Trafficent provides instantaneous traffic updates directly to your BlackBerry smartphone. It has an easy navigation map and quick reference drop-down incident list. You can get updates on collisions, construction, road closures, events, traffic flow, traffic volume information, border delays and highway traffic cameras in your area.
Unfortunately, this app can only provide traffic details for Canadian roadways and highways in all major cities including Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Hamilton, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver.
There seems to be a couple issues with this app's usability on certain versions of the BlackBerry. You need to check the supported devices for Trafficent at the BlackBerry App Store, before you download Trafficent to your phone. On a more positive note, this app has pretty good picture quality, it is quite reliable as well as quick in retrieving traffic information.
