BARCELONA, Spain, March 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile World Congress 2015 -- INRIX®, Inc. announced ongoing collaboration with Samsung on driving-related apps and services now includes the new Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones.
"Together with Samsung we're transforming how millions of drivers navigate their world," said INRIX President and CEO Bryan Mistele. "We look forward to extending to S6 owners the time and money-saving benefits Note owners have come to expect from INRIX on their mobile devices."
INRIX real-time traffic and travel time insight powers several apps and services designed to help Galaxy S6 owners save time, fuel and avoid frustration every day including:
- "Car Mode." By downloading and installing Car Mode on their device, consumers can set their S6 to automatically switch to a driver friendly user interface that uses voice controls and larger, crisper fonts and button sizes to make it easier to get up-to-the-minute traffic information, place and receive calls, listen to messages and play music on the road. Car mode provides real-time traffic maps showing the best routes, travel times and ETAs to home and work. Continuously monitoring conditions on the driver's route throughout their journey, car mode also provides voice alerts to drivers about accidents and other incidents in enough time to avoid delays as well as access to real-time insight into the closest available off-street parking and least expensive place to refuel.
- "My Places" Widget. Samsung's My Places widget provides Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge owners with 'glance and go' insight into the best route, travel time and ETA from their current location to home and to work.
