What's the difference between TomTom's HD Traffic and Lifetime Traffic Updates?
The lifetime traffic updates are normally offered on devices with a combo rds-tmc antenna/car charger. The coverage is limited to highways and main roads and the info is refreshed every 15 minutes.
HD Traffic (now referred to as TomTom Traffic) is included with LIVE devices (those with an imbedded sim card) and the first year is free. Coverage includes all roads -- not just main ones -- and the info is refreshed every 2 minutes. After one year, LIVE Services renewal, including TomTom traffic, is $60/yr.
