This week in GPS — September 7th, 2013

TomTom's new traffic jam ahead warning

TomTom’s new traffic jam ahead warning

This week in GPS is a weekly link roundup of (mostly) GPS related odds and ends, from GPS Tracklog and other places around the Web. To get a few of the biggest stories as they break, follow me on Twitter. This week’s lead image (above) is about how TomTom Traffic now alerts drivers to slow down when approaching a traffic jam. Anyone know if it’s available in the US yet?

In a last min addition, the zumo 390LM will receive a FREE SW update within the next month that will give it the ability to act as a remote for the NEW VIRB action camera. Now you can mount the camera anywhere on the bike and control the start/stop and take still 16mp images right from your zumo.
