  • Traffic Incorporation

    Are there any plans from anyone to incorporate traffic situations into MapMonkey using an always-on internet connection?

    this feature would be very useful to me, but i would need to find the software that can successfully acheive this before i start paying 50$/mo for verizon wireless' unlimited wireless internet

    I think the problem is there really isn't a good source for national traffic data. Not that I'm aware of anyhow.
    AMD XP 2600+/512MB RAM/120GB hard drive
    Opus 150W/DVD/GPS/7" Lilliput TS/802.11g/Bluetooth

        If your area is covered by a trafic site such as www.smartraveller.com you acn just check online conditions over the web.

          There will be a service available in the UK shortly to allow this, luckily for the UK there is easily available, free to use resources for traffic information, unfortunately there is no such thing in the US that we are aware of. The info is in beta testing currently and will be available soon.

              There is always XM NavTrafic. Check out the XM site.http://www.xmradio.com/xmnavtraffic/index.jsp

              It is currently integrated on the new Acura RL, the new Caddy CTS, and the Pioneer Avic N2 and D2.

              Now, if only our community can somehow integrate the service with out GPSs, all would be good.

                  Hate too say it, but it has been a long time since I have been in Florida, and I am not familiar with it's geography, but I see that it just/will be adding Tampa and Orlando in June,and it already includes Miami/Ft Lauderdale.

                  So, what coverage are you missing?

                  Michael

                  Edit: Just did some research, and I see that Tampa and Orlando are not close to Miami. Should have realized. However, Miami is covered so far. There is a map here.

                    Actually, TMC isn't officially available in the UK since it's still in beta testing, but it does work!

                    See this review:

                    He used Navigon in the UK with TMC support and it worked just fine.
