Radio stations in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver and other additional markets will soon be competing with XM to provide traffic information to listeners.
XM Satellite Radio said its NavTraffic service is adding nine markets in the first quarter of the year, bringing the total number to 31.
The service provides real-time traffic information about each market, though those channels can be heard anywhere in the U.S. Subscribers pay $3.99 a month on top of the XM subscription of $12.95.
The new markets are Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver-Boulder, Milwaukee-Racine, Portland, Providence-Warwick-Pawtucket, Sacramento, San Antonio and Wilmington, Del.
NavTraffic is a feature of 2006 Acura RL vehicles and will be available on the 2007 Acura RDX.
General Motors offers NavTraffic as a feature for 2006 Cadillac CTS models equipped with on-board navigation systems. This year, Infiniti will introduce the service.
NavTraffic is also available aftermarket navigation systems. Garmin recently introduced the StreetPilot 2730, a portable navigation device that features XM NavTraffic as well as XM Weather and XM Satellite Radio. Partners such as Pioneer Electronics and Alpine also offer XM NavTraffic-compatible systems.
