Eww... 660!?! News Talk 770 is better.

Just kidding of course... kinda. I didn't opt for the Navigation personally, so I can't check it out on mine. I feel like Navigation and other driver aids like park assist, blind-spot monitoring, etc. make people worse drivers because they become dependent on those technologies, but that's just a personal opinion.

I like 660 for the traffic lol

My father in law has a Chrysler and he has the traffic now as well. He thinks it's a trial.

A not the assistants on the vehicle... That is what I see them as. I still shoulder check and pay attention.

I've had traffic alerts pop before, but I've not seen them in some time. Wish they'd work more frequently or in more locations. Then again, I'd just love if FCA would update the **** maps, and provide us with the recent UConnect update.

SirusXM is giving all 2 weeks for everyone because of a lawsuit. The lawsuit is about SirusXM calling current and pervious customers about their service and basically calling them after harrasment hours. If you've submitted a claim then you get SirusXM Traffic among other channels for 3 months: https://www.siriusxmtcpasettlement.com/en.

If you did not then you're not then everyone is on this two week promo they got http://www.siriusxm.com/sxmlp217?sxm...RING_UN_HP_TOP

Very interesting @R2D2,

I have tried to sign up for traffic in Canada, and they said its not possible, and not active on the Canadian vehicles.
