Traffic on Your Route

When calculating your route, the

nüvi examines the current traffic and

automatically optimizes the route

for the shortest time. If a severe

traffic delay occurs on your route

while you are navigating, the nüvi

automatically recalculates the route.

You might still be routed through

traffic if no better alternative routes

If a non-severe traffic delay occurs
