Live traffic info for Europe – from Google Maps
We were all waited for this and the time to enjoy the change has come: Google Maps offers live traffic info for several countries from Europe. This will allow users to find out how congested a road is when they go into a journey, and Google Maps offers them an alternative route which to avoid the traffic jams where indicated.
The thirteen countries that will beneficiate of this feature are: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland and Israel (even though it’s not part of Europe).
The roads from which the data are collected are freeways and highways as well as larger roads in major cities. It also features an improved street level coverage for British people.
The live traffic info will be available on Google Maps, Google Maps for mobile and Google Maps Navigation (the beta version).
What do you think about this improvement: do you think that it can get real time update with traffic info?
