After my 3 month free trial expired, I realized that all traffic and weather data requires a subscription to Sirius. I was able to set this up for a reasonable $5.98 per month. Ironically that same day, as I sat for 45 minutes in standstill traffic on my way home, nothing at all showed up in the navigation app or in the separate traffic app. I opened maps through Apple CarPlay and it showed the road I was on as solid red, full traffic.

Has anyone else had much luck with this traffic service? I’ve had Sirius traffic in previous cars (Nissans) and have found if quite useless. I guess I was hoping it would be better through Chevy.

During a free trial period, Sirius said I had the free traffic. I tried it and it did not work, so I e-mailed them about it and they said it had to be my radio. I told them it was their crappy service and that ended that.

Unfortunately that sounds about right. The good news is that it’s rumored that Apple will be making Google Maps and Waze available in CarPlay with the release of IOS 12 that is coming soon. That may be good enough to eliminate any need for Sirius whatsoever. I just wanted it to be integrated with my factory navigation. We shall see. In the meantime I can easily compare Apple apps on my phone versus Sirius on the center display simultaneously.

Well it’s been a couple of weeks now and I can most definitely say that Sirius traffic is about as useless as it can get. They should be embarrassed to offer such a terrible product. Thank goodness I have access to Google Maps which has flawless traffic reporting. I’ll be canceling Sirius tomorrow.
