Fortunately just today INRIX released INRIX  Traffic for Windows Phone 7. The community-powered traffic app provides up-to-the-minute traffic information of road conditions and incidents along your route and covers USA, Canada and 18 countries in Europe.

INRIX crowd-sources real-time traffic information from over 5 billion data points a month from commercial fleets, in-dash GPS units and consumer devices. Every INRIX Traffic user sends anonymous “GPS speed” data to INRIX servers which intelligently combine the information with billions of real-time speed data points from other drivers in the INRIX Smart Driver Network and road sensor information from Departments of Transportation across the globe.

INRIX’s unique predictive technology analyses commonly known traffic-impacting factors such as current traffic conditions, day of the week, season, holidays and related days, current and forecasted weather, accidents and road construction, as well as other events such as school schedules, sports games and concerts, and even uniquely local variables such as the legislative calendar in Washington, D.C, or the convention schedule in Las Vegas.

INRIX Traffic Features for WP7:

  • Real-time traffic conditions: Quickly view real-time traffic flow maps in cities across 20+ countries; this includes freeways and arterial roadways.
  • View traffic incidents – including construction, accidents, and live police.
  • Local events: Games, concerts, construction and road closures can significantly affect driving times; knowing when and where these happen can help you better plan your route

INRIX Traffic is available for free from the Microsoft App Marketplace for all WP7 devices and is 100% ad-free.
