    I did my 3rd factory reset on my sgs2 after I clearing the call storage data still results in contact list failure cor.process.android thing. Now after I got everything back, I noticed this traffic light widget which I can't detect in the app manager or the uninstaller. The widget shows a traffic light with green colour. When you click it, it tells you to name the widget and put in a destination. No idea what this is. Here is a screenshot.

    It's from google maps if you tap it or add the widget does it have something like widget name, destination then save?
    There was another thread about it but can't find it right now. I noticed it after the latest google maps update
    I guess it's for letting you know how much traffic or whatever is on the way to the destination you put in

    Yes. You have widget name, destination and save. Nothing else. It was not there previously even though I have google maps. Mind you the application destination does not work that well

    I take it back. That traffic widget is one powerful app. No need to download traveline app. Just search method of transport. Only problem it only has car, bus and walk routes. Hopefully will add more options like train or boat/plane in future.
