Santa Clara, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) April 13, 2011
Beat the Traffic®, a leading provider of real-time traffic information for mobile devices, announced the availability of its popular and highly-rated iPhone application in Germany. Starting today, German motorists can download Beat the Traffic for free on their iPhones, instantly view traffic conditions in their area on Beat the Traffic’s interactive maps, and adjust their travel plans accordingly – saving time, fuel and frustration.
The Beat the Traffic iPhone app includes speeds, detailed accident reports and roadwork conditions in Bremen, Nuremberg, Frankfurt, Mannheim, Dusseldorf, Koln, Hamburg, and Dortmund. Coverage in other areas of Germany, in addition to Beat the Traffic apps for other mobile platforms in Germany, will be coming soon. The launch follows recent updates to Beat the Traffic’s iPhone, iPad and Android mobile apps, which now feature improved log-in stability, a metric system for international speeds, and smoother operability.
Traffic congestion is a significant issue in Germany due to its dense population, central location in Europe and growing use of motor vehicles. According to statistics from the Germany Federal Highway Research Institute, the total number of vehicles in Germany grew by nearly 200 percent between 1970 and 2009, while the country’s highway network (in total kilometers) grew by only 42 percent.
“With our new iPhone app, German motorists no longer need to wait passively for news of a traffic accident to reach them – they can now access this information whenever and wherever they need it,” said Beat the Traffic President & CEO Andre Gueziec. “We’re particularly excited about bringing a new level of traffic technology to European travelers, and look forward to helping people everywhere Beat the Traffic.”
