  • Predictive Auto-Tracking – Predicts and presents traffic camera views based on your current location and direction to automatically show the traffic cameras in your upcoming trip;

–          SmartAlerts provides real-time traffic construction/maintenance information based on your location so that you are warned ahead of time (e.g., before arriving at a traffic jam or a closed ramp);

  • Support for user-provided Proximity alerts (speed traps, red light cameras) that auto-alert when ahead;

–          Support for merging Proximity alerts from multiple sources (e.g. PhantomAlerts and Trapster)

Release Notes for 1.0:

  • Added feature to play the latest 680 radio traffic report in Toronto – selectable when in auto-tracking mode and touch the 680 icon. The report will be the latest one (on-demand). Exiting the app will stop the playback.
  • UI has changed a bit:
  • New icons
  • In auto-tracking mode, no icons are shown by default.
  1. Touching the screen will display the (non-transparent) icons for a few seconds to allow the user to select an option.
  2. After about 10 seconds or so the icons will be removed from the display
  • In non-auto-tracking mode, touching the screen will now show the options available.
  1. Quick help guide added as an option to aid in usability
  • Selecting a city for traffic cameras will now only load only the city (and not the region as before)
  • This was done to speed things up (i.e. no need to wait to load all cities in a region). This will also reduce memory usage.
    Other optimizations to improve user response performance.

Finally, this version will be simultaneously available in the marketplace AND submitted to ADC-2
