IntelliOne Selected By Rogers Wireless to Launch Live!Traffic(TM)

    Canada to be First with Nationwide Live Traffic Network

    TORONTO and ATLANTA, Nov. 8 /CNW/ -- IntelliOne, the premier traffic
information company that measures speed instantly on virtually all roadways,
today announced an agreement to provide Rogers Wireless with Live!Traffic and
Mobile Location Services across Canada.
    IntelliOne's breakthrough, patented technology converts ordinary mobile
phone network data into highly accurate traffic congestion information.
Live!Traffic, updated every thirty seconds, will also be made available to
transportation, media, fleet and personal navigation channels.  Mobile
Location Services include:

    -- TrafficAid(R): access to "always-on" traffic advice, personalized to
       each user's commutes, routes and location then delivered through the
       Web and mobile phone.

    -- Student Safety: parents access Web maps showing mobile phone positions
       on demand and automated Text Message alerts to monitor the safety of
       their children.

    -- Mobile Enterprise: available for all business mobile phones or
       devices, historical and current positions of each handset may be
       viewed on Web maps, drivers dynamically re-routed around traffic and
       automated Text Message alerts received for movement outside of
       designated areas.

    "We are pleased to have been selected by Rogers Wireless to deploy our
solutions which will reduce the frustration of driving in traffic," says
IntelliOne's Managing Director for Canada, Bill Tapscott.  "And, with our
platform supporting every mobile phone without the need to upgrade to GPS, we
believe the new service offerings will be very well-received by consumers and
businesses alike."
    A government study released in March, 2006, by Canada's Minister of
Transport, Infrastructure and Communities, showed the costs of traffic
congestion to Canadians in urban areas is between $2.3 and $3.7 billion per
year (in 2002 dollar values).  The report also states this is a conservative
estimate as it did not include non-recurrent congestion caused by random
events such as bad weather, accidents and other incidents.
