Acura Debuts AcuraLink(TM) Satellite-Linked Communication System with Industry's First Standard Real Time Traffic Feature at New York International Auto Show

RL Prototype Features Up-To-The-Minute Traffic Info Integrated into Navigation System

New York 04/07/2004 -- The Acura RL Prototype debuted today at the New York International Auto Show equipped with the new AcuraLink Satellite-Based Communications System, which delivers state-of-the art in-vehicle communication and the first North American application of a standard real time traffic information system that puts continuously updated accident, construction and flow (where available) information at the driver's fingertips.

The AcuraLink real time traffic feature is the first to offer personalized traffic information relative to the driver's current location and destination. The frequently updated traffic information is displayed graphically on the RL's navigation system allowing drivers to avoid congestion and minimize drive time.

"Since the average rush hour commuter spends over 50 hours a year sitting in traffic, this system gives RL owners a real advantage on the freeways," said Dick Colliver, executive vice president, sales. "Unlike radio or television traffic reports, the RL's real time traffic system provides a constant flow of relevant information reflecting conditions along a driver's chosen route. It really should save people a lot of time and aggravation."

AcuraLink's real time traffic feature, utilizing the XM NavTraffic service, provides traffic information for freeways in 20 major metropolitan areas including Los Angeles, New York, Detroit and Chicago with coverage slated to expand to other cities as traffic information in those cities becomes available. Flow, accident and construction information is aggregated by NAVTEQ(TM), the leading global provider of digital map data for vehicle navigation systems, from multiple sources including local police and transportation departments. It is then delivered to XM and transmitted by XM's satellites to the RL Prototype's navigation system where it is displayed on the map. Accident and flow information are updated continuously, allowing drivers to avoid congestion en route and pick the fastest path to their destination.

AcuraLink is the first satellite-based telematics system for passenger cars with broadcast capabilities. Utilizing XM(R) Satellite Radio satellites, AcuraLink delivers an assortment of services including maintenance reminders and engine diagnostic information directly to the car. It works seamlessly with the RL Prototype's HandsFreeLink(TM)wireless telephone interface to allow drivers to respond to these services and one-touch-dial Acura dealers, and Acura Roadside Assistance (TLC) assistance using a compatible Bluetooth phone.

AcuraLink will be standard on the 2005 RL when it debuts this fall. The XM NavTraffic service will be offered on a subscription basis for a nominal fee following a free trial period. Exact pricing information will be announced this fall.
