GeoSmart expands to Australia

25 Aug 11

Just over a year since launching real-time traffic services in New Zealand, kiwi company GeoSmart has taken its service across the ditch.


Motorists with compatible car navigation systems will be able to receive live information on road accidents, incidents and traffic congestion anywhere compatible phone networks are available.


Phil Allen, GeoSmart general manager, says the service also allows navigation units to calculate the delay on a trip based on traffic congestion, and offer alternate routes.


"We are seeing a new generation of car navigation buyers in New Zealand and overseas who often know their way to their destination, but don’t know what is ahead that may prevent them from arriving on time.”


GeoSmart is a wholly owned subsidiary of the New Zealand Automobile Association. Go here for more.
