    Default XM live traffic on NAV?

    Members don't see this ad
    Anyone have this feature added to their Genesis? Testing a Lacross CXL, this feature was really neat. The test drive route took us on a highway and the NAV beeped and showed a traffic jam 4 miles ahead. I exited early and paralelled the 4 mile traffic jam without delay. This was cool. Just saw where the Genesis allows for this XM upgrade. Have not heard of anyone with it yet.

    In my limited experience, XM traffic is useless. On one recent trip, Nav failed to warn me three times about accidents/construction ahead until I was already trapped in the traffic jam. If their data is not updated in a timely fashion they can't warn you of trouble ahead. I think this is a not ready for prime time offering.
    Before you criticize somebody, walk a mile in his shoes. Then when you criticize him you'll be a mile away and you'll have his shoes.

    It did that for me when I set a destination into the navigation. when it is just on map view it does not tell me in advance where the traffic is.

    Really? My limited one time experience had me thinking this was amazing!!! How much is it to dd the XM live traffic? I already have a XM account for sat radio. Paying $10/mth I think.

    Nothing LIVE about XM traffic- in fact in most cases- it is dead.
    Thanks for reminding me- gonna call for an extreme discount- it never shows [email protected]!

    I have it in my car, and I love it.

    1. In order for "Geraldine" to talk to me about a traffic jam, I must have a destination set. Otherwise ..... (see below)

    2. When the "Traffic" Icon in the upper left corner of screen is lighted, and you push down on the DIS Knob, then push "Nav Traffic", it shows you where there is a delay, or an accident, etc. BTW, this has nothing to do with number 3 below.

    3. If your area of the State you are in gives information to XM, you will see Green, Yellow or Red (GYR) lines along the roads on your map, showing that traffic is Light (G), Medium (Y) or Heavy (R).

    2 and 3 above do NOT need the Navi destination to be set.

    2 and 3 above are completly independent from each other. That is, you could have one, (either one) and not the other on your screen.

    There are more areas that carry the Traffic icon (2) than the GYR lines (3).
    On my various trips, I often drive in areas where the GYR lines don't show up, due to the local areas not informing XM. Sometimes, when I have no GYR lines, but am getting close to a State Line, such as when I am driving South on I-95 in Georgia, and getting close to Florida, I will not have the lines in Georgia, but I see that once I get into Florida, I will have them.

    Lastly, the GYR lines only show up when you have the map screen set to less the 4 miles. Screen set to more than 4 miles will not show the lines. That distance (4 miles) shown on the upper left icon means that the distance indicated by the little line under the number, is the distance of shown. (4 mile, 2 mile, 1 mile, .5 mile, .25 mile, 700 feet, 300 feet). It does NOT mean the distance to the edge of the screen.

    Ctrcbob,
    Great expanation of Nav traffic on the Genesis. I am a heavy Nav user and traffic user when available. One small addition, I use both the XM traffic reports for Metro areas that have a dedicated XM station and the Map information when I am in congested metro areas. In my opinion only, the Map info is great graphically but weak on updates and does not address many areas even in the metro of Baltimore / Washington. In Feb of 2010, I had to renew my annual subscription and considered not renewing the traffic portion but I did at a cost that XM would not reduce the traffic portion (listed cost). They did reduce the radio subscription since I found web pages that advertised discounts for the radio service. There are web pages available on the net with better traffic if you prefer to use your smartphone or laptop.

    Brilliant insight. Thanks for the detailed explanation how to make best use of the system. My driving will take me into another state with a 2.5hr drive on the interstate every other week. This is where I see myself using the XM traffic.

    I am starting another post on the NAV and audible commands....trying to find out how effective the Genesis system is. Like any software, a lot of NAV's and interface software is obsolete as fast as they come out. The new "My Ford" and/or "My Lincoln" just jumped ahead of all manufacturers. My last Hyundai salesperson could not get any commands to work and had no idea how to use the knob for anything. Having been so pleased with the rest of the car, the NAV and interface is my last research. Look for new thread on this.

    I found this video link about Fords "Sync" which has been improved already with My Ford or My Lincoln. Found this interesting as it's in a car w/o a NAV screen.

    XM Traffic is worthless on the Genesis.
