I was quite excited when I saw this, especially since we commute from North Canterbury daily for work. Has anyone here heard of or had anything to do with this system?

Looks like what was on the news over the weekend. Rather cool bit of kit.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

But if more people were using waze, you'd get very similar information.

It's not needing GPS, mobile data, or even a SIM card (apparently), that really piqued my interest. Not sure how well this will work, but sounds exciting if it works well enough!

I imagine it would work very poorly, since it's illegal to use your phone while driving - including, presumably, to read the message their system sends you.

But it's not illegal to have your phone read your messages out to you while driving.
