The Australian newspaper today reports that local company Intelematics Australia is trialling the broadcast of traffic management information to enabled GPS devices through its SUNA service. This is great news and finally brings Australia in line with Europe and the US. Device support for receiving, “the message channel” (TMC) radio broadcasts, will initially be provided by a new range of Mitac/MIO GPS devices and will require an ongoing subscription.
Time for me to upgrade (Note to self – Xmas wishlist item)! This should be a must-have if you live in Sydney where one accident can lead to hours of motionless pain.
