Sirius hooks up with NAVTEQ for real-time traffic data


It's a little bit of a me-too move since XM has already offered this to their subscribers since April, but Sirius just announced a few hours ago that they've also linked up with NAVTEQ to deliver real-time traffic data to cars over their satellite radio network. Drivers will be able to get info about stuff like congestion, accidents, road closings, but you'll have to get a new GPS-enabled in-car navigation system to take advantage of the service.
