ITIS traffic guidance for new Mondeo

TRAFFIC data company ITIS Holdings has joined forces with Ford to offer its systems on the Mondeo and Focus.

ITIS will provide its radio data system – traffic message channel (RDS-TMC) in the Mondeo immediately with the Focus soon to follow.

The service will be standard on all satellite navigation systems and will allow drivers to receive real-time and predictive traffic information, with the aim of allowing them the opportunity to re-route around congestion.

Ford's new compact MPV, the Focus C-MAX, will also benefit from this new traffic information service when the car goes on sale later this year.

Ford and ITIS have signed a three-year contract which is part of a larger framework agreement to provide RDS-TMC across other Premier Automotive Group marques including Land Rover, Aston Martin, Volvo and Jaguar.

Peter Fleet, Ford of Britain marketing director, said: 'The adoption of the ITIS service is a clear example of Ford's ongoing commitment to telematics and to providing our customers with innovative technology. This service will ensure we continue to offer our customers the leading-edge technology they demand.'
