannot get the traffic cameras to appear on the map. I deleted and re downloaded and had the cameras until I had to close to app to do something else. Upon opening, no cameras. Tried all the options and nothing worked. Tried deleting and downloading again and I still don't have cameras. Please fix this issue!
  • Terrible app 4/5

    By AntiqueBass
    The developers decided, I surmise, to "improve" this app. Well, it is NOT an improvement. I can't get any information about the roads I actually travel on. Totally useless. I suppose I will just have to go on the road and find out the old fashioned way just exactly what the road conditions are. Thanks Minnesota - always thinking of us, I can tell. Revised: deleted and re-DLd this app, now it works great, will update review to 4 stars.
  • Very helpful app 5/5

    By mb340
    This app is great if you are a commuter in the Twin Cities. It gives current accurate traffic details in an easy to use format. I use this app every day and I recommend it.
  • A necessity for road construction season 4/5

    By Buciumeana
    I use the app for road closings, which are hemming us in on all sides this year. I noticed at least one thing missing (the Dale St ramp closure in the Hwy 36 project isn't shown), but there's also a link to the project page on the MnDOT website where you can get details.
  • Handy but not very accurate 3/5

    By Cunamara
    This app can be useful but it is not very accurate in showing congestion levels. I find road depicted as open flowing are often actually stop and go. I don't know if that is lag time in updating, but previous versions of this app were more accurate.
  • TEXAS 3/5

    By Farmit84
    Need to make one for Texas and all other states this app is good but needs to cover all the states!
  • Excellent 5/5

    By Kaje333333
    Great app! I was surprised to see reviews mentioning lack of updates though the day- i use the app frequently to check the least traveled route out Minneapolis and always find it to be refreshed and accurate. I LOVE the camera feature too.
  • Great in theory 1/5

    By Anderson5178
    It would be awesome but it never is updated! Road conditions are 16 hours old on major freeways! An hour or two makes a big difference during weather emergencies!
  • 5-star if they kept it current 3/5

    By MicCor3
    This is a great app! However, it loses its luster when the weather is bad and the last update was was twelve hours ago. I have a long drive in so it would be nice to get the most up-to-date road conditions. I guess you can't really argue with free.
  • Love it! 5/5

    By Wight__Spider
    The power of the Internet!! Only a taste of what's to come in the future when even our thermostats talk to each other. Oh wait, mine already does that too‼️
  • Not working right 1/5

    By TMYW
    In order to see the traffic, you have to remove the option and then turn it back on every time the app is launched. This is a pain and was not necessary before the latest update.
  • No Traffic Updates 1/5

    By Mary12356789
    Ever since I updated to the current apple software version the traffic maps won't show red/yellow/green. It shows no traffic info or crash alerts, nothing. It's just blank. Which pretty much makes the app useless.
  • Not better 3/5

    By Crazy_horse571
    I like the old version where it told you the condition of the roads not just if they had snow on them or not. I like knowing if the roads are icy or not too.
  • Fred 4/5

    By $&;",@:[email protected]:9-&,&;@.4)
    Easy to use. Like it better than the web.
  • Great service 5/5

    By Stephanied952
    Love this app, lets me know when state roads are closed for construction, flooding, etc.
  • The Cameras are awesome! 5/5

    By Air Guitar Rocks
    I use the the web based version a lot but I really like the mobile app. Good work!
  • Lifesaver 5/5

    By Jhfnfsgj
    With all the flooding issues in the Midwest right now, this app was incredibly helpful for planning my long distance routes. Super easy to use and detailed. Thanks to the team who made it - it's awesome.
  • Greasy App but cams don't refresh 3/5

    By BigBroLB
    Love this app. Live info at your finger tips. But the cameras don't refresh. I come back in an hour and look still same picture.
  • Great when it works, but that's not often 2/5

    By SrjG
    This is occasionally a very helpful app for driving in Minnesota winters. I say occasionally because half the time it won't show the winter road condition layer. Even when it does show the road condition layer it sometimes displays badly out of date information. During our most recent snow storm (Feb 22, 2014) it displayed recent updates, but an hour later showed only data from the previous day. It did this all morning before reverting to more recent info in the afternoon.
  • Okay app 1/5

    By Paulo Pagliari
    Can not update road conditions! As other reviews say... Needs lots of work to become as reliable as the web version
  • Worthless 1/5

    By Klaxn
    This app is completely worthless. It no longer shows road conditions which is what I need the app for.
  • Layers won't load 2/5

    By Malmski
    Half the time I use this, the road conditions layer isn't there. It's not that it's turned off, it doesn't even show up in the layer list.
  • Needs Work 1/5

    By burninbarrels15
    Great concept, still has many bugs to fix. After initial download, road conditions layer was there. After a few minutes just disappeared and won't come back. Deleted and downloaded app again, no road conditions layer at all. Incident icons sometimes work when u touch them sometimes not. Has potential but needs work!
