It’s great to see more services and features on standard mobile phones; don’t get me wrong, I love my Smartphone, but why should I have all the fun? Google just rolled out a version of Google Maps for mobile phones and this app now includes integrated live traffic data in 30 U.S. cities. I’ve used real-time traffic services in the past and they can be a real time saver. Typically my local radio stations get me the traffic data after it’s too late to adjust my route.
If you have a Java-enabled (J2ME) mobile phone, just point your browser to the Google Maps beta page and download the application. Just make sure you pull over first; I don’t want you to be the next reported accident on Google Maps with Traffic!
