Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) August 15, 2008
Vizzion, Inc. has announced that it’s popular ‘Traffic Vizzion’ service, which allows drivers to view thousands of live traffic camera images on their cell phone or PDA, is now available on the BlackBerry.
A subscriber to Traffic Vizzion has access to a vast network of traffic cameras that spans North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland and New Zealand. Traffic camera locations are shown on a map and can be easily selected for viewing. By using this service, which is also available for Windows Mobile devices, a motorist can view road conditions along their route, and avoid traffic congestion, saving time, money and frustration.
“As gas prices reach higher and higher, idling in traffic becomes more than just a time waster and source of frustration, it can also lead to significant additional fuel costs,” says Chris Cooper, President of Vizzion, Inc. “A typical user who encounters traffic on their daily commute can easily save $ 150 in gas in one year by using Traffic Vizzion. We’re excited to bring these potential savings and benefits to the BlackBerry community.”
Drivers who have a GPS can go one step further and make use of the unique “Watch Road Ahead” feature. With access to the position and direction information from the GPS, Traffic Vizzion uses Patent Pending technology to continuously show images from cameras several miles ahead, allowing the driver to exit their route early and avoid the traffic jam. This feature is completely automatic, leaving your hands free to do the driving.
Available in over 150 cities and providing access to over 7,500 traffic cameras, Traffic Vizzion is targeted at commuters, business travelers, long-haul drivers, delivery drivers, vacationers, or anyone else who needs to see road conditions in advance.
