Nokia teams up with ARC on traffic apps

Nokia is working with ARC Transistance, the European network of automobile clubs, to provide real time traffic information of Nokia devices.

The phone maker will offer the service as a bonus in Nokia Maps 2.0 and in future versions of Nokia Maps.

By adding RTTI, Nokia can save 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 dynamically re-route during navigation and provide a faster route.

ARC Transistance Traffic Information services aggregate the real time road and traffic conditions of 16 countries in Europe. More countries will be added shortly.
