For those who want an app with real-time traffic updates and extra features.

Check out the route your preferred navigation app is giving you, and see if there are any traffic congestions on the way. Intix Traffic is updated regularly, but it's not as accurate as Google Maps, so I'd say skip it for now.

Please note that since iPod touch and iPad (WiFi only) do not have built-in GPS-receivers, an external GPS-receiver is required.
