Hello, I am planning to buy essential 6 navigation, but I have a question: does it show traffic jams (like the google maps application) when connected to the phone?

    If TomTom knows the traffic jam he will be displayed.
    A faster route is not recommended until it is expected to be faster.
    So it may be that it will lead you into the traffic jam if the detour suggests a longer journey time.

    If you have an Android mobile phone you can try the Go Mobile app from tom tom. It is free for 75km

    Thank you for the information - that is, if you get a cork, say, 5 km away from me on my route, it will be automatically navigated by this cork and will redirect me to another route without traffic jams?
