Beat the traffic with a new smartphone app

Traffic: whether you’re travelling to work or setting off on holiday, it’s never a great way to start a journey. That’s why we’re giving our seal of approval to a brand new mobile app designed to help you beat the queues!

The AA has joined forces with satellite navigation system manufacturer TomTom to launch Roadwatch Pro, an application for your smartphone that warns you of congestion on your usual routes.

All you need to do is select the start and end destinations, as you would if you were programming your sat nav for directions. The application will warn you if there is currently any problems with traffic along your planned route, allowing you to change the course of your journey and avoid this congestion.

The AA Roadwatch Pro application is available now on iTunes at a cost of £1.99.

For those of you planning a caravan or motorhome break in the near future, make sure traffic’s your only concern by renewing your caravan insurance or motorhome insurance policy before you set off.
