When I started the car yesterday after work, I was greeted by a message that there is a traffic jam on the way home, asking if I wanted it to calculate an alternative route.
The navigation system had no active route, and traffic information was switched off!
On one hand warnings like this are welcome, but on the other hand it leaves you wondering what kind of profiling and data collection goes on behind the scenes. Especially, I would be curious to know if the car triggered the warning by itself, or if it was pushed form a data centre.
