My husband and I just joined the "Droid" world - Keep in mind it is hard to teach an "old" dog new tricks! We use to have VZ Navigator, which my husband used daily because it had a "traffic" section that not only told you there was traffic but told you what was causing it and how long before it cleared up. He is now very frustrated with google maps because it does not do this?? or does it? Is there an app that will take care of this for him?? Another (probably stupid) question - what is rooting and why?? Thank you for whatever help I can get.
