Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI)

When the vehicle is connected to the Internet, the driver can access enhanced traffic information1 (RTTI2) about traffic congestion, closed roads and other circumstances that could affect travel time.

If the RTTI service is activated, information about traffic events and flow is continuously retrieved from an online service. When a vehicle requests traffic flow information, anonymous data about traffic flow in the vehicle's location is also provided, which helps enable the service to function. Anonymous data is only sent when RTTI is activated. If the service is not activated, no data will be provided.

The service may need to be reactivated e.g. following certain software updates, after a workshop visit or when creating a new driver profile.

Current traffic information is shown in the navigation system* for highways/freeways, major roads, secondary roads and in some cases urban routes.

The amount of traffic information shown on the map depends on the distance to the vehicle and is only shown within approximately 120 km (75 miles) from the vehicle's location.

Text and symbols on the map are displayed in the usual way and the traffic flow shows how fast the traffic is moving on a road in comparison with the road's speed limit. The traffic flow is shown on the map on each side of the road with a colored line in each direction.

  • Green - no disturbances.
  • Orange - slow-moving traffic.
  • Red - congestion/traffic jam/accident.
  • Black - road closed.


Traffic information is not available in all areas/countries.
