These navigation enhancements provide the most accurate, intuitive and safe navigation experience available today in a moving vehicle.
INRIX is at the forefront of connecting cars to smarter cities. Powering connected car services for companies like Audi, BMW, Ford and Toyota, INRIX delivers insight that helps drivers always know the better way to go. These services help drivers do everything from navigate through their daily traffic, find the closest least expensive fuel, and available parking.
Adds support for multiple DNX head units on the same account.
Ratings and Reviews
A little annoying.
It would be nice if this app would truely “connect automatically” what it really does is it constantly asks you for permission to connect. When you get near your car(not even in it yet), when you connect carplay(eachtime and if you have a bad cable like I did it was every 30 seconds), and so forth. At first it was a minor inconvenience but now it’s kind of annoying. Please fix this issue. The app is nice for the trial but since Waze, google maps, and other stuff is available for free I don’t think I will be subscribing after my 2 years are up.
Stupidest programming ever
This thing will come alive to notify when iPhone is connected to your head unit, interrupting whatever you’re doing or listening to—navigating, phone call, podcast. It overrides itself to demand an answer whether to connect. If you grant permission, the full app comes up to show connected, then sits there on the screen and doesn’t recede. You must intervene to go back to what you were doing. Apparently didn’t occur to whoever coded this to make permission sticky; to include an opt-out on the notification, or to have it recede once it informs you it’s connected. At least half the time it won’t register after you give it permission, so you have to go through the routine again. When that happens I kill the app. No good anyway, can’t recall getting useful information on my 994S. Stupid stupid stupid.
I have to have this app for traffic updates on the KENWOOD. It never connects automatically. Always interrupts everything else to ask to connect. If you hit ignore, it keeps asking over and over until you hit connect. Then HAS to switch you to the kenwood app for you to push connect. Annoying. Has connect automatically in the settings but that’s never worked. Also to use this app, I have to disable CarPlay? Bs
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
