    i just noticed sideroad flow on plus traffic. it was only one road but this is definitely new. they must be getting either the expanded inrix or live traffic. im out shopping now but i'l look into this more when im home

    funny - this only happenned once, and I never saw it again. LIVE traffic on routes.tomtom.com still shows far more coverage than my device's PLUS traffic.

    Since Trafficcast gets a per-740-device-sale commission to provide its feed to LIVE traffic, I'm pretty confident that without some type of licensing change, PLUS traffic won't get Trafficcast data (which has been the primary source of sideroad coverage).

    Based on this PLUS sidestreet flow, perhaps PLUS traffic can get the detail from the 740 and WORK model probes. Maybe this one time there were enough probes on the street (eg: a sales conference from a WORK customer just getting out), and that's why there was enough data to show flow.
