Re: Is SiriusXM or HK redirecting me around traffic?

I received an e-mail from Sirius saying traffic was free until June 4th.

If XM, will probably be the only reason I continue my subscription.

Thanks!
You can subscribe to traffic only.

After using real-time traffic applications like Google maps and Waze, XM traffic is useless.

Thought it was a cool feature at first, but quickly became obvious how inferior it was compared to the above.

Re: Is SiriusXM or HK redirecting me around traffic?

but I think it is infinitely safer to use the big screen and a navi that routes you automatically around traffic rather than you holding your phone and checking traffic while driving....or having another attachment in the car that can become loose and fly off when you brake

Yes and no. Eyes off the road is eyes off the road. Also, Waze/Google maps can talk to you. Mine stays in my cup holder. In plain sight... Not too different and I feel no less safe. To each their own... Waste of money in my opinion.

Re: Is SiriusXM or HK redirecting me around traffic?

That would explain why I started receiving traffic on the nav all of a sudden. I did not receive that email from XM abut it being free till June 4th.

Re: Is SiriusXM or HK redirecting me around traffic?

Just returned from a road trip to/from VA from GA. On the return trip, I was on I-85 and using both the navigation system in the Jeep and also Waze on my phone. At one point, both systems re-routed me on/off I-85 for about a 6-7 mile stretch. No notice appeared on UConnect, but I was able to click on the hazard icon on Waze and find out that a car was on fire on the shoulder.

I have an XM subscription; however, at my renewal, I specifically deleted traffic and weather, as I consider them (mostly) useless, given other free options on my phone.

I find it interesting that the navigation unit re-routed me on its own, without having the XM traffic subscription. This was yesterday, and there are no traffic indicators on the map for me here in Atlanta, which I would expect to see if it were active.

Very curious as to how this happened.
