You may wish to re-write the last sentence in your news item Darren.
Why, that's what I said in the story!
Updates will be provided every 60 seconds to the AA's website.
Whether the AA, or their site, chooses to act on the data and publish it at 60sec intervals is a different matter.
You added the word 'website' to the original press release, the relevant paragraph of which reads,
'Updates are provided every minute ensuring the AA's customers are fully aware of the current road conditions before they start their travel. TomTom HD Traffic provides comprehensive coverage across the UK.'

How can I/we make TomTom understand that these website traffic sites are not a good answer compared with a dedicated PND? When my TomTom Live works, in a single, easy to see thing stuck in my vehicle, it navigates me where I want to go and shouts about traffic problems en route and offers to reroute me around them.
By comparison, I would need to fire up Safari on my iPhone, go to one of the websites, whether TomTom, AA or whomsoever, look at the details, check if any are on my route, worry and think about how to avoid it/them.

Just by the by. In Australia the HD service in New South Wales works very well. I imagine it does in other states. Today I drove from Sydney to Tamworth., about 500 kilometers and on the main freeway north out of Sydney, the F3, an alert popped up on HD traffic that there was an incident about 21ks ahead, nothing serious. Nearly at the same time a traffic report of the radio station I was listening to, had the same info. At the exact spot indicated by HD traffic, a truck had lost some wooden pallets and there was a fair bit of timber pieces on the road, with a road crew trying to clean it up. Can not ask for much better warning service and free for the first year, than tomtom HD traffic.
