How to verify traffic info?

We had to take our X3 into the shop to get the window replaced (smash and grab incident in downtown Seattle). There were some issues with parts and we ended up in a 528i loaner for several days.

We immediately noticed the nav was showing colored lines for all of the roads indicating where all of the traffic was. I seem to recall this special gray mode, but ignored it until now. It was great having all of that information.

Got the X3 back today and immediately changed that option for gray mode, but there are no colored lines anywhere on the map. We have no idea what is going on. Traffic info tick mark is checked along with traffic flows. Still solid gray along every major road here in Seattle. Seems like traffic info has stopped working.

Any way to verify this? What are next steps? Back to dealer?
