Display traffic conditions in Maps

Issue: 

 Maps gives you turn-by-turn directions to your destination and displays a map of the route that you can zoom in on for greater detail. You can also have the map display driving conditions in certain areas. To turn on this feature, set up your trip and go to the map view. Tap on the page-turn icon in the lower right corner and tap on the button labeled “Show Traffic.” (If traffic condition info is not available, the button is grayed out and labeled “Traffic Unavailable In This Area.”) The map is now displayed with the roads highlighted in green, yellow, or red to indicate the driving conditions.

  • Green means you should be able to travel at more than 50 miles per hour
  • Yellow: 25–50 miles per hour
  • Red: less than 25 miles per hour
