    What's the deal with the traffic option?

    Am I missing something with the Navigation?
    When I select traffic, I'm only given the option to see historical traffic trends.. That's useless. Does the traffic option only work when something out of the ordinary (crash, construction...) happens?

    as far as I know, there is not live traffic info in the car Nav.
    Only additional option is a semi-static traffic map (received by the radio) that is in one of the apps menu options (on 2016-2018) but its not very useful.
    Most people use carplay or AA/waze.

    Thanks for the info

    I'm assuming my Mazda doesn't have AA?
    It's a 2018 Touring + Preferred Package, but I don't see the white smart phone Icon by any of the USB plugs. .

    You'll need to get the retrofit installed (new USB & Software) to have AA unfortunately. If nav traffic is a priority it sounds like it'll be worth it for you though.
