Sirius Traffic teams up with NAVTEQ
SIRIUS Satellite Radio To Introduce Traffic Data Services

SIRIUS will utilize its nationwide satellite radio broadcast capabilities to provide subscribers with updated traffic information from traffic data provider NAVTEQ . NAVTEQ, the premier provider of mapping and traffic data reporting services, collects and quality tests traffic information from a multitude of sources, including police and emergency services and road sensors, creating a database of traffic-related incident and speed information to help drivers select the best available route.The 22 metro areas that will initially be covered are Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York City, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, San Francisco/Oakland, San Diego, San Jose, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa and Washington D.C. SIRIUS expects to expand the service to over 50 cities by 2007.The first unit to provide the new traffic data service will be the SiriusConnect SIR-ALP10T tuner, which interfaces with Alpine Electronics' new NVE-N872A Satellite Traffic Ready navigation system. This service will keep subscribers informed about potential delays or incidents along the route, including road speed and flow information, unscheduled traffic incidents, and scheduled road closures and road work.
