Hi, may seem a stupid question but how do you know whether you actually have this set-up and working? I'm sure I have all the correct options ticked but I recently did a 160 mile journey and got no inkling of a live update, admittedly though the journey was fairly event-free. I also seem unable to get fuel prices to appear - which I thought was an option. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

do you see the colours on the roads on the nav screen?

Yes, I think so. If I select the view with 'traffic', I get some details of incidents on the route and an indication of the level of traffic (i.e. light, moderate etc.). But I've never been re-routed as far as I'm aware, I assume you would get asked to re-route or not. Just wondered if I was missing something give n that I also don't get the fuel prices.

I believe it silently redirects you, during my ownership it didn't ever prompt me - but it did divert me around problems (checked with friend in another car who was doing the same journey in a BMW - their system suggested the route that the Jag just took me on).

Also, I've had it where zero live updates were coming through - whilst I was sat in a huge queue of traffic :(

I popped the SIM out and put it back in, 30 seconds later all the traffic updates came through :(

^ ditto what SonicPace says .. have both those two scenarios happen regularly (the latter being a 3G connection issue)

It's a shame it doesn't tell you it's rerouting you like the old JLR system.

Same for me, there have been times when the system has routed me off motorways to presumably avoid traffic. The first I have known about the change of route has been when it directs me to exit the motorway at a junction not part of the original route.

Im sure it asked me very early on a couple of times but I've not seen one since. Maybe that's the new update broken it or a combination of the crappy 3G bobbins and god knows what else

Thanks, I get the option for alternative routes at the beginning of the journey but not the option to accept/decline re-routes during the journey - are you saying you do?

Hi Stato

You are not alone here, I feel exactly the same. I get route choices at the start of a journey - I can add waypoints etc and yes I see the colours on the roads but I am yet to get any re-routing announcements / options during a trip.

My other cars sat nav all give rerouting options either do you want us to do this yes /no or do you want old or new route.

Now since the 2.5 upgrade system is more stable and I've added a huawei 4G roadfi in the car to improve connectivity I haven't done many long trips to test it properly but before these upgrades it just routed me straight into traffic queues eg......

Hi Blackjagmike
Any further news on this issue? I have the same problem, seems more apparent on longer journeys, the traffic updates just stop, the 3G is connected as i can browse internet when stationary, only way i found to force traffic update is the cancel guidance and then re apply same route.. No issues on local or short journeys?

I have had the system ask for re-route on the one long journey I have done so far with it.

Anyone point me to where the option is to tick for live re-routes, so that its audible as you get with Audi. I know it works as it took me off the motorway a few days ago and I followed the route and found out later that the motorway was gridlocked for hours so it saved me a chunk of time. It would be nice to hear or see why its suggesting the new route....cheers

I have sometimes been re-routed with out any notification apart from an unexpected instructions to deviate from the original route, and have also been directed to join the back of queues with no indication of traffic issues on the satnav.

I think I have the reroute notification setting turned on, but would also welcome confirmation that I have the correct setting selected.
