Yes, I absolutely have it on my 430N. When you press the menu hard button, a soft "Sirius Traffic" button comes up, and I can view the logs of traffic messages related to my route (accident, construction, etc). On the same screen is an option to turn on Dynamic Routing. When a new traffic alert comes in during active Navigation, the unit says something like "Recalculating your route due to traffic conditions".

My application version is: 2.201
Database: D3 R521N 1004 33.3
SDS 170901
System: 3.8 6816009

What version do you guys have that is missing Sirius Traffic?

As to the Overland itself, it's awesome, and I'll do a full writeup with some pics tomorrow. But first, a warning:

One heads up though. I had a much harsher ride then I was expecting for the frst couple hundred miles, and HUGE amounts of road noise. I thought somthing was seriously wrong.

As it turns out, my tire pressures were all 42 PSI. They are supposed to be 36 PSI (this is for the 20's). I bled off the excess pressure, the road noise went away, and the ride quality was hugely improved. You might not think 6 PSI would make a big difference, and I didn't think it would solve the problem, but it did. Check your pressures, because my ride was teeth jarringly brittle, and the noise was really, really bad, especially on concrete roads. The sidewall on one of my tires has a split on it now. Coincidence?

Some dealer prep, eh?
Has anyone checked the EVIC tire pressure readings against a good tire pressure gage to see how accurate it is. My EVIC is showing 42 psi on the left front and 41 psi on the other three. I checked my left front with a cheap digital gage I have and it read 39 PSI.

Re: News from the road!

Many have the 730 that was to be standard on the Overland, and yes, you did pay for it. There was a repricing of the Overland after the 430 became standard, about $300.

I know, I ordered after the base price drop and still got the 730n (and the sticker says 430n, as well as the build sheet).

But hey, what are the odds I'm the only one who got a 730n despite it being "unavailable" and not paying for it?
Happened to me too. Window sticker says 430n. I really enjoy having the 730n. There are somethings i would change but i like it
