Clear Channel's Total Traffic Network said its real-time traffic data is now available on the Kenwood KNA G510 navigation unit.
The network provides live, local traffic information in 125 metros in the U.S., Mexico and New Zealand, using its own reporters, traffic cameras, helicopters and airplanes.
"Our Real Time Traffic service adds daily relevance to navigation, increasing the desire for navigation on even well-known routes," said Jeff Littlejohn, executive VP for distribution development at Clear Channel Radio.
Kenwood's KNA G510 is an aftermarket product that the company says is compatible with most automobile models.
Clear Channel says it is the first U.S. radio broadcaster to use RDS-TMC technology to transmit real-time data to portable devices, Internet sites and in-car navigation systems.
Data messages are received and decoded by a TMC-equipped car radio or navigation system or posted online. Messages arrive continuously and are displayed immediately.
The Clear Channel Total Traffic Network launched last year at CES with the AudioVox navigation system. Applications using the traffic reports include Nextel, Verizon SMS, Tom Tom Navigator GPS, MSN Autos, MapPoint, QPass/Rand McNally, Weatherbug, SPOT, Yahoo!, Siemens VDO, AudioVox, Garmin and Cobra.
