No, I was indeed speaking about data that is a few minutes (/hours/days)
old. I was not aware of ROMA and it seems to be exactly what I

There is no need to get test-data for development, map-downloads by
or for navigation-systems and anything that does not require editing
of the most recent state to cause load on a central api-server.
