Google Maps Navigation Features Real-Time Traffic Rerouting

March 8th, 2011 at 5:24 am

It does not take a genius to tell that Google Maps Navigation app is gearing up to give in-car GPS devices a run for their money. Now, the latest update in the Android app features traffic rerouting capability, which is currently in beta.

Users can now access traffic rerouting information for both North America and Europe, which Google collected from current and historical data, so they know which highway to avoid due to slow vehicle movement of if an accident occurred in the area.

Again, this only applies to Android devices.
