Anyone have XM Traffic in 8.4a system?

My first post here... Just purchased a 2015 GC Altitude and purchased the $600 optional Nav package. I called XM to add the $4 Traffic option, but they're saying it's not possible. Is there anyone who has the Uconnect 8.4a system, added the nav option, and can get XM Traffic?

Thanks for the help.

I went through this exact same thing a couple months ago when I bought my altitude. Sirius added the traffic to my package but I could never get it to work. I called multiple times and had them resend the signal. Finally after the fifth time they said there was something wrong with my radio and to bring it to the dealer. The dealer told me the radio was not compatible with the Xmas traffic and even called xm for confirmation while I was there. It blows my mind that XM would even add it, and bill me for it knowing the radio isn't compatible.

I am pretty sure the SRT has the 8.4AN radio, which is different the 8.4A which is in the altitude. The AN is compatible with the traffic.

I've got the XM Traffic on my '14 Overland. I've had it 2.5 years and it's worked just fine.

Traffic is n. a. on Altitude as Altitude is a Laredo variation. Sorry.
