Seoul - Real-time traffic updates from Navteq have come to Xroad's turn-by-turn navigation application for iPhones.

Xroad's G-Map U.S and Canada app, available through the iTunes store at $39.99, will be the first turn-by-turn app for iPhones with Navteq's real-time traffic service, delivered via cellular, Navteq said.

The app provides spoken street names, 3D junction view, points-of-interest database, and ability to resume music playback after the app delivers a voice instruction.

NAVTEQ Traffic sends traffic information to maps via wireless to in-vehicle navigation systems, portable navigation devices (PNDs) and cell phones. Information includes road construction, traffic speeds, and accidents in 128 geographic areas covering more than 200 million people in the U.S. and Canada.
