Tomtom plus traffic v TMC

Hi

Before anyone gets over-excited, I did search unsuccessfully for any relevant posts.

I have a average 1.5 hour commute from Southgate North London to Southwark SE1 in a works van every day, will either of these systems work effectively on this type of journey?

Will heavily built up areas and tall buildings severely affect the signals rendering both these systems useless?

Will the delay in relaying congestion - ditto?

Does re-routing actually work in London?

On the face of it the TMC looks better value long term - is it?

Are the messages accurate enough?

Thanks

I can't answer your questions but have similar ones of my own:

I have had TT Traffic for 1 year now along with their cameras. I am definitely not going to renew the camera subscription but any advice on TT Traffic would be appreciated. I access it via GPRS on a TTOV2.

What do you think of the traffic accuracy and update rate? Is it worth me renewing my subscription?
