BMW introduces traffic jam busting sat nav

BMW drivers can now benefit from Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) when they specify a Professional grade navigation system.

The system shows drivers the flow of the traffic on the route and the roads surrounding it so they can use the quietest roads and avoid congestion.

Users can also access the RTTI system from the BMW Routes website from internet enabled devices and computers.

The RTTI information is updated every three minutes via an inbuilt mobile phone sim-card, meaning regular and more accurate updates than with radio based Traffic Message Channel (TMC) updates.

When a traffic problem is detected on route the system intelligently selects options that don’t head into heavier traffic and gives drivers a few options so they can select the route best suited to them.

The system covers major UK roads and motorways and road networks in Europe. It’s available now.
