Ideally, manufacturers should stop using their own navigation, and instead include CarPlay and Android Auto in every car. I think Subaru has CP and AA with every vehicle they sell so that’s a good start.
Don't need a data plan, you can pre download maps on the phone.

Anyone managed to confirm if the traffic update works? I used the provided cigar outlet connector and once I select the destination...I hit option/settings and selected traffic button...I ot a message stating it may take several minutes to receive the traffic update and just hangs there for >20min (The direction still works but no update on traffic...Anyone had similar experience? I live in Ottawa. Thx.

I don't recall ever seeing an actual traffic update.

What should happen is a notification popping up saying there's an X minute delay and a yellow band showing where there is a lot of traffic.
If it's really bad, it will suggest alternate routes.

The traffic feature hides when traffic is light,

I don't recall seeing any of that notification and the route was pretty bad that time of the day. I'll do few more test. Thx

Make sure your Drive's settings are properly set for traffic to work.
Also, as I recall, there can be areas where there are no traffic services.

Traffic service is only provided in GTA, Greater Vancouver and Montreal iirc.

I'm pretty sure it works in Ottawa because, if I recall correctly, it's kicked in on the 407 at rush hour.

In the Montreal area, I often get prompted as much as 40kms away from the city on the Eastern Townships autoroute as well as the Laurentian autoroute near Saint-Jerome.
