Traffic information is not available in all areas/countries.
Coverage areas for traffic information are being increased continuously.
In the "Traffic settings" section the driver can define a number of settings.
Directly on the map
Traffic disturbances such as compact and slow traffic, road works, accidents etc. are shown with different symbols on the map.
When disturbances are more severe their extent is also shown with a RED line along the side of the road, e.g. in the event of road works. The line indicates at the same time in which travel direction the disturbance applies - if the disturbance is in both directions the road section is marked with a line on both sides.
- Press the traffic disturbance symbol - an information card is shown.
The information can describe for example the position of the disturbance with the street name or road number, and the disturbance's nature, extent or duration.
If the disturbance is situated on the route the Avoid option can be selected. The system then calculates an alternative route.
