INRIX Traffic Information Helps Navfree's 12 Million Drivers Find A Better Way To Go

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- INRIX, a leading global provider of traffic information and driver services, and Navfree introduced at Mobile World Congress the global navigation app provider's first real-time traffic information service designed to help its 12.5 million drivers worldwide save time, fuel and reduce frustration traveling every day.

"Whether driving to a new destination, an important business meeting or just trying to get home in time for dinner, INRIX helps make our customers' journeys as smooth as possible," said Navfree CEO Peter Atalla.

INRIX Vice President of Mobile Bill Schwebel added, "Navfree ranks among the top navigation apps in the world holding the top spot on apps stores in the UK, US, France and Germany. With the launch of Navfree's first real-time traffic service, 12 million drivers have the immediate opportunity to benefit from our community's efforts working together to avoid traffic."

With drivers in North America and Europe sitting idle in traffic on average for almost 30 hours last year 1, more than 150 million drivers in 32 countries can rely on INRIX traffic information in the car, on their smartphone and from traffic news reports to help them save time travelling every day.  Available to Navfree customers as an in-app purchase on iPhone and Android in 31 countries, the service will enable drivers to see at a glance current traffic conditions along their route as well as the expected impact of traffic on travel times.

INRIX analyses real-time traffic data from a diverse set of sources ranging from its robust crowd-sourced network to traditional road sensors and gathers information on accidents, road works and other traffic impacting events to provide up-to-the-minute traffic information and reliable travel and arrival times. The company's traffic services are used by more than 200 partners and customers including Audi, BMW, Ford Motor Company and to help millions of drivers avoid traffic.
