Hi All,

Brought my R1t home last Thursday! Loving it. Build quality is very good.

One thing I wondered - especially for other NorCal folks - I am not seeing traffic in the maps app, really needed in my area! Anyone know the scoop on traffic display?

Thanks,

GEON

It works. It only shows when there is heavy traffic. Road will turn yellow or red, depending on severity. I wish they’d include green for when traffic info is available but unincumbered.
OK, cool, have been in a full on stop and go yet, but it wasn't showing any difference. Got spoiled by Tesla's maps that were pretty accurate.


Thanks!

I sincerely wanna love everything about my R1T... but not to mince words. The Nav system sucks. Directions are rarely accurate or even logical on how to get somewhere. Traffic is not current or useful, Alexa integration is marginal (I've asked for her to set destinations many times only to have the system launch the nav app with no destination - so I need to pull over and manually type in the address). The lack of waypoints on the Tesla has driven me crazy for years. I wish that's all that was wrong with the Rivian.

Maybe sell your PoS to someone here who would love to have it and purchase a Tesla?

Let me clarify... I see a serious flaw in the Rivian <-> Amazon relationship. I'm thrilled Mr. Bazos assisted with bringing the vehicles to market. My R1T is my everyday driver over a MX. I'm not trading it in 'cause Mr. Scaringe made a 'deal with the devil'. I'm simply making the point that the Nav system sucks. And I blame the Rivian <-> Amazon relationship for that. While we are on the topic, I'm not a fan of using Alexa for hands free UI navigation either. IMO there are dedicated teams working on solving these issues that have done a much better job. a la Google/Apple. Granted, neither is any less of a deal with the devil than Amazon. But they both do a WAY better job of vehicle to internet integration. Clearly first world problems.
