Being from DC, you would then know the value of traffic reports!Acadia4VA-WV said:Wonder how up-to-date that page is on the XM site? I find some info on their website not fully current. Did anyone contact XM and ask if the service is available on the Acadia? I think the NAV is the same as on the Cadillac, but not sure.
In the Washington, DC metro area we have very good FM traffic reporting and I find the XM band for DC traffic and weather to be very useful (XM stations 210-230 serve 21 major markets). I don't know how much use this extra "XM NavTraffic" service would be for the $3.99/mo added to XM subscription; or $9.95/mo XM NavTraffic only cost. But then, I was born in DC and my commute is only 6 miles...and drive the Acadia more on weekends than during the week as my commuter car.
BTW, the XM weather service looks awesome but sure is expensive! I think only available with aftermarket hardware.

My Garmin 680 provides traffic updates (albeit MSN) and it's saved me a few times on Hwy66. The Garmin updates provide traffic problem location and estimated delay time. This is done SOON ENOUGH to avert the traffic area and choose an alternate route via Garmin's detour option. It will vector you around the traffic problem area back onto the highway!
And, I'm dreaming my Acadia system, costing WAY MORE, could grow up to do just that...
