iTunes Link: RAC Traffic
The RAC Traffic app uses the iPhone 3G's GPS or WiFi location services to determine your position and keep you up to date with any traffic jams or incidents that may delay your journey.
The RAC app overlays real-time traffic information on Google Maps to pinpoint trouble spots in the form of colour-coded dots. Touch a dot to bring up details of the incident, including delay times, and average speeds.
Alternatively, the All Incidents tab brings up a list of all the problems in your area. Touch on the text and it shows you where it is on the Google Map, including the start and end point of the disruption.
Traffic information from further afield is also available via the Regions pull-down menu.
We found the RAC Traffic app easy to use and packed full of information to help motorists avoid that sinking feeling that strikes when you see the motorway traffic ahead of you slowing to a complete halt. Simple to use and free make it a must-have app for motorists.
