Smartphone apps continue to evolve — case in point, INRIX, a leading international provider of traffic information and driver services, has introduced a new traffic app for smartphones that helps drivers locate the closest cheapest gas from more than 100,000 gas station locations nationwide.
The INRIX Traffic app helps drivers not only save time and money avoiding traffic but it will now allow them to spend less on gas every time they fill up.
The app helps drivers:
- Find the closest, cheapest gas (premium feature): Drivers can locate the cheapest gas stations along their route viewing fuel price information updated daily for more than 100,000 gas stations nationwide.
- Save time and fuel by finding the fastest routes by providing drivers with up to the minute traffic maps for 1 million miles of highways, interstates and city streets nationwide. Additionally, the app provides drivers with the fastest routes, travel times and arrival times to their home and office from any location.
- The app helps drivers schedule their most efficient driving window by showing how traffic conditions and travel times are expected to change over the next 8 hours. INRIX Traffic is the only app that factors in the impacts of school schedules, sporting events, conventions, concerts and other traffic impacting events to help drivers avoid frustrating delays.
- Drivers can share their arrival time with any contact via an auto-generated email or text message.
- Drivers can personalize INRIX Traffic to their individual commute to alert them to accidents and other traffic causing delays specific to their routes.
- Drivers can join the global community of approximately 100 million drivers worldwide – users can instantly view and alert others community members to accidents and other incidents along their route.
Additionally, drivers who upgrade to the premium version of the app have access to even more tools and features to help them avoid gridlock, including the ability to add an unlimited number of destinations and view traffic conditions firsthand through INRIX’s nationwide network of more than 10,000 traffic cameras. A lifetime subscription to the premium version of INRIX Traffic is available for $24.99.
Unlike other traffic tools and navigation apps based on crowd-sourced data alone, INRIX Traffic users benefit from the largest traffic network in the world analyzing real-time information from hundreds of public and private sources ranging from traditional roads sensors and incident reports to a crowd-sourced community of approximately 100 million drivers. Through this unique approach, INRIX delivers real-time traffic information accurate within 2 mph of actual traffic speeds under all driving conditions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The INRIX Traffic App also is available on iOS, Blackberry, Windows Phone and Windows 8.
