Navigon to unleash Traffic for North America customers for $24.99. This is $5 more than what CoPilot are charging for their traffic. Navigon say that the Traffic will be available for purchase within about a month. CoPilot’s traffic service for Europe and North America are literally days away now!
Navigon say “The system ‘uses real-time speed data from over one million drivers across North America including commercial fleets such as trucks and taxis but also regular drivers with a GPS system. So if for example several vehicles on a road report slow speed, the system recognizes congestion and provides an alternate and faster route.
The feature also uses an intelligent fusion of information from traffic cameras, speed sensors and conventional traffic messages coming through a radio network. In addition, the system includes historic traffic data to assist with the prediction of road conditions when calculating a route. This includes information about traffic conditions on certain holidays or yearly events, allowing the driver to avoid taking routes that traditionally are congested on a regular basis.”
Let’s recap at that pricing again…
I think the prices speak for themselves
