Is there an app that will notify me at a time i specify for days i specify (or weekdays) if there is currently heavy traffic on the route from my current location to a location i specify? Ideally with the option of then viewing the route on a map.

Note: I'm in the UK, although i'm hoping for a solution that works with google maps traffic data, so fingers crossed for an app that works where google maps traffic works.

I know there are widgets that show route traffic status, but i'd like to avoid having to check my phone, instead relying on the (absence of a) notification.


Not specific to Android, but traffic.com lets you define "drives" and will send SMS and/or email alerts if issues are detected. Other sites have similar features.

  • Thanks. If a can find a uk equivalent then I might have do in with something like this. Deleting the emails could get annoying, and it wouldn't be as integrated as I'd hoped – George Duckett Oct 13 '11 at 20:37
  • Ah. You didn't mention country. Have you searched in the market for "traffic"? – ale Oct 14 '11 at 0:19

  • Thanks, i had searched and could only find ones to view traffic, not get notified about it, websites i've found don't offer the control i want either. – George Duckett Oct 14 '11 at 7:33
