    I have an '08 with the NAV package. I cannot get traffic avoidance on this NAV. My husband has an aftermarket Garmin for his Honda and it had a very helpful Traffic Avoidance feature. Does anyone know any way to get a traffic avoidance in my car? Thanks

    I believe that you are going to need XM radio and subscribe to XM Traffic in order to get traffic avoidance on the Nav. At least that is the way that I understand my 2010 to work.

    I have XM. They told me I cannot get avoidance in my model.:(
    Any other ideas?
    Are you sure you will be able to get avoidance in your '10? I was told it is not available there either. I hope you are right. I am thinking of trading up.
