If I need to connect to phone for traffic, why not just use phone as GPS?

Very disappointed that the GO Comfort gets traffic info from my cellphone. Why not just use my phone as a GPS instead? Also read all the terrible reviews for the MyDrive app and decided not to install it. Very disappointed in TomTom right now.

    Hi
    @jdsnaker
    Welcome to the site....
    Here in Europe the Tomtom Live Devices use a 2G SIM Card....
    The US use a different phone system and as far as I'm aware US Tomtom devices have their own dedicated app for Live Traffic....

    OK, let me try a different way. Does the TomTom GO Comfort have to be connected to a cellphone through the MyDrive app in order to receive live traffic information?
