May be Nokia’s renewed focus on Here Maps as key revenue generator is already paying off. They have just announced that Here is partnering with “Mitsubishi” one of the biggest auto manufacturer in the world today to provide real-time traffic, weather & fuel price information to the drivers in US. Beneficiary models are Lancer, Lancer Evolution, Lancer Sportback, Outlander and Outlander Sport models.
In the US, HERE has access to information from 100,000 gas stations to help people choose those with the best fuel price. The system also provides weather updates every 30 seconds.
Real-time traffic information from HERE is available on over 330,000 miles of local US roads, which is four times more than comparable products.
All of this information is available to the driver through Mitsubishi Motors’ infotainment system and can be easily accessed by using the controls in the steering wheel or on the viewing touchscreen.
It is certainly great to know that Mitsubishi is joining Honda, Acura, Audi, Garmin, Verizon, Bing, Yahoo! and SiriusXM Satellite Radio as one of Here’s US partners.
