Hi all,

I live in Bay area. I have Garmin 255W and also iphone.

Anything can be done to avoid (particularly 101 hwy) with my current belongings with any subscriptions or any suggestion for better GPS??

My main requirement is:

identify the traffic in little advance and suggest/show me an alternate route to save my time.

Thank you in advance...

You can get a GPS with a traffic assist, which alerts you to road blockages/accidents etc, BUT, have heard that it is not all that good at the moment.

The newest Garmin models such as the 3790T have nüRoute technology with trafficTrends and myTrends

Look for the 37XX models that just came out. This is a new feature on these new models only. Hope this helps.

you can get this, but i dont think traffic assist is developed very well yet in australia like it is in other countries.
google maps at home offer a online live traffic update map....so you can check on peak traffic flows using google maps first.

The Garmin Nuvi 3790T, in Australia, includes "Traffic" assist and provides warnings such as "traffic ahead". When you press the Traffic Icon you can see a list of roads affected by traffic and any roads in the vicinity in which you are travelling are shown in red. This facility is only available in a few of the capital cities eg Sydney, Melbourne etc.

The function of "Traffic" assist in 3790T is proved in Melbourne and works fine quite help.

After being stuck in 23Km of traffic yesterday, and no alerts to it, I would say we have a way to go.

When adding the address to your destination I have found that suggestions are offered for various ways to avoid traffic. Just be sure to regularly update your device as road construction & other delays are typically added. Good luck
