BMW to offer Real Time Traffic Informationby Nick Aziz
BMW today announced the availability of Real Time Traffic Information -- a service that will offer timely traffic information and dynamic rerouting on the 3-,5-, and 6-series passenger cars, and the X5 SUV. Unlike other traffic information servides that charge a recurring monthly fee or require customers to pay for an additional satellite radio service, BMW has included RTTI as part of the cost of the navigation system. BMW's new RTTI service will be available in as many as 44 major metropolitan markets through Clear Channel's Total Traffic Network, Clear Channel Radio's award-winning programming and technology service that delivers Real Time Traffic Information directly to vehicles over its extensive network of FM radio stations. There are no activation fees or recurring monthly charges to BMW customers for 4 years.
