Route Alert

Product Features:
* Check traffic conditions on planned route
* View route maps and travel time estimates
* Set up automated notifications
* Home Screen Widget
* Customize your route by adding your own waypoints

Product Description:
Before you leave for a destination, use Route Alert to check traffic conditions and avoid delays. When activated, Route Alert can be used to quickly view route time with traffic or a more detailed view can be used to check time with traffic by overlaying current traffic conditions for your chosen route on a map.

How does it work? The first step is to create an “alert.” An alert is the route you take to get from point A to point B, such as work to home. Once you’ve found your route and saved it, it shows up in your alert queue. Your alert queue is the main screen when the app loads. From here you can manually check your route time based on traffic conditions (click traffic light button), view your route on the map (map icon), set up an automated notification to check time with traffic, and delete the alert from the app.
