    I am very close to buying TomTom Nav5 (or maybe even a TomTom GO 300), and strictly want it for the Plus traffic service. I live in LA and live on the freeways. Can anyone who is testing TT traffic give me your thoughts AND post some screenshots??? I have not been able to see anything that shows what TT traffic info looks like (it's not on the TomTom site), and really need to see some pics before buying.
    Also, even though TomTom says it only works on GPRS, have heard it is working on Sprint T650's. Can anyone else confirm this?
    Thanks in advance!!!!!!

    I realize this is not the answer to your question, but just discovered this on another forum; use it for my Samsung i600, but it is available for Treo as well:

    Hands down, by far and away the best traffic program I've used, very fast, maps, a ton of cameras, great UI. Says it covers LA, you can download a free trial and the program is only $10.

    Just downloaded the trial version of TrafficEdge. Seems to work well. I had been accessing the Sigalert pages directly on the web but TrafficEdge does a better job of formatting and switching between cameras & maps. Unfortunately, not all the available cameras are implemented yet in the SFBay area.

    jrfaris, do you know what the little numbers on the "Traffic Map" mean?

    I believe the format varies with area. In SFBay they use the sigalert system which has little green, yellow & red diamonds indicating speed. It seems that TrafficEdge just re-formats the local internet traffic information system for use on compact devices.

    were you using the sigalert wap web page? I think it's still the best, and the fastest. You can have predefined routes that it lists out the exits and the current speeds. It will even sms you accidents or when traffic slows down to a certain speed on your route (i do my route to work).

    You can also just quickly look at a certain freeway and again it lists all the exits and speeds. you don't have to decipher dots and colors on the small screen.
