Editors' review

Inrix Traffic Maps & Alerts centralizes local traffic alerts, maps, and camera feeds right where you need them, on your Android device. But Inrix Traffic also earns its keep by helping you navigate unfamiliar streets and avoid traffic jams. If you're mobile, it's essential.

Pros

Easy to localize: Inrix Traffic automatically displayed our local traffic map, traffic cameras, and alerts in a no-nonsense layout.

Current conditions: Crowdsourcing means up-to-date data from a wide range of sources, including GPS.

Spiffy maps: Easy zooming and navigation and features such as North Up and Follow Me make Inrix Traffic's maps fast and easy to use, even when traffic is heavy.

Custom ride: Inrix Traffic's Settings allow wide customization, such as a list of Enabled Incidents: Police, Accidents, Road Closures, Hazard, Events, Construction, and Congestion. Just uncheck any you don't want to receive.

Cons

Lack of turn-by-turn navigation: Inrix is great for checking traffic data in the immediate vicinity, but it does not include turn-by-turn navigation options.

Limited location saves: The non-premium version of Inrix caps the number of locations that you can save. If you're a frequent commuter who visits multiple sites a week, then the premium version will sound more reasonable. Those who don't spend time focusing on every little traffic detail won't need the premium upgrade.

Bottom Line

Inrix Traffic Maps & Alerts has something for every commuter and traveler. The detailed traffic data makes this a great companion for the detail-oriented; but as a standard navigation app, it falters. What makes Inrix shine is its efficiency in displaying road conditions at a high-level, but if you're actually driving, the number of options and interactions involved to set a location makes it less ideal during real-time movement.
