Real Time Traffic

With Real Time Traffic, the system finds the best route in real time based on reliable traffic information from the expertise of TomTom and its 5-million-strong community of users.

Real Time Traffic is incorporated into the vehicle's central touchscreen and includes the benefits of voice control to ensure your eyes are on the road and hands are on the wheel.

Permanently Connected

If your Citroën is equipped with Citroën Connect Box Emergency and Assistance system (red SOS button in car), it has an inbuilt telematics box meaning all connected services work seamlessly. If your vehicle doesn't have this feature, the live connected services will only work when sharing your compatible smartphone's data connection.

Complete peace of mind

Real Time Traffic assists in planning journeys using real-time information, so that you can spend more time doing the things you love. Real Time Traffic helps you avoid traffic jams, provides fuel prices and suggests where to park: all thanks to live updates.  

These services are delivered directly within your vehicle touchscreen, providing only the information you need and nothing else.  No inconvenient adverts, no pop-ups, no requests to talk to an unknown co-user.  Just the best GPS solutions, in real-time, brought together on your vehicle touchscreen - with configurable setting so you can choose the information on your display. 

Real Time Traffic benefits from TomTom user community information to deliver you the best in-car service, without ever using your data for commercial purposes, so you can be sure you're in safe hands.

The road network is constantly evolving: traffic directions change, pedestrian areas expand and some roads are no longer accessible to cars. To get the most out of your navigation system and get optimal directions, make sure that all data is always correct!
If your vehicle is equipped with "Over-the-air" Map Update you don't have to give a though, it will do the updates automatically - but don't worry, even if it's not you can easily update your maps
Regularly Visit the dedicated section on the Citroën website to check if any update is available for you: enter your VIN, check if there are new updates to download and follow the simple instructions.
Just follow the best route!
