Honda Insight to include live traffic updates

SUNA Traffic Channel to be a standard feature on Honda vehicles

Honda Australia announced today that its new Insight VTi-L hybrid car will come with live traffic updates thanks to a partnership with Intelematics Australia.

The live traffic updates will be provided by Intelematics' SUNA Traffic Channel and will be a standard feature as part of the Honda Insight's in-car satellite navigation system.

Honda is one of a handful of automobile manufacturers partnering with Intelematics to deliver a live traffic service, with Ford, Nissan and Toyota also offering the feature.

"This is the first time our in-car satellite navigation systems have included live traffic information", said Stephen Collins, general manager of sales and marketing at Honda Australia.

"Our partnership with Honda further extends SUNA's presence in the in-car satellite navigation market, which has grown dramatically in 2010", said Intelematics Australia CEO Adam Game.

SUNA Traffic Channel is bundled with many in-car GPS devices currently on the market including the Pioneer AVIC-F20BT in-car navigation system. The service provides traffic-related updates including congestion, accident and road work information.

Honda said it plans to introduce SUNA Traffic Channel to other vehicles in the future, but did not provide a timeframe.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
