traffic and the nav system?

I have not yet received my Levante (shipped Jan 4th - can't wait), but I was curious if there was anyway to display real time traffic in the Nav system like on my BMW? Its not super accurate but it is nice.
I know I can get this with Android Auto (if I can get this to work again in my car once its here) but I was curious if the native navigation system displays traffic.
Also, anyone tried or thought about upgrading the speakers/audio system yet? Test drove a car with the HK system and it was underwhelming, no low end...
Thoughts on these?

I was surprised to see there is some limited traffic on the Maserati Nav -- but I generally use Carplay and Apple Maps, which. Is actually pretty good

The HK system lacking is definitely a common comment across the boards. Unsure of the integrated nav having traffic stream though. I would just utilize Android Auto if you can, nothing better than Google maps in my opinion

My Levante uses Garmin for Navigation and traffic does show up.
It is not too bad, comparing with Google Maps through Android Auto.

Traffic is the main thing that's a necessity with GPS now. I guess once it has that, it makes it perfectly sufficient.

The one thing I haven't noticed is these systems being interactive enough to pick up on notifications. If that can be done while we're driving then that will go a long way. Having traffic input from a number of sources will position you better than 90% of drivers out there.

The MTC+ does come with Sirius Travel Link services (in the US it's a four year "trial" then you have to subscribe) which provide traffic conditions etc through Sirius services.
