Auckland Traffic 1.4 provides real time maps with the following information:
- 200+ road sensor sites and 30+ traffic information signs in Auckland covering SH1, SH16 and SH20
- TREIS road events for all state highways in New Zealand including both current and planned events (delays / cautions / warnings / road closures)
- 100+ traffic cameras covering Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Wairoua, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin
Road sensors, traffic signs, traffic events and traffic cameras are integrated into 4 new map views (standard / satellite / hybrid / terrain) which can be easily scrolled and zoomed. In the new map views you can also show and follow your location.
Tap the light / dark (day / night) button (bottom left) to change and adjust the brightness of the new maps.
On the new maps each road sensor site changes colour and width to highlight traffic flow (colour) and congestion (width).
Green = Fast / Free Flowing, bigger = Potential Congestion
Orange = Reduced Speed, bigger = Moderate Congestion
Red = Slow, bigger = Heavy Congestion
Black = Crawl, bigger = Congested
Tap on the road sensor sites (light gray dot) to show the average speed, % speed of posted speed limit and age of the last estimate.
When traffic sign information is available an orange or red alert icon will appear indicating the direction of travel. Tap on the icon to view the message displayed on the traffic sign. Tap again to hide.
Road sensor sites and traffic signs fade over time as they become out of date.
When traffic events such as delays, cautions, warnings (!) or road closures (-) are available an orange or red alert icon will appear at the location of the event. Tap on the icon to view the event information. Tap again to hide. Use night mode to easily see scheduled events in the next 7 days.
