Beat traffic – Real time traffic and live speed updates help you find the best and quickest route to avoid gridlock.
Always be on time – Receive notifications when traffic is slower than usual on your daily commute home or to work. Get reminders one hour before your Meet Up event is set to begin and as your guests arrive.
