Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi, We are developing a mobile application. We want to offer OSM-based car routing in our app. The routing should also take into account live traffic information. Is it better for us to create our own OSM map or to use OSM-based maps solutions that already exists?

I cannot answer the question but like to point out that you are probably looking at at least four different things: 1. a background map (raster or vector) 2. a search/geocoding engine 3. a routing engine 4. turn-by-turn navigation All of these can be developed or used from third parties (almost) independently.
