I'm still waiting for v8.x for my 910, so still get unusable delay times with TMC, BUT, I went to Paris yesterday, and I noticed specific, realistic times for traffic delays for the first time. when I looked in more detail I saw it was receiving information from 107.7, which is the dedicated autoroute traffic service. I've never seen this station on TT before. My last few trips have been at night, so I haven't had any traffic problems, and so I've no idea when this started. When I got back to the UK, it was back to normal with stupid delay times for nonexistant problems.

I understood the problem before v8 was TT's interpretation of the info, so has anybody any idea why it suddenly worked this time?

The delay time issue is UK-specific, that's why it works properly on the continental mainland.

With all due respect, that's not my experience, other than this occasion with 107.7, delay times in France are comparable with the UK. My record was a 27 hour delay (or something like that) between Calais and Paris when most of the gantries were warning of high winds. I've also had a 10hour delay on a rural autoroute, maybe the A79, for non existant roadworks, 15km queing traffic at 3am!!!
