Volvo, CC Radio extend relationship to traffic info to Canadian users


CC Radio’s Total Traffic Network (CCTTN) announced that it has reached an agreement with Volvo Cars of Canada to provide its real-time traffic info service to Canadian Volvo vehicle owners.  Owners of a 2009 XC90, S40, V50, C70, C30, S80, XC70 and V70 vehicle equipped with a factory-installed navigation system will have access to the traffic information over RDS-TMC (Radio Data System Traffic Message Channel).  Drivers will be better able to plan their drive routes by avoiding road obstructions and reducing unnecessary fuel consumption common to heavy stop-and-go traffic. The service will be provided to Canadian Volvo owners without additional charge.
