HDD Sat Nav - Traffic Event detour

Does anyone have much luck with this feature.

For me, if I am close to the traffic issue and ask for a detour, it recalculates and it's new route is exactly the same as the old one.

The way home the other day I came accross police turning cars back, the road was closed, I wasn't using the sat nav so set destination to home and when it found the road closure told it to detour but it wanted to take me straight through it.

Only had the option once and it did change to a different route.

It worked for me with the few times I needed it.
Stuck on the A303 due to a bad accident about 5 miles further on.
It took me and about 6 cars following me around the houses a bit, but it got us all about 2 miles in front of the crash.

I've used a few times and as above, for me it provided another route when I opted for that.

Worked for me yesterday. 6 mile tailback on A1 going north finishing just before M18 turning. Saw the queue hit the detour button and whilst up the sliproad i got new directions straight through Donny.
