Suna traffic reporting is now live in Canberra. This is a system where info about traffic problems is broadcast directly to your SatNav device which then automatically diverts you around the problem.
Apparently the addition of Canberra brings Suna’s nationwide coverage to over 12,500km of Australian roads, and covers all main Australian cities.
However, if NewsRadio traffic reports are anything to go by, I don’t expect there will be much value for the average commuter. Canberra is lucky to rate a problem in the traffic report more than once a month. And I’d like to see how SatNav will divert you around a problem on the Parkway, Majura Road or the Monaro Highway – “At your earliest opportunity make a u-turn”
