XM says its NavTraffic subscribers will be able to access data for six new markets, including three Canadian cities.
It is adding six new markets in the U.S., bringing to total number of markets served to 50, by March 31.
The six new NavTraffic markets include Fresno, Jacksonville, Montreal, Salt Lake City, Toronto and Vancouver. Portland, Ore., now has expanded coverage with traffic flow data available allowing drivers to see how fast the traffic is moving, according to XM.
NavTraffic feeds data on incidents, such as accidents and road construction, to a vehicle’s GPS navigation system via XM’s satellite service. The driver can see blockages on a navigation screen.
The service is available as a factory-installed feature on new models from Acura, Cadillac, Infiniti, Lexus, and Nissan, as well as through aftermarket and handheld units from Alpine, Garmin, Kenwood and Pioneer Electronics.
