2013 328i Coupé has the 6UH Traffic information system but I have never seen any traffic information. When selecting "Traffic information" via iDrive it says "Receiving Traffic Information" for about 30 seconds, then "No traffic information available". Of course I have enabled it in every menu I can find per the manual.

I have read that:

  • It is automatically disabled after four years and the dealer has to re-enable it
  • It requires Sirius XM subscription
  • It stops working if you update the maps (I have updated to 2017 -1 and did not test TIS before the update)
  • You live in an area where traffic information is not available
  • The system was discontinued

Some of these of these seem rather unlikely but I have been unable to find anything definitive.

The car was built with 6UH but not satellite radio
I live in a fairly large urban area
etc

I would appreciate input from the knowledgeable people here on the forum.

Thanks!

Waze on your smartphone will be better.
Now what would be really cool is if Waze on phone could be displayed on iDrive.
