Toyota Belgium to Use DAB for Traffic

Toyota announced today that all of their Land Cruiser V8, Grand Prius+ Lounge version, Prius Solar Premium version cars sold in Belgium will receive traffic information through Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB).

The traffic data is powered by Belgium-based traffic information provider be-mobile and is using the RTBF DAB network in French-speaking Belgium and the VRT DAB network in Flanders.

Cedric Van Rossum, Senior Manager for Toyota Belgium, said: “teaming up with be-mobile has enabled us to offer next-generation traffic mobility data directly to our in-built car navigation systems. Available as standard in Land Cruiser V8, Grand Prius+ Lounge version and Prius Solar Premium versions sold in Belgium, be-mobile’s service enables safer, cleaner, and more fuel efficient journeys for all of our customers.”

Toyota already rolled out a similar service in the United Kingdom in February this year (read more here) using ITIS/INRIX data.
