Default Traffic Info. (TMC) no longer available

Traffic information suddenly is no longer available on my 2013 Prestige A6. I thought this was to last for 4 yrs?

Glad he was able to solve it - It's really nice that there's a Richie to help us out but as to "great" Sirius customer service in general, I would say not. When you call the regular customer service dept. #, they appear to not a have a clue and the loss of traffic issue shouldn't have come up in the first place. And if Richie moves on to somewhere else, then what?

Yep. I'm enjoying the trial period in my new Outback, but will let that go once its over. I enjoy the radio, but after a couple years dealing with them in the A6, its just too painful.
