TomTom HD Traffic

Post by SparkyDave on Wed Mar 03, 2010 8:17 am

Anyone use it and how do they find it?

For me, at times it's a Godsend, but at others it infuriates me. It seems to be about 50% accurate and will tell me there's traffic where there is none and vice versa. It even sometimes directs me away from traffic onto an apparently clear route, only to find..... traffic delays.

I appreciate some roads won't have the facility to monitor traffic and TomTom will get all their info from a 3rd party, but I'd hoped for a bit more accuracy.

I've never used that one bud, but there has to be somthing in what you are saying as the BMW one was awesome for redirecting and it always got me there withough any hassle!! i would assume they all use the same 3rd party scratch

Well i have Tom tom Traffic.......not live.....but just the additional arerial.......to be honest.....it is handy but not reliable.......i would say that it is more like 30 % accurate....... in my experience.......London/South east and East.......but still better than nothing.... scratch

Funny thing is i understand that they work on the 'TRAFFIC MASTER' SYSTEM ......and they are normally pretty good....... scratch
