Default TeleNav Traffic

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone using the traffic reports with TeleNav? I have it with a Garmin 2730 via XM Radio but find it isn't very accurate. I was wondering if the TeleNav traffic is any good. TIA.

There are only two sources for the traffic data, so I will be surprised if Telenav's traffic is better than any other device.

I guess it's just that it will have traffic too like Google.

I didn't know there were only two providers. Living in the NYC metro area, where I schedule my life around traffic, I'm always looking for a better solution. Going to Manhattan, 15 miles door to door, can typically take 90 minutes if I drive during rush hour.

What would be really cool is if TeleNav, already knowing the GPS information (location, speed) of its users would use that data for traffic conditions.

question is, will it just be static traffic, or will it be dynamic...Dynamic mean, the traffic info will be used and automatically applied to the route preference...
