    Steve,

    I have some RDS / TMC links on my site that you may be intrested in - there is also a link to an application for the PC.

    Other sources you could look at are traffic master ( if you could hack the code from the shockwave version from the Vauxhall site ) ancd the same for the www.getmethere.co.uk site... pplease I think AA and RAC do the same ( not that I am a saddo that goes out looking for these things lol ).

    I'm wondering if you could have an overlay of some kind with Destinator witch gives the ablity to change routes if needs be ? That WOULD be cool. Along with GPRS your away...

    I've check out the trafficmaster, I've got a subscription and looked a little before but got nowhere.

    Weel I don't know if you've tried VOICES that SilentAdmirer is developing, but the idea is that VOICES will have this feature built in and adjust it's route accordingly.

    The main data sources I think that are needed now though are outside the UK for Europe and US etc as the only thing better than the current data for the UK would be the TrafficMaster data as well

    It would be nice to have a stand-a-lone version for those not using Mappoint - may be even get Gary to intergate with his Destinator add on prog ?

    Sounds good, the idea is the data will be available for anyone to use in as many formats as is needed.

    I should be done with a source for California today or tommorrow. What I have laid out is two tables in a DB. One table basically has all the zipcodes in CA associated with regions. These regions are the regions that are the closest match for traffic data for each zipcode. So when in Mappoint you would get current zipcode and query this table for the region. Then I have a second table with has region, lat, long, streetname. You retrieve all the streetnames for a region and there lat/long. Then based on the streetname I have a C# function that gets all the current speeds from www.sigalert.com. It is then very easy to add pushpins to Mappoint. Its only one state, but its a big one. When I finish I will give all I have to at least add California to this national traffic DB that is trying to be created.

    Cool, what's the plan? Will it run as a service and upload to a DB, if so I should be able to find a box to run the processing and upload every 5 mins to the web server no probs.

    Been looking at trafficmaster.net earlier (I've got a subscription to it) and looking at the http requests the actual flash/shockwave page makes once it's loaded to get the data.
    Will also be having a look at the Vauxhall version, and see if that gives off more information.
    The basic plan so far from what data I have got back from it is that I might be able to use a server process running mappoint similar to veetid to plot the position based on the description, get the lat/lon and upload it to the web application. Of course this depends on whether the positions are accurate - though a motorway tailback usually slows down for at least a mile and more around so it might not make any difference.
