Default Question for those with Nav & XM Traffic

Those using Nav with XM traffic does the traffic info show on the map? I can't seem to get the traffic info to show up on the Map. On my ML the local traffic would be reflected on the local roads just not sure how the PCM deals with this the manual is quite vague with no illustrations.

It does... Bright red indicates heavy traffic, deep red indicates a highway, while orange indicates your route. XM/Nav always does a solid job of rerouting due to traffic conditions. I trust its "judgement".

Navtraffic is only available in select markets. See the map at this link.

Something wrong then I sat with the service guy in my car and the road right in front of the dealership was jammed and that always showed on my prior NAV with xm traffic we even called xm had them resend the signal.

I forgo the Nav map and use my WAZE on my iPhone as it is so much more helpful and accurate.

I'm sure that's very nice but has no relevance to my question.

A navigation thread got all of four posts before someone came in with a putdown of the built-in nav. New record?

Make sure you have the XM Traffic subscription, it is separate from the radio one.

Google now owns and integrates Waze information into Google Maps or one can just use the Waze app.
