Unfortunately, in this case, the Nuvi could not give me any detour options – there weren’t any ! I knew about the slowdown well in advance, but unfortunately thought everything would be cleaned up before I got there – wrong !
The Garmin live traffic information is excellent. On numerous occasions it reports traffic much sooner than the local news / advertising station with their traffic reports every ten minutes. Sometimes you can’t wait ten minutes !
Looking at my vehicle tracking (below) with my Bluefox GPS Tracker you can see the slowdown where the reporting points are much closer together. If you are a fleet owner, you won’t be questioning why your driver took longer than normal to arrive – you’ll have the facts right in front of you, near real time.
