Free Inrix Traffic Data on your Mobile Phone
We’ve talked a lot about traffic feeds here at GPSLodge.com and I am looking forward to the future developments in traffic reporting to help make my life better by keeping me out of traffic jams and wasting time. Well, if you don’t have a traffic capable GPS in your possession you may still get high quality traffic feeds on your mobile phone.
Jim, one of our readers here at GPSLodge.com, pointed out the fact that Weather.com mobile has extensive traffic coverage that has Inrix written all over it. Weather.com is running a traffic service module by TCS, and one of their offerings is TeleAtlas traffic feeds.
In a spot check of a few cities, you can get some very good coverage (Boston is GREAT), and having it bookmarked on your browser-enabled mobile phone allows you quick access to current conditions. It’s not going to route you around traffic, but it will sure give you an idea of what’s up in your area.
To be clear, the regular internet site for Weather.com is running Traffic.com data, which has its own advantages, but for me in Boston, the broader coverage is essential.
So, Hit this link to Weather.com mobile and then enter in your own city to see what the coverage is and see if it can help you out.
Thanks for the tip Jim!
