I regularly travel through several countries to my destinations. (i.e. France, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Germany, to get to Switzerland). Is it true traffic update only happen as you enter each country, very annoying to take a route that on entering a country to find a huge traffic problem you could have avoided 50 km earlier while still in the previous country.
