The HD traffic should work in metro areas (that's where I am). If you're in a smaller area, you might need to subscribe to SMX to get it. Or use Andriod Auto/Apple Car Play to access your phones map system.
Hi Beth, I don't have this menu in my Niro. It's really bizarre.
I don't know, maybe we are talking t different versions of Kia Niro. My Niro is a 2018 Hybrid Touring. I added some pictures from setup navigation manual.

That is different. Mine has Traffic/Guidance instead of just Guidance on that menu. I thought the Touring and the EX Premium that I have had similar features.

Hi lafe005,

Thanks for your screen photos. I live in Quebec city and I'm going to Kia dealer to talk about this issue. It's really strange, the same car model with different GPS fonctions. I will post updates here.

Thanks again

No problem! BUT, i have tought of this this morning. Since you have a 2018 SX Touring and mine is a PHEV SX with UVO system, it could change alot of things in the KIA GPS system between our 2 cars!.. let us know what the dealer says!

Salut!

I called Kia Canada and they told me that option traffic/guidance was not available in Canada for any Kia model. Accord to them, this information come from kia engineers. I told that I have photos with this option available and they ask me to send to them. I suppose to have an answer in 24h.
