Honda Insight to include live traffic updates

SUNA Traffic Channel to be a standard feature on Honda vehicles

Honda Australia announced today that its new Insight VTi-L hybrid car will come with live traffic updates thanks to a partnership with Intelematics Australia.

The live traffic updates will be provided by Intelematics' SUNA Traffic Channel and will be a standard feature as part of the Honda Insight's in-car satellite navigation system.

Honda is one of a handful of automobile manufacturers partnering with Intelematics to deliver a live traffic service, with Ford, Nissan and Toyota also offering the feature.

"This is the first time our in-car satellite navigation systems have included live traffic information", said Stephen Collins, general manager of sales and marketing at Honda Australia.

"Our partnership with Honda further extends SUNA's presence in the in-car satellite navigation market, which has grown dramatically in 2010", said Intelematics Australia CEO Adam Game.

SUNA Traffic Channel is bundled with many in-car GPS devices currently on the market including the Pioneer AVIC-F20BT in-car navigation system. The service provides traffic-related updates including congestion, accident and road work information.

Honda said it plans to introduce SUNA Traffic Channel to other vehicles in the future, but did not provide a timeframe.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
