  • May 3 2013: I know Google Now has incorporated one or two of the features you mention here already. It's able to detect traffic patterns and preferable routes etc. but it's focussed on the individual (or more specifically the individual's phone I guess), so an app focussed on the car instead might be waaay better (so an app that runs through the GPS or the car itself would be really awesome)
