Last week I drove from Cambridge to Harrogate on the A1. I was using my old TomTom Go (original).
There were large roadworks at the Wetherby exit from the A1 and the slip road was closed. Diversion signs sent you about another 10 miles up the road before you could exit.
I did the same trip again this weekend, but with my new TomTom Go 720T. Using the RDS lead, my trip showed three instances of roadworks, (which have been on for months), but there was no mention of the large scale disruption at Wetherby. My TomTom still wanted to exit on the slip road that was firmly shut.
Have I wasted my money by having a T on the end? Rolling Eyes

Probably wasted your money at the moment.
Hopefully the system will develop into something a bit more reliable.

For the present time, take any delay warning with a large pinch of salt mate Cool

Problem is at the moment, a bit like crying WOLF. you never know if the delay is real.... so when there is a real one.... you'll curse like mad for ignoring the TMC...... you can't win.
