2008 Cadillac CTS: Real-Time Traffic Review
October 17, 2008
On Wednesday morning I had the unfortunate chance to make use of the Cadillac's real-time traffic feature, which is built into its navigation system. It was unfortunate because I was stuck in a big bad traffic jam (red dots), not because I used the system. In fact, the system worked great.
As you can see in the photo, it alerts you to which roads are clogged (red dots) and which are moving (green dots). It also tells you where there are accidents (yellow diamond shapes) and will route you around such holdups if you ask it to.
Unlike some gimmicks in new cars, this one works well and is easy to make use of. Put it on the worth-the-money list.
