    Yeah, this is why these systems are worthless. Google Maps is the only system that's smart enough and has enough data to be worthwhile. If you can't build an Android based system with the free Google Maps, then allow the user to communicate with the phone. This isn't the 90s anymore.

    Even though Google does have the best traffic reporting in the business, I've still found it to be inaccurate at times. There are instances where it simply doesn't have the most up-to-date data, which can be for a variety of reasons. Traffic reporting systems are great, but you should never trust them completely. If you're driving in an area you're familiar with, it's probably best to combine live traffic data with your own personal experience and common sense.

    Side note: Is there a way to change the pin point on the map from a cheesy truck to an arrow or something? Haha, I like the truck, and even the Navigation system, but that is seriously lame!
