TomTom has introduced a new traffic information service, which can detect traffic jams five times more accurately than previous versions.
HD Traffic 6.0, which is available as part of TomTom LIVE Services, will detect road blocks and road works in real time - even if they haven’t been reported by official sources.
Tests show that HD Traffic 6.0 recognises up to 65% more blocked roads.
It was recently accredited by technical services organisation TUV SUD Group for providing highly accurate and precise jam information on motorways and main roads.
Customers who already have LIVE Services will receive an automatic free update to HD Traffic 6.0.
