Nokia launches real-time traffic update on Maps for Delhi and Mumbai

Nokia today released live traffic update service for its Symbian and Lumia Windows Phone smartphones. The service can be activated by updating the map application. The service is currently available for Delhi and Mumbai and Nokia claims it has covered 1,500 km of roads across these two cities. Nokia will be launching this service in other cities too but has not given any list of cities or timeline.

While this is a much needed service, we are not sure about its accuracy. Nokia tracks traffic situation by monitoring other Nokia users who are using location services on their phones at any given time, called “probes” in navigation industry. We will be testing this service and will post the review soon.

    We have live traffic info in 26 countries now including India too, with Delhi and Mumbai.
    This live traffic info is available on maps.nokia.com and on Nokia Drive for Symbian. While a traffic layer is available on Nokia Maps for Nokia Lumia, we are still working on including live traffic updates to Nokia Drive for Nokia Lumia. This is a nice video of how the service will look like on Nokia Lumia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbINz5ZhcNU Quite awesome ;-)
