Is SiriusXM or HK redirecting me around traffic?

Is traffic provided by HK or satellite radio?

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

Thanks!

Sirius XM provides the traffic.

Re: Is SiriusXM or HK redirecting me around traffic?

When I am driving using the nav, I get rerouted a lot (East coast), it says because of traffic. Based on the radio reports, I think it is.

Re: Is SiriusXM or HK redirecting me around traffic?

It worked for me on a recent trip to Long Island. I got across Staten Island, coming and going, without hitting any real traffic problems. For those that know the area, that's a small miracle. It did direct me down some funky back roads, but it worked.!

Re: Is SiriusXM or HK redirecting me around traffic?

I have often gotten the message "Rerouting to avoid traffic congestion ahead" on a frequently traveled route yet the route doesn't vary and I run into the congestion. Glad it works for y'all.

I can also add that when we were flooded today in Chicago, it no idea almost all roads were closed EW at the river. River is cresting at near record levels, and the 10 mile drive was 2 hours.

Re: Is SiriusXM or HK redirecting me around traffic?

Hijacking an old thread.

I recently purchased an Overland (used). While using the navigation to get home it said something along the lines of "heavy traffic - recalculating" and it picked another route. I didn't follow the recalculation and continued upon my normal route where I ran into traffic.

I find this interesting because I don't have a Sirius radio subscription (purchased used car). Google has only turned up results of people complaining about the system not working well; but I can't find anyone addressing if the system works without a Sirius subscription. I doubt it connects to our phones and uses an internet connection. (my phone was paired)

OR....the only other explanation is the navigation rerouted and I misunderstood the navigation lady and she never mentioned anything about traffic.

You either misunderstood, or you have a legacy subscription from the previous owner that was never canceled. Easy to tell if is was the latter. Do you have XM radio?

If not...you misunderstood.

Re: Is SiriusXM or HK redirecting me around traffic?

Sirius occasionally turns the service back on for two week or so intervals at which time you'll get those kind of notifications when you're using the NAV to route you. You'll also probably notice traffic indicators on your route screen..."green" highlighting for "full speed ahead", "yellow" for slowing congestion and "red" for heavy, heavy congestion or full stop. Mine is on right now...it will disappear in a few days based on the calendar as I never renewed after the free first year subscription expired.

They also tend to send out a note via the US Postal Service saying how nice they are for turning it back on for a bit, but since the don't know you are the owner of the previously owned vehicle, you will not see those offers to subscribe for real.

Re: Is SiriusXM or HK redirecting me around traffic?

It appears they turned my subscription on for a little while. We experienced a thunderstorm and received an alert with weather on the navigation.

Interesting feature but I use my phone so I doubt it is worth it.
