Default After market Nav systems

I spoke with an Acura dealer today. She indicated that there is an
aftermarket Nav system that also can provide traffic reports. It is somehow
connected to either to XM or some other part of the existing Acura audio
system. Any ideas as to what she is talking about and an associated hyper
link?

Thanks for the information. Does anyone know if this system would fit in a
TL? If so do you get the nav or non nav version?

If you put it in <> brackets like that it won't truncate and folks can
click on it. ;^)

The traffic reports come through XM radio from a national service known as
"Traffic Pulse". Take it from someone like me who lives in one of the
major cities covered by this service (Houston) that the traffic accident
and lane blockage and freeway shutdown (and police chase) reports are more
historical accounts of what *was* happening an hour ago than anything
remotely resembling current conditions. They also read canned scripts
based on daily historical hourly traffic flow trends than anything current
or factual.

Translation: If you want a NAV system, get one. But don't base your
selection on the presence or absence of any traffic reporting feature
because the reports are highly inaccurate.

I've seen the Pioneer NAV package and it's pretty cool. Some custom shops
sell it for the full retail ($1600) price include standard (non-custom)
installation in the price. DON'T GET IT AT BEST BUY unless you're going to
have someone (anyone) else install it. My opinion, Best Buy = BB = Butcher
Boys.
