Completely Hands Free! Listen to your phone play Pennsylvania Turnpike travel advisories near you, in your direction of travel. As you travel, it will automatically keep you updated. You dont need to register, you dont need to sign up anywhere for anything. The app uses the phones built-in GPS to stream nearby alerts. Turn it on before you leave and it will start talking when you are getting near a roadway problem. Alerts pause when you are on the phone, and pick up where they left off when you finish. If you wish to stop the application, simply utilize your mobile device's "back" or "clear" button while the application is open, and it will prompt you to be sure you want to shut down the application. Confirming you wish to close the app, will then shut down the application and stop advisories from being played.How it WorksStart the application before starting out of your driveway. You will hear active Pennsylvania Turnpike advisories that are within your range. Now put down the phone and focus on driving. There is now nothing you need to touch on the phone, and nothing you need to read on the phone. This is completely hands-free.The application will remain on while you drive, "broadcasting" any travel alerts for reported conditions within a set mile-range (that you can set for yourself) of your current location. If your phone is able to provide a high enough GPS precision, we will only notify you of advisories in your direction on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Once you are off the Turnpike or are no longer sending an accurate enough signal, we provide notifications on advisories in all directions (within your selected reporting radius) for your convenience.Conditions will be broadcast once, and then the broadcast stream will go quiet until: a. There is an update to an advisory in range, or b. Until you have just come within range of another advisory orc. A set time period has elapsed (that you get to set) and you want to re-hear all advisories that are still in rangeIf you get a call, or make a call while a travel alert is playing, the alert will pause, and will resume playing when the call has ended.User Modifications Features/ Experience You can modify several options. These configurations are saved on your phone.a. The advisory replay intervalb. The All Points advisory replay intervalc. The range (in miles) for hearing advisoriesThe application gives you audio player controls for Play, Pause, Stop, Skip, and Replay All. At any time you may turn off automatic reporting of your location for advisory updates. If you do, you can manually request advisories to play by pressing the "play" button, at which time the device will utilize the highest precision location tool available (whether it be GPS or cell tower triangulation). You do not need to register with us or with the Pennsylvania Turnpike to use this app or to get these alerts. We don't get or record any identifying information about you or your phone. By default, you will be elected into reporting your device-determined speed along with your location to our servers, but you can elect to opt-out from within the application. You must opt-out of this selection each time the application is restarted.The TechnologyThe application is based on Voicenet's patent pending "Open Microphone Platform", which is a queue-driven streaming technology platform used in combination with your phone's built-in GPS. The data for the system is the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission's travel advisory data.Notice: Continuous GPS usage may cause increased loss of battery power.Recent changes:- Added all directions option to settings- Added Quality Control mode for reporting app problems- Added additional mileage options for advisory range- Graphical changes- Added options for allowing or preventing advisories while phone calls are in progressContent rating: Low Maturity
