Florida 511 is a free download providing up-to-date traffic information on all of Florida’s interstates, toll roads and many major metropolitan roadways including I-95, I-4, I-75, I-10 and Florida’s Turnpike. The app offers text and audio traffic updates and important alerts, as well as camera views on crashes, congestion, construction and more. All Florida 511 traffic data is provided by the Florida Department of Transportation.

Users can set the app to provide information for a range of up to 200 miles from their location, view traffic in a select city or county by typing in a desired location or receive traffic information based on their registered My Florida 511 custom routes. Travel time information also is available based on location and direction of travel. App users can share traffic information from the app to their favorite SMS messaging, email and social media services.

Disappointed in this application
Having moved here from Georgia I was excited to see that Florida had a 511 travel application and found it to be confusing on how to use. Several key factors is that you can't see on the map what the traffic conditions is on the interstates throughout the state...you have to put in the name of the major city before you can get that information which is stupid for if you don't know the names of cities along the Interstate to pull up then you can't get the information. Plus the application wants to use your current location - this is a hindrance if you are trying to help somebody else travel down to Florida and let them know where the traffic is where they can go to bypass it and such.
They need to get with the developers for the Georgia 511 traffic and see what they can do to update this application with links to see what traffic is on all the interstates where the incidents are on each and interstates do not rely on users current location.
No traffic app is perfect
That being said this is the first traffic app I go to and it's very good. The signs you see on roads telling you about accidents and traffic conditions ahead, this app basically tells you the same information and then some. And the fact that it verbally tells you information is great vs having to look at your phone and read about traffic. Nobody wants to crash while looking at their phone reading about traffic and becoming a traffic story themselves.
Practically useless app
I was excited to see an app from THE source of traffic information, but I was greatly disappointed. Crashes, doesn't show road closures or traffic map, snows outdated info. Do not bother. Your phone's mapping software is better traffic info tool than this app.
