AAA Enhances Mobile Navigation Program
AAA has announced the latest version of its wireless navigation program - AAA Mobile - with several new features including fuel prices, live traffic alerts and weather forecasts.
"Advanced technologies such as AAA Mobile make access to AAA's trusted route guidance, restaurant and lodging information and member roadside services now more convenient than ever," said Marshall L. Doney, vice president, AAA Automotive. "The new features of AAA Mobile help motorists address two of their greatest concerns -- fuel prices and traffic congestion - - by allowing them to quickly obtain prices at several gas stations and providing live traffic alerts with alternative navigation routes."
With fuel prices a worry for many motorists, AAA noted, mobile users can find the best prices by receiving a list of gas stations with prices nearest to their current location or in a specified zip code or city. Once they find a station, AAA Mobile will provide audible turn-by-turn directions on how to get there, the company said.
In addition to offering turn-by-turn audible directions with on-screen maps, according to the company, AAA Mobile continues to provide users with AAA's travel expertise in their wireless phone with AAA TourBook travel guide information, including complete listings of AAA Diamond Rated restaurants and lodgings and points of interests. AAA Mobile also offers listings for ATMs, more than 100,000 Show Your Card & Save merchants, AAA Approved Auto Repair facilities, AAA branch offices and other types of businesses.
