    Interesting.  Live Search/Live Maps doesn't get the attention or credit it deserves.  Though I'm a Google fan, I find Live Search to be a much crisper GPS tool on my Tilt than Google Maps.

    (btw - just discovered your blog here - nice work).

    I like the idea, but I think this might not work out in the long end. If many users continue to utilize these "alternative" routes that Live Maps gives them, wouldn't the data change in the next few years?

    You also have to consider the fact that these "test" GPS units in the employees' cars are all done with different types of people. Some people like to naturally take it easy and go slow, while some might want to be a speed demon. So do the GPS check with the variation of every driver?

    And what if there's a big accident that occurs on a route, a rather abnormal one where many routes are being congested. ClearFlow won't help.

    It would be great if MS could get "live" up-to-the-minute updates of the traffic congestions going on all roads. Though that would mean finding people willing to let their cars be traffic monitors. But it would be greatly accurate and far better in getting results.
