Route Notifications will send you notification of an incident or event along a route that you have specified and saved. There are two types of routes: a particular interstate or road in a particular county, and a route with a start address and an end address. For the route that you set and save, you choose which notificaitons to receive and the time frame in which to receive them. You might have a route saved for going to work that is only notifying you from 6:30 a.m. to 8 a..m., and a route for going home that is notifying you from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. If you have several routes saved, you can also turn on or off all notifications with one switch.
