Call XM, OnStar won't be able to help you with a product that isn't theirs.
Are your music channels still working?

Yes all music is working ok. I am assuming I am not getting traffic updates either because of the weather. I really miss my traffic updates.

Call XM We see this all the time when vehicles are delivered off and the XM doesnt recognize the vehicle trial with Weather/Traffic for some reason.

TG, we only get a 3 month starter subscription to XM (six months for onstar) Your first post was in September so that may have expired. If so, did you renew with an XM plan that does not include traffic?

Personally, I find XM traffic rather useless, as major highways are not covered either in my home area or while traveling. I like the music channels but when I let the traffic lapse the weather went away as well.

While I am on the topic (or close) how many on this forum have renewed onstar, for which plan, and why or why not?

A regular XM music subscription SHOULD provide you with the screens that provide current weather and the five-day forecast that are on the Regal unit. There is an enhanced weather package that is not supported by the XM radio in GM cars. See http://www.xmwxweather.com/xmwx-data/. It's called XM Wx service.

I just cut a decent deal on a year of OnStar. Read here if interested.
