This app lists all rest areas in the state, info that is readily available in better apps, but the hope is that this app lets one know the status of the rest areas. There is nothing more frustrating than anxiously waiting for a rest area coming up only to discover it is closed. It is unclear whether the rest areas listed are in fact open or whether they simply exist. Further, other apps list rest area by both interstate number and mile marker number. This app does not. If you are driving on I25, you must open every I25 rest area listed until you find one close to you. Huge waste of time and so easily fixed. MM should be listed in the directory.
I used the interactive map to confirm the road conditions in and out of Taos. I saw updates on rough conditions with crews working the roads in the morning followed by an update showing the trucks plowed, salted and sanded the roads.
This app is never updated. And I mean the road conditions! Why did the state make this app if they don't use it? Why should I? Just watch tv for road and weather, just remember if there is a fatality accident the road will be closed for 12 hours(no joke) and if it snows, the road will be closed for 18(no joke)! Good luck!
This app could be great. If only the people in charge of it would do their job. Instead I believe they sit around drinking beer and smoking dope and talking about the ugly people they had sex with the night before. What are you expect from people who just draw a paycheck and don’t care about their jobs.
This is better than the webapp my fellow Abq to SF commuters have been relying on for years. Works terrific on iPhone 4, so you should have good results if your phone is not obsolete. ;) Yes, it can be slow to load, but look at the level of detail you get on all types of road info and the granular control you have over that data. I'll show this to my whiny California friends next time they cry about "backwards" NM. Thanks NM DOT!
I use this site all the time on my laptop, and the mobile app is a lot easier to navigate than the same site on a phone browser. I have not had any problems with it, and it’s great to be able to pull up a live picture of Interstate highways before getting in the car. Highly recommended if you live or travel frequently in our state.
A personal thank you to the application designer, for the time and effort in creating this useful application... ~ layout of app was easy for me to navigate. ~ the real time camera info, as well as crash and road closure reports, is valuable information when i am making critical logistical decisions regarding my daily driving itineraries... ~ room for improvement, such as: … links from the information to maps & locations … a "go to mile marker" feature would be useful
Use this anytime we are traveling to our home in RedRiver NM, especially in winter. Excellent for viewing winter conditions, icy roads, closures and accidents. Highly recommend. Wish TEXAS DOT would come up with a similar app.
The previous version was simple and easy to navigate. One or two clicks got me to the info I wanted. This new version isn't designed for a phone- tiny links requiring multiple clicks to get to the info.
Been waiting for this app for awhile. Now its here I am underwhelmed. It DOES NOT work on the 3GS. I only thing I get to load is the "Do not use app while driving" warning. And that is super zoomed and you can't see all of the image. Bummer. Go back to the drawing board.
As I am stuck in snow in my driveway, the program states "That here are currently no weather events reported" .Other Internet sites reporting snow packed roads with icy conditions.Nuff said....not reliable information .
