I just renewed my SiriusXM radio subscription by signing up for a 1-year promotion for the SiriusXM Select radio package. I also renewed the Travel Link subscription (which follows the subscription dates for the radio package). The account "specialist" also sold me a 1-year Traffic Plus subscription for a deeply discount price. It's been several days now, and I am still not getting any traffic info in sensus navigation. I have called a few times and had multiple refresh signals sent and still nothing. Under vehicle information in sensus, the traffic provider is blank. It used to say "INRIX" when I had my cell phone connected for internet. Since I don't have any other apps loaded, RTTI traffic info was the only reason I used the personal hotspot, and I was hoping to replace that with the SiriusXM Traffic Plus subscription. Interestingly, a 2019 S60 loaner from the dealership that I drove recently had the SiriusXM traffic active, so not sure what the issue is with my 2018 XC60 . Anyone else had a similar issue with the traffic service from SiriusXM? Any thoughts on how to get it working?

I though the traffic info was broadcast for free outside of Sirius.
In my Acura it does it like that, I believe that the traffic info is sent in the FM band.

Volvo gets its traffic info via RTTI. Do you have the car's internet modem turned off?

Also...Your car was supposed to come with 4-years of Travel Link as a free trial subscription. So SiriusXM is giving you a "deep discount" on something that was already paid for.

Concur.
I do not have any Sirirus "traffic" service, and I got live updates this week.

When Sirius trial subscription expired on my 2018 S60, I was able to renew just the Traffic Link service (no Sirius radio) for about $4/mo. I still have it and like it - it is very accurate and reacts to traffic changes pretty much in real time. Not sure if SPA vehicles are able to utilize INRIX without cellular service, but on P3 you had to have an active cellular subscription via AT&T (which I believe was about $15/mo - more than Sirius Traffic Link subscription).

It has been a week now since supposedly subscribing to Traffic Plus from SiriusXM, and I am still not getting any traffic info. The "traffic provider" under "system information" in Sensus is also still blank. I'm hesitant to put in yet another call to SiriusXM; most of reps are worthless, and I have yet to get one on the line who speaks decent English. Maybe I should just give up... For what it's worth, SiriusXM Radio and Travel Link are both working flawlessly.:rolleyes:
