MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- An update for Google Maps provides new and improved traffic alerts. According to company officials, the enriched app will offer warnings of congestion and suggest alternate routes.

Google Maps has had "traffic conditions" for sometime, but now it actively processes live traffic data to estimate how long a delay will be and provide explanations for alternate routes.

Automatically activated when a driver enters a destination into the program, new feature might prove to be a welcome tool to vending route personnel.
