Great recent improvements, but some serious issues, too. After the major updates dropped, I looked around in the app. Lots of great new features. Some annoying ones too, though. One is the Where To? box sitting at the bottom of the map. I'll never use it and you can't get rid of it. Also, I created an account and saved a bunch of settings. I got a new phone and now I can't log in. I tried the Forgot Password several times but kept getting an error.

Since the new update, the app freezes or crashes or closes on me entirely, every time it's opened. I rely on this app religiously for work since I'm a daily freeway/highway driver, throughout several cities. There are too many icons in the way. Not sure who conjured this update up, but it was fine the way it was! I'm on Android. I'm begging you, please fix the issues, it's not usable! Thank you!!

Updated review... After an apparent issue with Android the app is working well. I still wish I could hide the "where to" search box, but at least the rest of it is fixed. This app is a must for safe traveling in winter months in Minnesota. Thanks to MNDOT for quick fix to app. Old review.. horrible! Cluttered with icons which mean nothing. I miss the quick look at the whole state road conditions without having to zoom in on certain area. This is much more cumbersome than it used to be.
