    Is it just me or does this program just give you a fancier way of looking at information which is available for free for $4.99 a month?

    The graphics are nice and its user friendly but I'm in L.A. and I can get this info for free at a number of websites already.

    None of your websites have New York traffic. Does the Traffic program have New York.

    Palm.com is down right now.

    Edit: wait, for you talking about this one?

    edit2: It doesn't work because my T-Zone needs proxy. I would pay for it monthly if it works on TomTom.

    Finally something that's worth to use!

    However I can't get it to contact the server neither but my datat service is working fine... maybe the Palm's issue? I'll try again later tonight.

    EDIT: It seems like it's not even READY. Neither the "Traffic Server" nor the purchase server on Palm Central is ready. Hmmm it looks like they need to get things ready before they put them up to the public lol.

    Woah! Easy there...you mean you want Palm to release something for sale AFTER it's ready to perform as described?

    Man, the nerve of some people....

    Hmm maybe it's my issue here, it seems like it can't contact "Traffic Service" everytime I start it... I did checked my data connection and it's work but it just won't contact the "Traffic Service".

    LOL I think I was too excited since I do need something like this especially in SoCal... I'll keep trying, wish me luck lol.

    I see this as a great program, the fact of paying for it by a recurring monthly fee is what gets me. I think they do this monthly plan things so if they have to raise fees they can easily do it midway. Another substitute is to use verichat premium, which has a traffic bot which will give you the traffic in many cities for no monthly fees. $60/year for something you can get on the internet for free doesn't make sense.

    Washington DC traffic for me just won't work. Every other city works fine.

    These suck. All they tell you is if there are MAJOR accidents or planned construction, not real time traffic speeds on metropolitan freeways.

    Does this remind anyone of something?
    Traffic

    I really hope Palm can be more of an innovator more then a duplicator, wait is the this from the old palm, or palmsource, or palmone, or handspring oh wait its just Palm what was I thinking

    This program sucks big time. Who would want to pay $5 a month for it.

    I don't think this program will do any good for people who live in the la-la land perticularly. The freeways here are always jammed during the rush hour unless there is a miracle.

    Further, its only allowed me to connect once here in L.A. in 5 days. They claim to have coverage issues on Cingular in L.A. and they aren't kidding.

    The program is essentially worthless. Good luck selling it!

    I've had the program for about a week and can connect for DC traffic without a problem. The problem is that the information is pretty useless. Most of the time it shows no alerts, even when I am stuck in heavy traffic on a major road. The one location it does show alerts for is well known for heavy traffic. I might have justified $5 month if it provided useful information, but given the total lack of useful information I consider it throwing money away.

    I come across this website, traffic.com, it has New York traffic and it really works.

    What you do is to create an account first. And the create your "driving route", it will tell you route to route how bad the traffic is. *And you can book mark the personalized drive!* I am trying it on the Treo now, it works so far.

    If you make a "drive" that goes around all the major neightborhood highways, you can create a single bookmark that tells you the traffic condition of all the nearby highways and decide which one to take. You just need to force refresh the page.

    I don't care about the 4.95 a month upgrade, since it can only send your phone the traffic report every day, not when you want it. I rather they just create a wap site for the paid users.


    There is also an alternative from MSN auto report

    But I am so satisfy with traffic.com I will stick with it for a while.
