From reading the traffic SDK it seems theyre only able to do direct to routing.

Thanks for the reply Randy. I thought so too , but just wasn't sure. It does explain why I see more oncoming traffic when flying GPS direct than when I fly on the airways.John Maane

IIRC the AI fly great circle routes between airports, but when they get "in range" (IIRC 80-100 nm) they are funneled into "entry points" based on incoming direction and from there routed to the duty runway, depending on visibility (<3 nm and they only take ILS route).scott s..
