Is the navigation system designed to show traffic?

I've noticed that the routes Acura navigation takes me through is very often much less optimized than Google Maps on my smartphone... kind of a bummer, as I've had to resort to using the phone to navigate on occasion.

It has traffic, but I find that the information is not quite as current as you would find on Google or Waze.

Sometimes, you can choose a "green" route, and then find yourself in a slowdown that the Acura system has not detected. But if your passenger checks Waze or Google, those systems do show the slowdown.

This is something that Acura will - I am sure - mature over time.

I can't say if my Canadian experience holds for the US.

I only use the GPS in the car and in my limited driving in areas with problems or congestion it has never rerouted me. It does seems to correctly show traffic conditions on the highway with read or green lines, but the side road outside my home has been a dashed green since I have gotten the car and never changes to red even when there is bumper to bumper rush hour traffic.
