BMW have announced the availability of Real Time Traffic Information.

The service will offer timely traffic information and dynamic rerouting on the 3, 5, and 6 series passenger cars, as well as the X5 SUV. Unlike other traffic information services that charge a recurring monthly fee, BMW has included RTTI as part of the cost of the navigation system.

There are no activation fees or recurring monthly charges to BMW customers for 4 years.

Up-to-date traffic information is compiled from a variety of sources including FM radio stations, highway-embedded sensors, video monitors on bridges and roadways, and local traffic monitoring centres. Traffic data is then streamed to a dedicated tuner in the car’s radio and transferred directly to the navigation system. So customers can receive traffic updates from a variety of stations, 24 hours a day – even when the radio is turned off.
