Hi I just posted this somewhere else but I think is better here.

I have a c550 and just updated my GTM 20 firmware and the unit keeps performing perfectly as indicated above. Too bad here in Canada (only Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal) we only get updates (including Slow Traffic events) from Mon-FRi 5 am to 8 pm but in the weekends it still show the old construction events.

In regards of the Flow Info we (c550) get (Slow Traffic events) but most of them are only a 1 minute Delay. With last Nuvi 6xx firmware it seems that now those unit show Delay Times higher than 1 minute. The same happens with the TomTom units here in Toronto , only 1 munite delays. On my unit a have seen a few 4 or 5 minute and just a few more but iot is always a combination of 2 or more events. Here, Tomtom uses the same provider (TTN from Clear Channel) as Garmin does.

My question for you UK users is Are you getting ONLY 1 MINUTE DELAYS when using RDS-TMC either Trafficmaster or ITIS? and also How about the Tomtom Plus Traffic via GPRS , Does it show only 1 minute delays as well. We do not get Tomtom Plus Traffic service here in Canada (only road conditions but no traffic events) yet but in US it seems to show the actual delay times accurately.

Thanks

All delays reported by my TT TMC are only 1 minute. Obviously a bug but I don;t know at whose end
