Hope this isn't too far off topic.

I have been using Trafficmaster Oracle - Freeway - Q-Busta for about 14 years now.

In that time I have got used to how they work and how to interpret the data/warnings.

For about 6 weeks now the 'transmitter' on the M25 at junction 11, I reckon, has been out of order.

I've reported it to Trafficmaster who have allegedly sent out an engineer who reckons it's OK and it may be the way they now work that is the issue.

Normally, when approaching a road that is covered, the unit will spring into life and the LED will go green for no problems or red and give a spoken warning of any problems.

Since late January my Q-Busta unit is not activating until I have joined the motorway and I'm almost at junction 12.

In the mornings at junction 3 of the M4 the unit springs into life, as normal, before I join the motorway.

According to Trafficmaster, the new transmitters now only transmit if there is a problem.

Unable to check this at the moment as the M25 has been unusually quiet of late so junction 11 has been fairly clear.
