After being stuck in traffic for 45 minutes this morning, it dawned on me that it might be a good idea to have traffic notifications on my NAV (I don't have data on my phone) so I can get re-routed around congestion.

 

I phoned Sirius this afternoon and was told "Sorry Ford don't have traffic anymore".   I couldn't believe it!  

Is this just in Canada or does it apply to all of North America?

Thanks,

 

So I phoned them back a couple of hours later and the previous clerk gave me completely wrong information.    If you have Sirius and Nav you can have traffic.

 

I was hoping just to sign up for traffic ($5/month) but apparently I need to get the Sirus radio package for $16/month PLUS the $5 for traffic.     I'll think about it....

I thought all Fords with nav came with 5 free years Sirius Traffic and Weather? Unless that's not valid in Canada (different terms) or used vehicles aren't covered.

I believe the 5 years started with the 2015 model. Before that, it appears that you only got 6 months, the same as the Sirius All Access trial.

Well, Sirius (for music) is worth $0/mo to me. They will give you a 6 month trial for $30.

Hi. You can really negotiate with Sirius. Tell them you want to cancell. They will pass you to a retention specialist. I now pay $25 for five months. Tell them what you think the service is worth. Takes less than five minutes. Good luck.
