Garmin StreetPilot adds Live Traffic Camera integration

Garmin has released an update to its StreetPilot Onboard apps adding several new features including traffic camera support, live weather information and Facebook and SMS sharing. Available as a $10 in-app purchase, photoLive Traffic Cameras is an optional feature in the new version that augments Garmin’s existing traffic monitoring by providing access to real-time photos from traffic cameras across the U.S. and Canada to enable drivers to see traffic and weather conditions at a glance. Over 10,000 traffic cameras are included with photo updates every few minutes and users can also save their favourite cameras for quick one-touch access.

Garmin StreetPilot 2.0 also adds the ability to view live weather conditions and five-day forecasts for the user’s current location and destination and enables quick sharing of points of interest via Facebook or SMS. Additional enhancements include improved searching to get updated results while typing and an integrated POI and speed limit editor to allow users to customize their own points of interest and even add photos of locations. Garmin StreetPilot Onboard is available from the App Store in several region-specific versions: Garmin N. America ($60), Garmin U.S.A. ($50) and Garmin U.K. and Ireland ($75).
