Re: traffic information, how exclude ?
Get a complete real-time traffic overview before you even set off. So you always set off on your smartest route option.
There are many ways to get
traffic information. The internet, Teletext, TV, radio. But the
information you get from all these services shares some basic problems:
• The best traffic information always at your fingertips A
plug & go service that works straight out of the box. No hassles,
no external antennae. Just turn on your device for a live connection to
the TomTom Traffic centre.
• Gives you 5 x more traffic updates Every
three minutes the traffic information is updated and sent through to
your TomTom. 24 hours a day. That's 5 times more often than any other
traffic information service.
• Covers 10 x more roads Including all highways and N-roads.
• Pre-trip information At
home or work, get a complete real-time traffic overview before you even
set off. So you always set off on your smartest route option.
• Smart traffic info on the go Stay
informed and in control when you're on the road. With 3-minute
real-time traffic updates. Giving you the smartest route every time.
• The most accurate travel-and arrival times HD
Traffic information is LIVE and real-time which means you always take
the smartest route and you know exactly what your travel- and arrival
times will be.
• Trustworthy, up-to-date traffic information from revolutionary sources
AVOID UNNECESSARY DELAYS
BE BETTER INFORMED
HAVE PEACE OF MIND
SPEND LESS TIME IN TRAFFIC
HD Traffic uses a revolutionary new source of traffic information: the
mobile phones of people traveling in their cars. From this anonymous
data TomTom knows exactly where, in which direction and at what speed
all these mobile phone users are traveling throughout the UK
& Dutch road network. This real-time data is combined with other
available traffic information services, resulting into a much more
complete and more trustworthy traffic information.

You don't set these buttons. The traffic button scans Radio Data Service (RDS) information from radio stations near you for Traffic information. The Info button changes what RDS information is displayed for the current station.
The numbered preset buttons are the only buttons on the radio you can program. Too program a preset, tune the station desired and hold the numbered preset button down until you hear a beep.
Nothing wrongs, in my early days I was a police man for a few years before I got married, and wife made me retire as of fear ofvsomething happening. The only time your radar will trigger around a police car, is if he has it on, button depressed or constantly on. Most the time they won't have it on like me unless I am sitting looking for violators. WHY? Two reason, wheres down battery on radar gun and annoying beeps on the radar gun for the officer. A lot of times we are just sitting in a traffic area doing reports, and look up and then for odvious speeder, just by us being parked on the road doing nothing, makes are presence known, and automatically has traffic slow down. Hope this helps, and don't speed to much :) mike
It is possible for them to monitor voip calls, if your call passes through their network, or they do remote monitoring on network traffic. The voip traffic is only data that needs to be 'reassembled' to hear the voice stream. However, this is more difficult if the traffic is encrypted between the phone and the call manager or whatever they are using.
I am no legal person, but I am sure that you would have to have agreed to have your calls monitored for them to be able to do this.
MostRDS radios can receive short messages which might include informationabout the presenter, station or programme you are listening to. Forexample, BBC Radio 1's RadioTEXT always gives information about thepresenter and programme e.g. JOHN PEEL - TONIGHT IN SESSION.. ETC.., whereas Classic FM gives information which includes a web address for the station, e.g. CLASSIC FM ON THE WEB - WWW.CLASSICFM.COM.The information will usually scroll across the display on a home tuner,but this could be distracting to a driver in a car, so the RadioTEXTmessage in a car hi-fi does not scroll.
Theradio display can show if the station broadcasts travel information.Since most stations do anyway, this feature by itself is of limitedvalue. The Traffic Announcement (TA) feature allows interruption of aCD or cassette tape when there is a travel report from the radiostation that is currently tuned-in. The radio will automatically switchfrom CD or tape to the radio for the duration of the travelannouncement. Commercial radio stations willbroadcast three tones or 'bleeps' before and after the travel bulletin,but BBC radio stations do not need this. These DTMF tones are used whenthe transmitter (where the RDS inserter physically is) is locatedremotely from the studio, and for reasons of cost or practicality thereis no control path from the studio to the transmitter to tell thetransmitter when to switch on the TA flag. The only link from studio totransmitter is the station audio itself. Inthese situations, "in-band signalling" is used. A unit at thetransmitter site listens out for the DTMF tones in order to switch theTA flag on and off. The DTMF tones are recorded on the traffic jinglesto make life easier for the presenter. For the TA feature to work underany circumstances, however, the function marked TA, TI, TP or 'Traffic'must be switched on. It is possible to search out only those stations broadcasting the Traffic Programme on some radios.
If you have activated traffic information priority and tune into a station
that does not offer traffic reports, you will hear a warning beep every
30 seconds. Please tune into a station offering traffic information with
seek tuning, for example, or switch the TA function off.
