Garmin with MSN Direct

I LOVE it! I put all my destinations in with live maps, pushed it to my Garmin. When I got into the car, all the destinations were there, ready to go. I received a little message that there is some traffic along the way with a 5 minute delay to be expected...

I LOVE it! Got the 885t and I swap it between the Jeep and the Ford. I love the fact that it keeps up with movies, stocks, flight information... I'm in my free trials now on both cars, but I definitely think I will will renew and pay the subscription. It's definitely worth it for people who do a lot of road trupping in their cars...

Yep, there now. In Chattanooga using GoToMyPC (which I also love). Traffic was good. Watch for the popo, though. I saw 5 state troopers within 25 miles of the city line.

Did you ever use the FM traffic? Just wondering how it compares.

Does msn direct work in rural areas too, or only urban/metropolitan regions?

I know that FM only works in major cities.

It works in major cities only, but it seems to download information beyond what the maps say on the MSN Direct website... I never used the FM traffic on the Garman, but with my old TomTom, it didn't seem to work as well as the MSN does.

Speaking of traffic, what's the deal with 20/shales parkway intersection. I see the construction barricades there, but both lanes still open in both directions (or were when I passed through on tuesday)?
