Espoo, Finland - Oct 7, 2013 - Nokia's business unit HERE announced that Mitsubishi Motors North America has launched HERE Traffic including real-time information on traffic and weather, and is the first to offer updates on fuel prices delivered by HD Radio for drivers in the U.S.
The service goes beyond the usual highway network, providing information on four times more roads than comparable products. By using HD Radio, updates on real-time conditions delivered to the driver are ten times faster than the standard speed available in the market. Connected services from HERE provide up-to-date, real-time data, whether the driver is looking to avoid traffic jams and unsafe driving conditions due to weather or just looking for a gas station offering the best fuel prices. More than 330,000 miles of local roads now have real-time traffic information, and fresh weather updates are received every 30 seconds. All of this information is available through Mitsubishi Motors' infotainment system and can be easily accessed by using the controls in the steering wheel or on the viewing touchscreen.
The new offering will be available for the following Mitsubishi 2014 models: Lancer, Lancer Evolution, Lancer Sportback, Outlander, and Outlander Sport.
