New Data coming to Auckland Traffic

Last night we’ve submitted a 1.9 update to Auckland Traffic Free, hoping that this will be our last update before Mango arrives to NZ Windows Phones. Today, however, we’ve received update from New Zealand Transport Authority which states that service that provides our apps with traffic camera information will be updated on 2nd of September 2011 to also include extra data, including traffic cameras for:

  • Hamilton
  • Central North Island
  • Wellington
  • Christchurch
  • Dunedin

We are testing impact of these changes to existing versions, but according to preliminary results existing versions of Auckland Traffic should, on 2nd of September, load without problems, but scrolling the map to any of the places listed above will give you access to those cameras as well.

We are also considering renaming the “Auckland Traffic” to “NZ Traffic”.
