Default Mobileyes Brings Free Traffic Cams to Windows Mobile

Its usefull only if you live in one of the eight areas they support. Oh, and you dont mind seeing an ad for 2 minutes everytime you switch cameras.

Waste of time. GPS does it faster and better.

Not even sure if my area is covered, but I would like it if I could limit it to a couple of different cameras. I don't want to see the entire SF Bay area, only my little section of Hwy 101

I really do not see a practical use for this application. I think it is safe to say that if you are in any large city, there will be a lot of traffic especially before and after normal work hours. They might as well be monitoring the snow flakes in Antarctica. We know there is a lot of snow there, we just want to see it.

I think the only thing this application will do is encourage people to use it while driving so they can see their own car.

Sorry, it is just my opinion.
