RIM has just announced that they will be releasing an update to their Traffic app over the next 24 hours. The update will bring BlackBerry Traffic up to version 188.8.131.529 and will give users the following features: a choice to select between 2 routes to a destination, as well as a traffic view that displays predicted traffic conditions for each route, the ability to add preset destinations (i.e. office or home), the ability to get an ETA to destinations from within the contacts list, or newly entered addresses, an easy way to share ETAs through SMS, emails, or PIN messages. RIM has also made the app better by analyzing anonymously collected data from users running the app as well as historical traffic data for more accurate ETAs. Look for the update on the BlackBerry App World.
