Not sure what all the poor reviews are about, maybe it just got updated. I just downloaded this and it's awesome! Accurate traffic reports and access to live traffic cameras, plus info on all the ferries, passes, construction and even wait times for border crossing to Canada. A must have if you live in Washington. The only thing it needs is a little dot or something in your current location on the map as it can be hard to find where you are if you don't know already
Traffic map virtually unusable
I used the old old "app" which simply took you to the website. While this wasn't ideal and the website wasn't very mobile-friendly, I could still take a glance at the overall traffic map, see where the bad spots were and make quick adjustments. Now the little flags showing all of the traffic cameras take up the whole map and you can't see a thing. Ridiculous. There should be a way to turn these off (if there is, I can't find it). Looks like I'll be going back to the website.
Good app! Not sure why the reviews are so bad.
I always know my ferry times and if there is room on the boat with this app. Been very useful as I use ferries and the Canada border crossing all the time. Info is accurate and helpful, interface is clean and easy to use.
