Traffic update for GPS

And talking about TomTom, the LA Times ran an article a while ago about TomTom Go (the hardware) under the nice driving conditions of the area. Sounds like the product isn't quite there yet.

PocketGPSWorld published a review of TomTom Go last year.

But if you want to check the traffic in the Bay Area, here you can get up-to-date traffic conditions and speed average on the major highways.

Open Tom

A curious aspect about TomTom is that it runs Linux and to comply with the GPL rules it makes its source code available. There is even an Open Source project, Open Tom that is providing builds for use with the device.
