Real Time Traffic Information - GR Sport

Recommended Posts

Another one from me about the new car - really disappointed with the RTTI compared to the display on our previous Dynamic Premium.  Can't see anywhere advanced warning of hold ups, the reason for the delay and how long the delay is projected to be, all of which we got on the Dynamic Premium display.  I wrote to Toyota and they replied:

Real time traffic is still available on your Multimedia 21 unit, layout is different compared to multimedia 19 unit you had in previous Rav4.

All traffic information is now visible on the map itself rather than drop down box, also instead of seeing information for all roads, this is updated as you travel round and become visible on the screen by selecting that road traffic event. I.e, road works with flow showing up as amber or red against road.

Please see below information from owners manuals:

More information regarding map software update message from multimedia unit when selected. This appears as file is not detected by USB flash drive. We have asked Toyota Europe for the message to change as its very misleading. 

Multimedia unit installed with active services connected, it will behave as a 'hybrid' nav system and the map will refresh x24 a year automatically. This occurs in the background without any input from the customer / user, you may only notice 'update settings' appear on screen at times.

Map updates via USB flash drive can only be performed by your local Toyota centre, not available on eStore.

Anyone got any ideas? Am I doing something wrong again?

Same here -

Just done a 200 mile trip to Southampton and then back a week later and could not get ‘live’ traffic updates !

Really disappointed, or am I missing something ?.

Thanks 👍

I know nothing about the ‘24 model but were you following a programmed route or just looking at the display as you drove along. Some systems only provide this type of information if navigating a route?

Thanks for the reply -

Following a programmed route both times.

On the way down we were stuck in traffic for 30 mins and nothing showed.

Then on the way back the A34 was closed and again nothing, plus the M6 near home had the overhead signs showing 40 min delays - nothing on the sat nav ??
