December 2011 - My V-Trafic for Windows Phone: traffic and weather information always at hand

Mediamobile, provider of the V-Trafic range of traffic information services, has launched My V-Trafic, a free traffic application, enriched by Météo France weather forecasts, for Windows Phone 7. 5.

‘My V-Trafic’ will enable motorists to find out about traffic conditions in just a few clicks – and in real time. Having this kind of accurate information saves both time and fuel, and helps drivers to reach their destination with a minimum of hassle.

Application key features include:

  • Colour-coded traffic speed indicators (green, orange, red and black) enabling users to choose a congestion-free route.
  • Traffic incident information including accidents, road works and road closures. Knowing the cause of congestion helps motorists anticipate better.
  • Detailed Météo-France forecasts for over 1,000 French cities.  In just one click, weather forecasts for the next half day and the next three days can be viewed. By checking My V-Trafic before they set off, users can take any unfavourable weather ahead into account.
  • Quick access to maps covering the whole of France - over 320,000 km of motorways, trunk roads and secondary roads. Drivers can check traffic conditions detail, using an extremely accurate zoom-in feature.
  • Easy search using the Bing Maps search engine. For instance, by just typing in ‘Sacre Coeur, Paris’, My V-Trafic shows traffic conditions in the neighbourhood.
  • Favourites at your fingertips. Save a map of a town or district and pin it to the home screen using Live Tile. The total length of congestions and the number of accidents in the area are displayed directly.

 

Community-sourced data for better accuracy

Mediamobile, the developer of the My V-Trafic app, collects and processes data from over 70 official traffic information sources nationwide. Their reliability is further enhanced by anonymously analysing the movements of users of the app, plus those of over 1,200,000 private and professional vehicles fitted with GPS systems, thus allowing driving conditions to be updated in real time.

 

Availability

The My V-Trafic app is available in French, free of charge, from Microsoft Marketplace.  To find out more and download the app, visit http://www.v-trafic.com/myvtrafic/windowsphone/index.html
