Drivers In Germany Are Saving Time And Fuel

by diane 2010-05-05 15:44

A traffic connected unit in Europe will help drivers keep them from getting lost. According to a NAVTEQ study, distances traveled were reduced and fuel efficiency increased, which would decrease each driver's CO2 emissions by 21% - all results which illustrate the many benefits of a real-time traffic service.
Additional probe data will be collected from Garmin devices and integrated into the system.
NAVTEQ, the leading global provider of maps, traffic and location data enabling navigation, location-based services and mobile advertising around the world, has been selected by Garmin to provide its real-time traffic service in Germany for the Garmin nuvi 1690. This will be the first time Garmin has offered a European traffic service on a connected device.
NAVTEQ Traffic in Germany delivers comprehensive, real-time traffic information for the primary road network. It covers 25,000 kilometers of motorways using NAVTEQ's own sensors, and data from public traffic information centers also provides coverage of trunk and arterial roads in cities and other areas. Additional probe data will be collected from Garmin devices and integrated into the system.
Detailed information on road construction, traffic speeds and accidents is linked to the NAVTEQ© map and transmitted directly to the Garmin nuvi 1690 devices, which feature an integrated wireless module. Included in the price of the PND is free access for one year to Garmin nuLink!™ services which include safety cameras, weather, fuel prices, flight status, white page telephone listings and, of course, NAVTEQ Traffic for Germany.
The nuvi 1690 also includes Garmin's ecoRoute™, which helps people develop better driving habits by producing fuel and mileage reports based on fuel consumption rates, driving speeds and vehicle acceleration data.
Drivers using navigation devices with traffic information spent 18% less time driving per trip, saving four days every year compared to those without navigation. Distances travelled were reduced and fuel efficiency increased, which would decrease each driver's CO2 emissions by 21% - all results which illustrate the many benefits of a real-time traffic service.
