How to Use Live Traffic: 

Given its one of the highest car travel weekends of the year, there’s sure to be traffic.  So make sure you’ve got CoPilot and our info ready to get you there in time for each first pitch!

Use Live Traffic to find Alternate Routes:

On the right side you will see the Live Traffic bar, click on that and it will display the Live Traffic Map.

traffic1

From the Live Traffic Map, click Alternate Route if you wish to avoid traffic. It will give you three different options.

traffic2

Receive Traffic Alerts when a Faster Route is Available: 

As you drive, CoPilot will alert you to changes in traffic ahead on your current route. If a faster route is found, it will alert you to the new route.  You can choose to continue on your current route or take an alternate route it suggests.
