ActiveTraffic uses the highest quality real-time traffic flow information for major and secondary roads available on the market today, to intelligently calculate the fastest route around traffic jams and provide an accurate ETA to your destination. Here is an overview of the key features and benefits of the ActiveTraffic service, as well as information on how to add it to your CoPilot Live.
Detailed Alternate Route Preview – Know exactly what you’re getting yourself into BEFORE you detour
With ActiveTraffic you will receive an alert if CoPilot Live has identified a faster route through traffic—based on the actual road conditions at that moment—to your destination. The alert will display the new suggested route along with the amount of travel time it will take you compared to your original route. This allows you to make an educated decision on whether or not to accept the alternate route. For example, perhaps the alternate route will save you 25 minutes but you don’t want leave a main road because you’re running dangerously low on gas so the original route may be the better choice. See screenshots below.
Accurate and Reliable ETAs – Know exactly when you’re going to arrive
ActiveTraffic uses real-time traffic speeds and location reports, to maintain a realistic estimated time of arrival (ETA) throughout your drive—one that is based on the actual road conditions now and not from 30 or 45 minutes ago. For example, if you’re on your way to pick up your son from pre-school and run into traffic, you can call ahead and let them know you’re running late and what time they can expect you.
At-a-Glance Display of Traffic Conditions – Know what you’re driving into
ActiveTraffic is designed to make sure you’re constantly informed of what’s ahead of you and what you can expect throughout your trip. If you choose, you can display a dynamic traffic bar alongside your map that provides a color-coded view of real-time traffic flow along your route. You can actually see how far ahead the traffic congestion goes. Sections of the route where traffic is flowing freely are in green, those with moderate congestion in yellow and severe congestion in red. And here’s a tip, tap the traffic bar at any time if you want to quickly view the Traffic Map which shows traffic flow on the route and in the surrounding area. This a helpful feature to use before you even get in the car! Set your destination, and then view the Traffic Map to see what the current conditions look like. See screenshots below.
Now that you know how ActiveTraffic can help you travel a little more hassle-free and a lot more informed….what are you waiting for?
