Yes, only with guidance mode engaged. And it only happens in extreme cases, sometimes a mile or so before you reach the problem area.

And, you are "that" person I mentioned (which you knew ). So sometimes I turn on guidance on my way to work (7 miles) just to get a timing. One route is to take 370 to 270 for about 1.5 miles. There are always traffic triangles showing on 270, in guidance mode. If I don't take the turn it is telling me to take to get to 270 (I go a different, better way), the triangles immediately disappear from 270 even though guidance is still engaged, because it assumes I will not take 270. Not until I actually get back on (via 370), do the 270 triangles appear again. Also, if I turn guidance off altogether, the triangles disappear. I don't think I've gotten all the software updates you have, maybe that is why mine might act differently.
