    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    Year : 2006

    Default 2010/2011 CD70 Maps disk has traffic info

    I had the 2010/2011 CD70 map cd hanging around for a couple of months now and finally decided to swap over from my 2009/2010 cd i was using.

    Now i was just expecting newer maps but this new one showed me traffic problems on the roads on my route and directed me around them (everybody elses satnavs were doing the same for them as well though). My unit is flashed with the 2010 firmware since early last year when it was being passed around. However I have never had my CD70 show traffic problems/congestion on screen with grey arrows and warning triangles before.

    Have i just not noticed this before and everybody elses CD70 satnavs already do this or is it a newish feature?

    I am familiar with the Traffic MAster and TMC but not seen this on screen, not that i use it that much.

    I had that on my CD70 Navi even back before I started the firmware update and was still using a 2005 maps disc.

    It's all in the TMC options, so you can choose the things it warns you about, how long any diversions around trouble should be, etc.

    Damn fine thing that instruction manual !

    They stoped it on the newer versions of map discs it was not available on my 2009-2010 disc but worked fine on my 2005-2006 disc even with the firmware updated. Looks like I need to get the 2011 disc then

    Found some info out about the cd70 you may be interested in....

    Format of the map db is Carindb, if you google it, it's used in quite a lot of different sat nav systems.

    also, this looks interesting...

    http://pimp-my-nav.com/index.htm

    allows you to add your own POI's and speed camera locations etc to the Carin database!!

    It seemed to stop working for a while on mine, I've got the 2009/2010 disc and the updated firmware, and it started working again. I don't know if the service has been disrupted with the work on the M1 near me or something but it did re-route me because of bad traffic when I drove to kent the other week.

    Yeah looks like the carindb thing is an older standard for sat-nav, and a lot of manufacturers use it, with their own tweaks i'd imagine!

    Ps, also in Dunstable! (North, near Tesco garge )
