Free mobile traffic application from the RAC
AVOID getting caught in traffic – use the RAC’s free traffic information programme to keep your van mobile.
Available to business van drivers who use either an Apple iPhone or a Google Android phone, the new mobile phone application, the first by RAC, is progressive amongst traffic apps as it shows start and end points of congestion, overlayed onto Google Maps.
The app pinpoints your exact location, meaning an immediate view of regional traffic is easily at hand. Text and audio summaries of traffic conditions are also available.
This level of detail provides the most precise and accurate view of live traffic conditions on the UK’s roads that is currently available on a mobile phone app, says the RAC. RAC’s app utilises up-to-the-minute traffic updates from Trafficlink, which provides real-time traffic information.
The app is free to download, and is available for both iPhone and Google Android phones. Business van drivers can download the app at the iTunes App Store and Android Market.
