IQ routes on the Go720


I just got the latest Maps (830.2284) and Firmware (8.351) loaded onto my GO720 and I see that I now have IQ routes. This is why I like the Tom Tom over the Garmin, you get new features without fleecing your bank account.

I have not tried to used it yet but I'm wondering if anyone else has, and how they've found it. Since theres no documentation in the 720 manual for this, can someone tell me if I have to have my cell phone "data connected" to get IQ routes to work properly?
