Google launches mobile traffic maps for mobiles

Former search company, Google, on Tuesday announced it has begun offering US mobile users “live” traffic data.

Google Maps for Mobile, part of a slew of new products aimed at the desktop and mobile user, will allow users to chose a destination and show traffic in that area, live.

Traffic data is sent to the mobile with road conditions colour coded to represent different conditions: red for congested, yellow for slow traffic and green for clear roads. US users can access the new service at http://google.com/gmm.

Google said in a statement that it is offering comprehensive data on traffic conditions in more than 30 metropolitan areas in America.
