so, the Traffic Info appeared on my nav screen (albeit greyed out and not selectable) because i popped in a 2009 map DVD? interesting... I know that the ZIP code search in addition to the City name search option started to work because of the newer disk...

I'll need to pop in the old, 2005 disk, to see if the Traffic will disappear...

Which would prove that the new disk has the Traffic (same as TMC?) info aspart of the database... Which would beg a question, can the traffic info be subscribed to? maybe via Sirius? I do not have Sirius but having traffic option might be an incentive big enough to consider retrofitting one...
