Advanced Real Time Traffic?

Have noticed grey diamond shape with car symbol within Traffic Info. I have RECEIVE TRAFFIC INFO and DYNAMIC GUIDANCE selected and checked in the system dash. I called BMW Assist and Genius and they both told me it's not purchasable as an option. BMW Assist Rep said that the car has Real Time Traffic just not "Advanced" Real Time Traffic. They suggest I talk to the dealer about it. I had the retrofit done recently and thought that if I purchased BMW Assist AND Concierge Services then it would have been included. Then BMW Assist said maybe they need to install hardware/software into the car. I'm confused. I thought there was just one Real Time Traffic and then they brought up "Advanced" Real Time Traffic and said the car isn't equipped to receive Advanced Real Time Traffic after 3 years of the car's initial activation. Anyone have Advanced Real Time Traffic and how can that be activated (or not worth it?)?
