The South Dakota 511 mobile application provides real-time access to traffic and
traveler information supplied by the South Dakota Department of Transportation
(South Dakota DOT). Maps depict current traffic conditions, as well as incident
and construction events that can impact traffic...
I like the fact that you don’t have to dial the number to check road conditions. The voiceover reads every details just as you hear on the phone. However I would recommend if you could have notifications on changes like if no travel alerts. Send notifications on the road conditions when winter weather hits the area or when road constructions are going on in any area near our locations. I would like to get the information without opening the app.
Overall not too bad but surrounding states have much better apps that are easier to use. This app has no easy way to see a legend at the same time you are looking at the road conditions. So if you don’t happen to know that a pink road with black dotted line means “whatever” you are out of luck. You need to go through several menus to get to actual road info in text format. This app could easily be improved dramatically with just a few tweaks. Our neighbors in Minnesota give a good example of an easy to use 511 app.
I had such high hopes
While the map is similar to the website and the tools are all there, the data is OLD. The cameras show the correct time, but the pictures are from a night time view when it's 2pm. If I can't trust the data, it's useless. It's extremely clumsy on a phone as well. I also have the same complaint about the map: no key to tell you what the various colors are. Worse, if you zoom in to look at an area, it makes it smaller and smaller, not bigger.
Better than nothing
Map is awful to use. Route is only slightly better to get info. Surrounding states all have better and more easily viewable and usable apps. Only reason for one star is because it does allow a quick route view summary. Otherwise it’s terrible. Please, please, please.... link up with surrounding states and get what they have and use. Could be so much better.
This app is a wreck
Map doesn’t load properly, zooming rarely works, and it’s not possible to see the map and the legend at the same time. Utterly unusable—worse even than the website, which is quite bad as well. Nebraska, Minnesota, and Iowa have nearly identical apps. Please contact your neighbors in one of these DOT offices to get the vendor’s name and move SD 511 to this same user experience.
Needs another update.
Needs another update. The saved road camera location titles are not showing up unless you tap and hold the column so you have to hunt and peck to find the right location. I have IOS 13.
Neglected Support and Looks Old
The app still uses the old UI features since iOS 6. The interface is clunky. Moving around the map is a pain. It seems that it’s using some proprietary map app and not Apple Maps. I’m just better off planning ahead and pay attention to the weather. I uninstalled it.
I like this app. I like that I can see the roads and read the data. Recommended it to all of my family members.
Could be better...
I was so excited to find this app, but I can't find anything to tell me what the various colors mean for the roads. I turned on "show legend" but that didn't seem to work.
Update your app
Would you update your app to match Minnesota and Iowa? Yours is so difficult to read. You have to switch between map and legend to see what things mean. When you zoom into the map, it doesn’t zoom correctly. The bordering states are so much more user friendly.
Overall decent app
Current version doesn’t display highways or camera names in their respective screens when in dark mode on iOS.
The app is just awful. It looks like it hasn’t been updated in years. It doesn’t work well for newer iPhones. I deleted right after I tried to use it the first time. Not helpful what so ever. If I could give it negative stars, I’d give it a negative five.
Needs a bit of work.
Need to update, in dark mode the legend shows icons, but you cannot view the words. Would be nice if you could see the legend and map at the same time.
Not even worth the download. Old interface, nothing loads, and hard to read if it does work. Clearly, neither time nor effort seems to be put into creating or improving this app.
This should not be difficult, c’mon SD. App had road conditions on map but good luck trying to figure out what they mean. No legend!! Leave it to government. Do yourself a favor and skip the app go straight to the website!!
