    Navigation & Traffic

    Hello all,

    I am posting this information, not as a question, nor a complaint. I have had my Galaxy Nexus for close to 3 months now and it is my first jump to a Droid Phone.

    What I wanted to say is, how absolutely impressed I am with the Navigation app (with the traffic feature). Just this morning, on my way to work, I hit some pretty bad traffic. So, for the hell of it, I figured I would fire up the navigation app to see how far along the traffic was backed up (wasnt quite asure if the navigation had the traffic feature or not)

    So, once launched, I saw the red line (assuming that for as far as the red line stretched, was as far as the traffic was backed up), and, Honestly, I was blown away by how accurate this was.

    The red line stretched around a bend in the highway, and, right where it turned back to green, was almost exactly where the traffic started to move once again. (I hope my explenation of this is making sense)

    So , my question is, how does the android know this information? I am not too familiar with the inner workings of the GPS, so, I am quite amazed on how awesome this feature is.

    Does anyone know how my droid phone knew when the traffic was going to loosen up?
