After playing around with settings in the navi menu, I stumbled on to this. This is the hottest navigation screen I've ever seen. Shows buildings around me & traffic flow.

If you guys already knew about this then I'm sorry to add another meaningless post. I'm just loving my new ride.

In the manual it denotes "where available". So I'm guessing major metropolitan areas. It feels like the navi is google based tho. Both are Navteq maps.

Are you saying you get live traffic on city streets?

My 2007 gets traffic only on the freeways through the RTTI system and it's highly unreliable and very imprecise.

Since I'm driving around NYC, nearly every street is yellow or red, lol. Its due to the categories, there is always road work or detours going on. Doesn't matter to me because I know all the fast routes anyway being a resident. I haven't tried it in other cities yet.

How do you get the 3-d?? Does it come up in the "perspective" view? I haven't seen anything like it in my city. BOTH of our buildings are pretty tall in Cleveland. Try "Cleveland Tourism" video on You Tube:bigpimp:

It is in perspective view and you also have to click the box for 3D in the options.

I had heard rumors of this feature, but I hadn't actually seen it in operation. After seeing this thread, I tried it out last night and sure enough I was able to see buildings in different cities. Pretty cool!

I had to use the interactive feature to navigate to different cities, since I don't live in the city and I had to zoom in to somewhere between 400ft and 100ft to see the buildings.

Nice find. Thanks for sharing.

There's some mild usefulness as it does help your orientation, but for me it's far more about eye candy.

Friends get in the car and go all gaga over it.

hot damn!

i guess it's a nice novelty item...how useful is it?
