Is it only for the UK or does it work in the USA as well?

not sure about a demo version

I don't know if there is a demo version or not, but I use the roads quite a bit so I thought I'd give it a go, and it seems to work really well

which impressed me as I never thought it would work

What does it use, GPRS? If so how much data does it take to get the information?

yes uses GPRS

I've been connecting with GPRS , and it's minimal data really, especially when you compare it to emailing or using the browser.

Won't work outside of UK

This only works in the UK, as it uses the TrafficMaster network of monitoring cameras. It works a treat for UK roads though!

Better than 1740

I've just bought a copy, as I use the 1740 service alot, but this software is so much better with its graphical display. What cool software D

Traffic-i and the SyncStation

Just noticed that if you connect the phone to the syncstation you can use Traffic-i without incurring any GPRS charges !

So cool, don't do much traveling anymore, but its just one of those got to have utilities for posing

I will use it though, I used to have a traffic master, and the annual license was 100 so 39.99 is a bargain, and no extra box on my dashboard.

I just feel sorry for the guys who are not uk based, cause you can't use it.

I also bought it - I asked them if they had a demo version and they don't at the moment - this is because of some third party or something. Anyway they said if you buy the full version and aren't satisfied you get a full refund.

I bought it and then found it wasn't letting me connect to the network. Reported it to them on Thursday night. By Friday at 10:00am they had fixed the problem, and emailed me a later version of the program. Works fine now.

How I use it is just to check before I start a journey to see if there is anywhere I should avoid. It's excellent for that.

When this is combined with proper route planning it will be the dogs bollox.

I bought a copy too. For 39.99, it is really a bargain. With my ipaq tomtom GPS system, it is really a dream to drive on Monday morning.

Traffic-i - useful for people using the motorways

This is so much better than the 1740 service that i used to use. I used to travel down the M6 every day and had to listen on 1740 to the traffic going the otherway first before I found out the conditions going my way.

Now I just have a quick look and see what it's like straight away, no more waiting. (and it's not 60p a minute)
