Good evening 

 

I subscribed to xm traffic services and 70 % of the time it will show traffic , closed road and the like. But it had been a few time when there was very heavy traffic the gps does not reroute me to another intinary like today for example i got stuck in traffic for 2 hours. My nagigation setting is set to retoute automatically. 

 

I checked with Google maps and wave and both were rerouting to another route and shave 15mn of the planned route.

Is there a problem with the nav system not being able to calculate alternative route when in heavy traffic ?  Otherwiaw i might as well cancel my subscription to xm traffic and  use Waze or google maps

It never rerouted me, EVER, despite facing HEAVY traffic most days. It just isn't a good system. I switched to Google Nav years ago... Oh yeah, and the $150 map updates. What a joke.

It will only reroute if there is a traffic "incident", ie the little box.  It will not reroute if there is just a red or yellow line on the road.

Right. A good part of the problem lies with the traffic information available through Sirius/XM. Just not enough timely data or granularity. They often report the slowdown/backup, just not the reason behind it.

You are right about the $150 map update which is not even current once purchase.

naw in my case even the little yellow box did not get it to reroute me 2 days ago it kept telling me that i was 39 minutes from destination when in fact it took me 2 hours to get home ....i will cancel and keep using waze and google map

I only rely on the car's nav when traveling cross-country. Around town it's Waze. There's no way the built-in nav + XM can beat the crowd-sourced traffic information and re-routing that Waze can do. It is an enormous drain of the phone's battery, so I keep it plugged into the USB jack in the center console.

We paid a lot to add navigation to our cars. What? Like about a grand, plus or minus? Maybe $750? Either way, I seriously regret that decision. For the money, this system is terrible, IMHO. Otherwise, it's a lovely car. Easily my favorite car I've ever owned. ;)

Maybe I should consider that $750 rebate they gave me to be a refund for the crappy navigation system... Besides, I've exceeded the original 47/47/47 EPA estimated MPG anyhow. There, now I'm happy. :)
