Traffic Flow and Congestion Information Launched for New Zealand

“Providing traffic flow and congestion data will result in improved travel times, lower fuel bills, and less stress from unexpected traffic congestion.”

“This is the most important development in real time traffic information we have seen in New Zealand,” says Mr Allen.

The AA’s traffic flow and congestion information service has been developed by Geosmart, the AA-owned online mapping company. GeoSmart also supplies traffic information to GPS companies in New Zealand, including TomTom. TomTom utilises this information as part of TomTom HD Traffic on connected GPS devices in New Zealand.

Andrew Cooper, Managing Director, TomTom Asia Pacific says “the introduction of TomTom LIVE Services and HD Traffic to New Zealand marks a fundamental breakthrough in the quality and functionality of GPS devices, giving New Zealand drivers real-time information about road conditions.”

Mr Cooper says “we are very excited to bring TomTom LIVE Services and HD Traffic to New Zealand, the first country in the Asia Pacific to start utilising our world-leading technology. GeoSmart was instrumental in providing a high-quality traffic information feed into our HD Traffic technology. We believe that through innovations such as TomTom HD Traffic, we can reduce overall road congestion.”
