lchiu7: I noitice on my phone when I pull up Google Now, it telle that it's going to be 12 minutes to my home from the CBD (or where I am now) and there there is normal traffic. I wonder where it sources this information?


It's usually crowdsourced from other android phone users.

freitasm: Great this information is available but... These sites are only good if you are planning a trip but once you have started down the road that's old information.

But they don't seem to have a mobile site that people can check on the road.




I think Tomtom Live HD Traffic would feed off this, so would navman/garmin where RDS-TMC is available

Yeah - I want a mobile app that'll give me a map with roads coloured red (congested), green (flowing freely) or the default pale yellow (no data). Kind of like the traffic overlay in Google Maps, except with information that isn't 18 months out of date like Google's is.


"NZ Traffic" app on Windows Phone Marketplace and Windows 8 Store

even has a Live Tile that shows your the mway traffic with red/green flow, and you can pin mway webcams to your start screen as live tiles too
