TomTom adds live video to LBS Platform

TomTom has added live video footage from TrafficLand’s network of over 13,000 roadside traffic cameras to its Location Based Services (LBS). The addition of the TrafficLand Traffic Camera API (Application Programming Interface) will allow developers to add live video footage of actual traffic situations in the USA, UK and Canada to their cell phone or internet applications, giving their end users an improved and more relevant experience. TomTom’s advanced cloud-based LBS Platform allows developers easy access to high-class map content and software services. The platform provides developers with everything they need to create location-enabled applications for consumer, enterprise and governmental markets. The LBS Platform also offers a Global Geocoder internet service for batch and online geocoding in 52 countries worldwide.
TrafficLand provides live traffic camera video feeds that cover over 200 cities. The company has redistribution agreements with over 50 Departments of Transportation (DOTs), making it the largest authorized aggregator of real-time traffic footage in the USA. “We are honored to be one of the first third-party content layers offered by TomTom,” said Lawrence Nelson, CEO of TrafficLand. “This partnership brings value to both of our companies, giving TomTom developers easy access to a highly reliable video resource and by expanding delivery of our own video content into the market.” Dan Adams, vice president of geospatial solutions and LBS at TomTom, commented, “We enable web-based access to high-quality location content worldwide and TrafficLand is an exciting addition to our portfolio. We enable customers to implement any type of location content for tailored, quick and simple solutions. The addition of TrafficLand’s live video feed creates a brand new dimension f

Mediamobile includes TomTom traffic data to boost Germany's first Digital Radio traffic service

Mediamobile includes TomTom traffic data to boost Germany's first Digital Radio traffic service

Stuttgart, June 17th, 2013: Today Mediamobile announced the signing of a new partnership agreement with TomTom, one of the world’s leading suppliers of navigation products and services. Under the agreement, TomTom will provide the company’s highly accurate traffic content to Mediamobile, and thus contribute to the first nationwide traffic service to be broadcast over Germany’s digital radio network: Mediamobile’s V-Traffic Premium DAB.
The V-Traffic service is regarded as an important milestone in establishing digital radio as a new traffic data delivery channel for the automotive and consumer electronics industries in Germany and Europe.

Now German motorists can look forward to receiving traffic information over a data channel with 400 times the capacity of traditional RDS-TMC services. The information is transmitted directly to motorists’ navigation or infotainment systems, helping them travel smarter, save fuel and drive safely. The service is offered on a lifetime basis – a value-for-money proposition with no additional subscription or connection costs on top of the initial fee included in the equipment purchase price. “The partnership with TomTom brings us the best digital traffic content available in Germany and allows Mediamobile to offer a premium service to German drivers through the latest DAB digital broadcast technology,” explained Andrew Nash, European Sales Director, Mediamobile.

“We are very pleased to provide Mediamobile with our highly accurate TomTom Traffic information. Our partnership sets a new standard for traffic information in the German market,” added Ralf-Peter Schäfer, Vice President Traffic Product Unit & Fellow at TomTom. “It also enables us to broaden the reach of our world-class TomTom Traffic content even further.”

DAB technology – bringing high-quality services to the general public

Mediamobile’s state-of-the-art V-Traffic Premium DAB traffic service is broadcast live over Germany’s DAB network using the TPEG* protocol. The service has two key components: Traffic Alerts (TEC) informs drivers of events such as accidents, road closures and roadworks, and Traffic Flow Information (TFP) provides accurate vehicle travel speed information covering 190,000 kilometres of Germany’s major roads.
The V-Traffic Premium DAB service takes full advantage of the highest quality data available from TomTom. Mediamobile traffic experts analyse the content from TomTom and other providers, then process and quality-check the data to create the best possible traffic service. More content and services will be added to Mediamobile’s German DAB offering in the near future.
V-Traffic Premium DAB benefits from a data capacity 400 times greater than traditional RDS-TMC services, delivering information-rich content equivalent to that of connected traffic services on mobile networks. For motorists, this means richer, more accurate traffic information. The service reports more traffic events, identifies new types of events, and is capable of pinpointing events to within 100 metres. This enables drivers to prepare their journeys more efficiently, finding the best routes based on traffic conditions and estimating arrival times much more precisely.
DAB+ digital broadcast technology offers a number of advantages, including the ability to carry very large amounts of information fast and reliably – and without network saturation issues – to millions of vehicles simultaneously. This means Mediamobile can offer a premium lifetime** service to end-users that does not require additional subscription, connection or roaming charges.
Mediamobile’s traffic information will be broadcast in Germany by sister company Media Broadcast, and will reach more than 73% of the country’s major roads by the end of 2013.

Mediamobile to launch DAB traffic services across Europe

Mediamobile’s recent entry into the German market is part of a broader strategy. Not only does the company plan to offer the best service at the national level, Mediamobile is also planning to provide a reliable pan-European service to automotive and equipment manufacturers, as well as aftermarket suppliers.
Mediamobile’s ambition is to be at the forefront of the technology shift from analogue (RDS-TMC) to digital radio (DAB-TPEG). The company already broadcasts DAB services in Norway, is running test services in Poland, and plans to launch V-Traffic DAB services in other European countries. Mediamobile also supports partners in Benelux, Italy and the UK with the aim of offering the most comprehensive traffic service offering in Europe.
Meet Mediamobile at Telematics Update’s Content and Apps for Automotive Europe, 18-19 June in Munich, where Andrew Nash, Mediamobile’s European Sales Director, will be speaking.

First Garmin Head-up Display (HUD) Reviews Hit the Web (Video)

Garmin HUD 3
Just a few weeks after we announced the new Garmin head-up display (HUD) for smartphone navigation apps1, the first media reviews are out. Publications such as CNET, GigaOm and TUAW have put the device through its paces and written up reviews. "It was a pleasure driving with the Garmin HUD...After I got used to it, driving without the HUD felt a bit naked and unsafe," wrote Mel Martin from TUAW.
Make sure to check out the full reviews to learn more. If you're interested in seeing the HUD in action, we also recommend watching the CNET video below on how to install and use the device.
HUD is an innovative new way of viewing navigation information in the car, projecting crisp and bright directions onto a transparent film on the windshield or an attached reflector lens. By providing comprehensive road guidance at a glance and right within the driver’s line of sight, HUD can help increase safety and reduce driver distraction. HUD is available for pre-order now on Garmin.com. You can save $20 ($129.99 instead of $149.99) if you order before August 18, 2013.


1 Purchase required. Compatible with Garmin StreetPilot Onboard or NAVIGON navigation apps.
