    The parameters are:

    csz The location from which you want to do your search - as far as I know only cities are supported at the moment. You can provide both a zipcode, a city or an address - all seem to work.
    mag The level of ‘magnification’. 3 = 4 Miles, 4 = 10 Miles, 5 = 40 Miles
    minserv The minimum severity of the traffic condition. 1 = Minor, 2 = Moderate, 4 = Major, 5 = Critical

    RSS is your

    Now who wants to figure out get the maps.

        It does require internet, if you don't have internet it does not get updates

          Yes. But if you're Mini is sleeping in your driveway and you start up AND you have wireless internet connectivity, you ought to be able to get a quick traffic update before you depart.
