MapQuest teams up with INRIX for Traffic-Enabled Navigation Solutions
MapQuest and INRIX today announced a collaboration that will allow consumers and businesses to access the full breadth of INRIX traffic information across multiple MapQuest business units including MapQuest.com, MapQuest Wireless, and MapQuest Platform Services.

“Our extensive customer research shows that traffic is one of the most requested features from our users,” said Christian Dwyer, SVP and GM of MapQuest. “After evaluating alternatives we decided to incorporate INRIX traffic across multiple MapQuest offerings to provide the best coverage and highest accuracy for trip planning and navigation.”

INRIX traffic is currently available to mobile consumers via MapQuest Navigator 5.0, the newest version of MapQuest’s voice-guided, GPS-enabled wireless application launched in November 2007. Additional MapQuest implementations are planned throughout 2008.

MapQuest has also made available a toolbar featuring one-click access to real-time traffic information, automatically updated every five minutes. Users who download the new toolbar will have instant access to the features they rely on from MapQuest.com, including finding places, directions and gas prices, no matter what site they’re browsing.
