Sorry for all the bad grammer in advance - been a long day and I'm off to bed ...
I'll make it simple ( cos I am ).. in the UK I know of two web pages you can go straght two... would it not be good if you could access them on the move - espcialy as the two I am thinking of would word great in a touch screen enviroment.
Both are free and do not require any logons although a seprate host page would be advisable and easy to make.. any way I digress.
As both of them are shock wave IE is only required as such.. so if some one could produce a programe where by you can run an external prog and display certain pages and may be even cycle though one or two then we could have an easy travel logon ( and not just for the UK ).
You would need a refresh button to force it to check for new info but also a stop dial button just in case like me you pay expensive dial up charges ( GPRS or not ).
I spose it could be further enhanced later ( may be the vew depends on start up vairables ) to do simple control web browsing for touch screens ?
Any way - though I'd off that one up to you lot
PS: Confused hope you don't mind me borrwing your screen dump
Scuse the quality.. its just to give an idea as to what I am saying above

I've got somewhere, should hopefully have an app in the next hour, just got to get the dial/disconnect buttons code done, the web bits work
nice, shame your can't zoom in more on the traffic master one.
I did actually contact Trafficmaster to see if they could or would be doing a product that would plug into a PC and provide traffic updates, but they said they have no plans for it. which is a shame, coz I think if you could get one of their devices plugged in and with your GPS it would give some great info.

The app is finished, be posting again in 5
Been busy this lunch time...
At the moment only connects to the two sites terran suggested, but it adjusts accordingly to make sure they look OK on screen.
The connect/disconnect buttons are to be used with your default internet connection. I couldn't test these as my machine at work is on a lan so anyone with a dial-up connection handy, please test.
Oh almost forget..

Includes full VB source and icons etc - the gif files are need for the app, to use fun the EXE
Update on the traffic master bit
they have a device and service that does the satNav traffic routing vehicle tracking, but it's quite expensive.
