I live in the Hartford, CT area and find the Sirius Traffic option just about useless and will not renew when my contract expires. I've been caught in a highway parking lot situation and the NAV shows green. I've breezed through red marked areas. Only once in 6 months has the NAV showed red and there was a real traffic jam. The same happens when I travel to New York City. Not very accurate.

I've the same feeling - I haven't seen any accident symbols on my display despite the fact that I hear about accidents on the radio - WTOP here in DC area and the colored line that are supposed to indicate traffic congestion don't exactly correlate to traffic conditions. I've confirmed thru SIRIUS that my subscription for traffic is valid, so I don't know what the answer is.
There's a website that caters specifically to these kind of questions:
So, I'm going to post your and my concerns there and see what responses pop up, since the heavy power hitters are there and not in this forum.

If you have the touch screen head unit you can get the MDI for it. Below are the part numbers needed to make this happen.

#19 of 24 Navigation/camera questions
Jun 07, 2010 (5:40 pm)
Enjoying my 2010 Tiguan, but....
1. One thing I like to do when on the highway is find a Starbucks for a break. None of the "places" (restaurants/fast food/etc) seem to find coffee shops. Is the only alternative to type in Starbucks in the "name" option? If so, is there a way to save this, or do you have to redo this each time in a different location?
2. There is a boot up time for the nav/camera. By the time this occurs, I've already backed out of the space. Is this normal?
3. The nav instruction manual is completely cryptic! Anyone know of easier directions?
#20 of 24 New release of Navigation DVD

Anyone know when the new nav DVD gets released?
I recently bought a 2010 SEL w/nav...and it comes with a 2009 DVD. I'm not thrilled with the functioning, and wonder if an updated DVD will improve things.
has anyone gotten a DVD update with a new Tiguan purchase?

The 2010 DVD isn't out yet. Right now navteq has v2M which is the current version. v3M is coming out and it takes about an hour to install to the HDD.

Version 3M is now available for only $199.99. Navteq P/N is U0022-0075-005 on their website. It might still be listed as 2M, but they just started shipping it. It takes about an hour to update the HDD, and no security code is needed to update the system.

Just picked up my 2010 Tiguan S - today! Where do I get the cable to connect my ipod in the armrest area?

Check your VW parts department. I don't think you can get that cable anywhere else, but I could be mistaken. I got mine from VW. Cost about $45 or something like that.
