I'm also able to park 4 vehicles for free at my house whereas I used to pay $550 /month to park one car 2 blocks away!!
btw, paying for parking anywhere in Ohio is a completely foreign concept. I mean yeah, you'll pay at sporting events, but seriously...pay for parking, what is this? USSR?

Tri-state area traffic is awful. That's why I'm excited about this feature.

I swear, the stretch of 95 from Greenwich to about Bridgeport is the worst stretch of highway ever. Where else can you look forward to CONSISTENT 30 mile delays? It easily rivals LA's worst.

I've avoided jobs 5-10 miles from my current because the traffic is just that bad.

I completely agree. The people who complain about LA traffic have never seen that stretch of 95 during rush hour or the Lincoln tunnel on a bad day.

They're the same people who bitch and moan about their $3000 rent on a 2000 sq ft two bedroom apartment in LA to someone who rents a 500 sq ft walk-up studio for $4000 in the West Village.

I just re-read the navigation section of the manual and unless I'm really over looking something I don't have this option

On page 147 the manual says I should see the following:

> Day/night mode
> Satellite images
> Perspective view 3D
> Traffic conditions/grey map

As you can see in the pic below I don't have the 4th option. Can anyone tell me what I'm missing in order to see this Traffic option?
