Will the 2006 Navigation system get NavTraffic? I hope so.

Pretty sure the 2005s did starting with January builds. I bought a little early. Actually, based on the discounts they came up with, I bought way early. Hmm. Have to see if my brother has nav traffic. He should. Partially makes up for his slower car.

NavTraffic being the XM augment to the DVD Nav ?
Should, my April built '05 has it.
So far it's a wash where I live; can't say it's helping. Would have been great the one trip down to SoCal right after purchase. I was too stupid to remember "can't program while in motion." LoL - never stopped on the ride home after that to do so.

:yup: XM satellite radio is standard on all 2006 CTS. XM Nav traffic is standard on all cars with the GPS navigation along with XM radio. I've seen the window sticker on a 2006.

The only deal is that it only works in 22 major metropolitan areas, currently.

Thanks for the info. Before now, I could never find any indication that the CTS-Vs had NavTraffic like the CTSs.

it was confirmed a while ago that it would be available on the 05s...

Now do you really want it, thats a better question.
