    5 Day Weather Forecast Through Navigation System

    How do I get the weather forecast to show up on my navigation system? Does the weather and traffic alert work automatically?

    My SRX is only 2 weeks old I still have the 3 months of XM radio. Salesman told me I should be able to see the weather forecast for upcoming days and get traffic and weather alerts. I havent been able to figure out how its done.

    Press the "Info" button. Use the touch screen to press the "Weather" button. That's it. Sometimes it takes a minute or so to download new info.

    okay push the hard button (info) your weather should load. Then push (menu) soft button then you should be able to chose extended weather.
    I think

    You can switch back and forth between the two. Just hit "Info" and then "Nav" hard buttons to switch views.

    To add to this discussion...

    My dealer failed to set up the part of XM that showed the weather info. I had to call XM Radio and request they add it. I had to get forwarded to the technical dept. but they finally got it activated.

    Same story with me Steve; had to call XM and get it downloaded and setup. I wonder about the process XM uses to activate this stuff if the radiio works but those two features do not.

    If going to this web page and following the directions, doesn't get you the weather info, call XM Radio and ask them to add it to you trial.

    I transferred over the remaining balance of XM and Onstar from my old 2008 CTS that I traded in for my SRX. It went pretty smooth. You guys are talking about the screen that pops up and you can either go to weather or HVAC? Pretty cool feature as long as it has your area's weather forecast. Mine was set at Deleware or something crazy like that considering I'm in Connecticut....LOL! All works fine now.

    I had to call XM this morning to have them add it--I thought it was user error that prevented me from getting the weather forecasts and traffic alerts but it was the dealer that forgot to add it.

    I just called XM and they said the weather and traffic sometimes takes 3 hours to activate. So I still don't have it.

    I think I must have gotten the service center in Haiti on both of my calls.

    dsy@cox.net,

    I also traded in my 2008 CTS for an SRX. Like the
    SRX better. How 'bout you?

    Thanks guys--any word on how the traffic alerts or detours work when you have the navigation going?
    It works rather well, though with some precautions.

    There have been many times, while driving with nav,
    that I get a voice announcement and map warning that
    there is a traffic incident ahead.

    I remember on my CTS this came up and asked if I
    wanted to detour. I was minutes away from crossing
    over to NJ via the George Washington Bridge.

    Mistakingly, I told the NAV to detour and it put
    me on the West Side Highway and tripled my time
    getting home.

    The traffic/detour function is pretty cool, but be
    damn sure that the route it is suggesting does not
    put you more out of the way time wise than you
    would be sitting in traffic.

    You can also, at any time, check traffic conditions
    along your route with the NAV.

    I also believe I got voice weather warnings
    as well from time to time.
