Just coded for Real Time Traffic Update
I just completed the coding for real time traffic update on my 2006 this weekend. What I've seen so far:
1. There are now a lot of little boxes on my nav screen that I believe represent locations for traffic information. A few may have some icons in them that indicate construction or something else. Since they're small it's hard to see them when you driving. I don't notice any color coding of the roads indicating rate of traffic flow.
2. If you have programmed a destination, it will alert you with a screen indicating a road along your route that may have a delay, or construction etc, with time of delay and length of backup. On the same screen is a button that will calculate a new route that avoids this delay. I haven't tried that feature yet, as the delays were minimal.
3. The surprise for me, was that under information, car & travel, there are two new categories: Redlight cameras & Speedtraps! Haven't yet confirmed the accuracy of same, but I will. A whole bunch showed up.
Seems like a worthwhile change. Combined with the elimination of the Legal Disclaimer and the addition of the turnsignals to the non-M display, it made the process of learning how to do the coding worthwhile.
