    Yep I've done that for it - some are right, some are very wrong! Not sure whether they are in the wrong lat/lon format, apparently there are diferent ones apart from WGS84 and radial calcuations etc but I know nothing about the calculations etc

    Route66 data

    Heres an example of how the Route 66 data is right for some and wrong for others. the first example is right, the second is hundreds of miles out!

    Any ideas?

    The "wrong" one has the decimal point in the wrong place for the lon. There's only 5 digits so -5.1655 should be -0.51655 :-)

    That would be real nice. However, i've looked online for this stuff before and wasnt able to find anything that would give me a feed that i can interpret, such as xml,etc. Toronto uses a system called COMPASS, they do provide camera pictures and some information about area's that have problems on their page which is updated using some sort off a ghetto way. If you look at their source code for their site you can see where they use a programm to replace the code with new chunk every whatever minutes.

    Once nice thing is the flow charts for 2 major highways:

    If anyone knows any other feeds for this area, please let me know heh.
