    XM Travel Link, useful?

    Looks like the 2019 CX5's with XM capability are only year available with XM Travel link.
    For those with 2019's how often do you find it helpful?
    I'm a weather buff and would find it pretty neat pulling up radar data when taking a drive right off the connect system.
    Also does Travel link work integrated with the stock SD card Navigation to provide traffic info?

    I don*t use the weather radar part, but have the traffic info turned on. I can take it or leave it. Usually by the time you see the congestion on the display, you*re already in it.

    I didn't know there was weather radar on it.

    There have been times I get an emergency alert for tornadoes, but those are county-wide. Greater detail would be of value.

    I turned off the weather alert after Hurricane Dorian. Warnings were popping up for a week after the storm had departed.

    I've heard, though the grapevine, that the 2020 models will longer have traffic XM capabilities. We've had the weather alert go off one time during server thunderstorm activities...

    Ditto here. Broward County where I live has a pretty good email/text/phone alert system for potential bad weather events.

    I've used it in other vehicles. It's fine, for free. For $$$, forget it.
