#N9Hacks: Enable Traffic in Nokia Drive

| August 15, 2012 | 19 Replies

I’ve been using this for the last month thanks to my friend Arie ( @EverythingN9 ). I wanted to bring this to you guys earlier, but the method to install the patch was rather involved for the everyday user. I’ve recently learned that N9 Quick Tweak (N9QT) has this option as part of it’s extensive list of tweaks and mods.

This is what has lead me to bring it to your attention. To install N9QT, you will need developer mode active (Settings > Security> Dev. Mode) and also third party installations (Settings>App.>Intall.). The file can be downloaded from here. Simply click the link on your N9, and open it from the Transfer UI.

I have made the assumption that the cities supported by Traffic are the same cities supported in Nokia Drive 3.0. The patch also enables Automatic/Day/Night colouring for Drive.

      Not sure, haven’t used it around the CBD. Where I live it doesn’t get it, but I live in a semi-rural area

      The development team was most likely told to stop and work on WP. We’ve heard a few times that some from dev team from MeeGo were first inside Nokia to make WP versions of their apps. Most likely this team was told to stop Traffic on MeeGo and put it on WP.

      *Entirely my own speculation*
