HERE has partnered with Honda Canada Inc. and the Broadcaster Traffic Consortium (BTC) to provide the first in-vehicle HD Traffic service in Canada. Honda is the first brand to offer the service to its customers on certain 2015 and 2016 models. HERE HD Traffic allows drivers and passengers to view detailed information on local traffic conditions in real time on their vehicle’s audio display screen. HERE HD Traffic will be available in most areas and expected to expand to additional Canadian markets in the future. HD Radio(TM) technology operates on greater bandwidth, in contrast to the Radio Data System (RDS) standard, allowing more information to be transmitted to the vehicle display screen such as weather reports and nearby fuel price information. HERE HD Traffic enables drivers to view this dynamic information without the vehicle being connected to a wireless network.
