If I need to know the traffic conditions or the weather forecast, I check apps on my phone. They find it necessary to tell me every 10 minutes that it's currently sunny with a slight chance of rain overnight and that there's a disabled car on the right shoulder of I-75 at the Lockland split. Thanks for the info WLW.
actually, yes I find the traffic/weather updated every 10 minutes pretty useful, especialy driving into the cincy area from north of town, I can determine if I need to take a different route. The weather updates are repeative (as is the traffic typically) but I enjoy knowing I can get a report on what the next couple of days should look like every 10 minutes.
Can I get all that info on my phone? I'm sure I can, but then I have to think to check it before I leave, or if something changes b/w my house and getting to 275, then I'd have to check my phone will driving. I enjoy knowing that if I missed it the 1st time around, I can get an update at every 10 min interval, then switch to something else if I prefer. Call me old fashioned, but I don't live w/ my phone at my hip, old fashion technology like radios work just fine for things like that.
