Real Time Traffic Info to be added to Nokia Maps (EU)

by Darla Mack

Nokiatraffic Nokia announced today that they are working together with ARC Transistance to provide RTTI or Real Time Traffic Information to users. 

RTTI sill be added as a premium service to Nokia Maps 2.0 and in future versions of Nokia Maps.

"By adding RTTI, Nokia can save precious time for drivers by alerting them of traffic, construction or other road hazards that could affect their journey. When Nokia Maps receives the road updates from ARC Transistance, the application  can dynamicly re-route during navigation and provide a faster route. This is a significant milestone for Nokia Maps, which makes navigation an even more compelling experience for Nokia device owners."

ARC Transistance Traffic  Information services currently aggregates the real time road and traffic conditions of 16 European countries.  Not quite certain if there is a company offering the same type of service for the US as of yet, but hopefully its coming.

Nokia Maps 2.0 can be downloaded from Nokia Betalabs.
