The article focuses on the traffic navigation services in the U.S. that use location-based services (LBS). TeleNav integrates traffic into navigation, and it makes rerouting available so consumers can find the next best route if their usual route is congested. TeleNav has turned to Inrix which uses a Global Positioning System (GPS) vehicle probe network to aggregate traffic from various government departments of transportation. Other traffic data suppliers include AirSage and 3rd Dimension.
