TomTom to Offer Weather, Fuel Price Info From Intrix
TomTom announced Wednesday that it has reached an agreement with software provider Inrix to include the latter company’s software as part of its TomTom Plus service in the U.S.
The service, when implemented later this year, will put information both about traffic and about fuel prices at nearby filling stations on TomTom devices of those who subscribe to the extra service. TomTom had already said that Inrix, along with Opis, would provide traffic data as part of a new TomTom Fuel Prices Service, to be introduced early this year for $14.95 a year.
Those subscribing need only a GPRS-enabled mobile phone to use either the traffic or fuel prices services; the service will work with GO920 and GO920T products from the company.
