INRIX and Samsung Continue Collaboration On Mobile Applications For The Connected Car

INRIX Real-Time Traffic and Travel Time Information Fuels New Apps and Services on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge

INRIX announced ongoing collaboration with Samsung on driving-related apps and services now includes the new Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge smartphones.

“Together with Samsung we’re transforming how millions of drivers navigate their world,” said INRIX President and CEO Bryan Mistele.

“We look forward to extending to S6 owners the time and money-saving benefits Note owners have come to expect from INRIX on their mobile devices.”

INRIX real-time traffic and travel time insight powers several apps and services designed to help Galaxy S6 owners save time, fuel and avoid frustration every day including:

  • “Car Mode.” By downloading and installing Car Mode on their device, consumers can set their S6 to automatically switch to a driver friendly user interface that uses voice controls and larger, crisper fonts and button sizes to make it easier to get up-to-the-minute traffic information, place and receive calls, listen to messages and play music on the road. Car mode provides real-time traffic maps showing the best routes, travel times and ETAs to home and work. Continuously monitoring conditions on the driver’s route throughout their journey, car mode also provides voice alerts to drivers about accidents and other incidents in enough time to avoid delays as well as access to real-time insight into the closest available off-street parking and least expensive place to refuel.
  • “My Places” Widget. Samsung’s My Places widget provides Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge owners with ‘glance and go’ insight into the best route, travel time and ETA from their current location to home and to work.

INRIX is at the forefront of connecting drivers and their cars to smarter cities. INRIX’s real-time traffic information and driver services are on the road today from a variety of automakers including Audi, BMW, Ford, Mercedes, Volkswagen and Toyota. These services help drivers do everything from navigate through the day’s traffic to find the closest, least expensive fuel or available parking and EV charging locations. In the public sector, more than 60 transportation agencies worldwide use INRIX traffic information and analytics tools to help streamline daily operations, to pinpoint investments in roads and transit, and to deliver better traveler information services.
