I originally wanted to be given the option to evaluate reroutes for traffic, so I turned off auto updates of routes for traffic. However I found that I guess I'd have to pay a lot of attention to traffic notifications then or go in manually and tap the traffic indicator to make my choice to reroute. Otherwise I guess it stays on the original route at the time of request even if traffic changes quite a lot.

I went back to auto updating of routes for traffic because I found that manually it drew too much attention of the driver to the center display (and not the driver info display) and required multiple screen taps/views to make a decision. I had gotten used to a TomTom standalone nav device where alternate routes would be displayed on screen along with estimated time savings.

Curious how others who use Garmin nav configure their preferences to handle traffic.

I’ve been using mine with the automatic route change turned off. But I wish they would enable voice commands for traffic.
It is unfortunate that the voice command system in the Honda seems a bit archaic and less intuitive than others I have tried. Well, the one other I have tried. 🙄
