FM Traffic Button
As per the source, the FM Traffic Button provides traffic reports for US markets updated every few minutes. The system, enabled by code added to an embedded app on the in-vehicle infotainment system and accessed by a button on its user interface, offers real-time audio traffic updates.
Up-to-date traffic information is relayed in the vehicle at the push of a button, and OEMs can share revenue generated through ad-sponsored traffic reports. This sponsored advertising could finally provide significant recurring revenue opportunities for OEMs through AM/FM radio.
