If you have a Pocket PC and GPS, you can now avoid traffic jams!

Mapopolis has announced the immediate availability of ClearRoute, which provides traffic-optimized routing in real time. This is a pretty sweet package. ClearRoute automatically avoids traffic slow-downs and accidents. The public trial covers ten cities: Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Seattle, LA and San Francisco. When the product is released later this month, it will cover the 70 + largest metropolitan areas in the United Sates

It’s really a breakthrough, said Mapopolis Vice President Jeremy Straub, It helps you get there faster without having to listen for traffic updates on the radio and then try to figure out how to get around them.

If you have a Pocket PC, a GPS unit and live in one of the supported cities, get the download to give this a try.

Toshiba e755 review

For its latest Pocket PC, Toshiba simply took a good handheld and made it better — at least when it comes to technology.

It’s also noticeably faster, possibly the fastest handheld we’ve ever used, thanks to its updated Intel processor. And finally, there’s more memory packed into the e755 — a whopping 128 megabtyes in all.
