Cruising Costco in Azusa on my weekly load up of supplies I spotted this little gizmo tucked away in a corner. Its’ the Traffic Gauge mobile traffic alert system. With a suggested retail of $80 the Costco price is quite the deal!
They even have a nifty desktop or cell phone companion that’s downloadable. Trafficgauge according to their official web site is tied into the whole caltrans RIITS so your data is accurate to within a few minutes.
The graphics aren’t perfect and don’t drill down to the smallest of segments that you can get via your desktop. The graphics are workable and if you are the kind who likes to spend his technology money on the really big toys this may be your ticket. What the hell…if its stolen out of your car at least you aren’t out a chunk of money like you would be with a nifty GPS unit that tracks the traffic and places you with pinpoint accuracy.
