I reckon if TomTom goes for the standard RDS traffic receiver solution as opposed to their HD(GSM) product, it can be cheaper.

Didn't Nokia SA talk about live traffic services last year sometime? I wonder what's the progress on that

Noob question...

How does the data get updated on the non-cellphone devices?... via GPRS, RDS or what?
My car radio always had the TA/TP settings for traffic alerts, so does this mean we will have this facility available now?

TomTom might be the most expensive, but I found it to be the most accurate.

The TP/TA setting in cars radios works like this: A radio station sends out a certain action ping on all frequencies and that activates on your radio which wil make it switch to the sending radio station frequency so that you can listen to a traffic update which is only for a big accident or something like that.

The only station that I know that does this is Classic FM.
