Canadian NAV

Not sure if this has been posted here or not, but my NAV sometimes will display when traffic is heavy or construction zones. Meaning that, it was doing it than stopped. Is this a bug in the system or...?
Have any other Canadian owners seen this?

Thanks!

Re: Canadian NAV

I've seen this as well, very sporadic. I actually think, could be seriously wrong here, that it has something to do with what info it picks up from the various satellites. And when we get traffic info it's off a US service sat. The US UConnect and Nav is fantastic compared to what we get in regards to features (my buddy has a JGC in NY). Again we get get the hand me downs in technology.

Re: Canadian NAV

the traffic updates through the Sirrius satellite connection. When you buy the Jeep, they give you 3 months free.. then it will stop if you dont pay.

Re: Canadian NAV

Thanks, I assume your not CDN. I have a paid subscription to Sirius and would love to be able to receive or even subscribe to a traffic update feature if available to us, but it's not. When you go into set up your traffic city only US cities are listed.

Re: Canadian NAV

Yah , what exactly SIMONVEZ said . When I bought my GC I called sirius to get a free 3 months ( little tip, you can sometimes do this multiple times depending who you talk to at customer care ) . Anyway I asked them about the sirius traffic and what it was all about. Well they offered a free few months of it also to try it out. It gives you traffic updates in case there is a traffic jam or anything that may cause an extended amount of time driving a certain route. I find it pretty useless because Winnipeg doesn't experience traffic like some of the bigger cities, but even so I would just use my phone to check if I really need to .

Re: Canadian NAV

So you managed to get real time traffic updates thru Navi using your Sirius subscription?
I'm gonna check it out today to see if it works here in the GTA as I'm a paid subscriber to it.
Thanks guys!

Re: Canadian NAV

Checked out that link, thanks buds. Also checked online and called Sirius and was told that my '14 JGC doesn't yet support the traffic updates etc due to the merger between Sirius and XM but that it will be available shortly.

Re: Canadian NAV

I guess I'm old school but for my money you just cant beat 660 AM traffic on the one.

Traffic updates every 10 minutes.
