    I was wondering how long it would take also. I started getting the updates about 2 days ago. It would tell me approx how long it takes to get to work, and then on the way home how long it should take. It was a good 10-12 days of traking before the info came along.

    To me it depends on how often you drive the same route. Looks like it works from repetition.

    I just noticed my first traffic notification today. It was letting me know how long it would take to get to work and now it is letting me know how long it will take to get home. Hopefully it picks up on some of my other regular weekly stops. I like this feature in Google now and I am hopping that Apple will be as good if not better.

    Ya just make sure all settings are on and history is never cleared or it will have to relearn.

    The only thing i would like/chage would be the ability to remove certian places. For example if I travel to a location and would not be returning, i would liek to remove it form the history list. It is more than likely just me being a little OCD about having a long list of locations.

    It's pretty much a set it and forget it. Ya it stores the other locations. But this helps in the long run. Wether you return or not. Yes it would be easy to delete or remove from the menu rather then deleting the whole list.

    Think of it as your personal database that goes with you all the time.

    It took 3 weeks, but I finally have my first traffic notification.
    Not sure why it took so long.
    I wonder if it has something to do with how many other iPhone users in your area also use this feature?
    More users would mean more data.
    Or, are my routes and travel times logged and then averaged?
    I'm guessing the former, or it wouldn't have taken this long to finally get one.
    Also, I live in Canada, and iPhone market share here is lower than in USA, which would mean less aggregate data to work with, therefore more time required to give a travel estimate.
    .
    .
    .
    Now for those who've been getting them for a week or two:

    How accurate are the drive times?

    I got my first one this morning as well! It was quite accurate, within a couple of minutes. We'll see if I get a going home notification and how accurate that is, with traffic being what it is then.

    Mine was reasonably accurate.
    I arrived 5 minutes sooner than its estimate, probably because it's Thanksgiving weekend up here, so traffic was lighter than normal this morning.

    I use Apple Maps exclusively.

    Has Trapster had any major updates?
    I used it over a year ago, but found reporting things while driving took my eyes off the road more than I was comfortable with.

    Yes they made it a little easier to post traps by map movement and also switched to Here as they map source and some bug fixes for iOS 7

    It's true posting traps on the fly is difficult so the movement of the Map lets you get to a safe place then your able to drop the trap accurately after your stopped

    It took me 2-3 weeks to get my first notification. Also, make sure to have your home address saved under your contact name, that helps with getting it started.

    Could be!

    Also having your address under your contact name enables Siri to use Apple Maps to help you in many ways

    In fact the more info you put in your contact the more intelligent answers you will get from Siri related to you

    Well, the good news is actually got return information at the office once I had been there a while, AND it said traffic was unusually heavy at that time of day! But its time estimate was off by a factor of two. It only added 5 minutes to the trip time, where it was more like 25 minutes. We'll see if that improves.
