Palm releases new traffic application for Treo smartphones
For Treo customers who need help navigating traffic-jammed commutes, Palm, Inc. has announced Traffic for Treo Smartphones. The wireless traffic application helps users make commute decisions quickly with interactive maps and incident information located conveniently on their Palm Treo 600 or Treo 650 smartphones.

Traffic for Treo Smartphones is initially available in 10 of the most traffic-congested markets in the United States: Atlanta, Baltimore/DC, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle.

The data for Traffic for Treo comes from Metrocommute, which develops advanced travel information systems to deliver enhanced traffic information. Metrocommute begins with sensor and incident information from local Departments of Transportation and complements it with information collected by its operations staff, and extra cameras and speed detectors at major "choke points," such as bridges and tolls.

Traffic for Treo Smartphones let users see primary, secondary and tertiary roads for specific metro areas to make decisions on different commute options. Users can customize the application with a bookmark to quickly jump to a particular location and move the map in any direction to see the geographic area that is most important to them, and zoom in on a particular area.

The application also shows a blinking traffic alert that redirects to a dialog box with more information about traffic speed and incident details.

Traffic for Treo Smartphones is available with a 14-day free trial, after which users will be prompted to go to the Traffic for Treo Smartphone web page to sign up for a subscription plan. Plans start at US$4.99 per month for one city. Customers can choose two cities for US$7.99/month, or all cities for US$14.99/month.
