How to Get Traffic info in Real Time on Your iPad
On your iPad, you can find out the traffic conditions for the map you’re viewing by tapping the little i-in-a-circle in the lower-right corner of the map and then tapping Show Traffic. If it says Hide Traffic, don’t tap — the option is already on.
Major roadways are color-coded to inform you of the current traffic speed. Here’s the key: Orange dots show slowdowns, and red dashes show stop-and-go traffic.
To see an incident report, tap a red minus-sign marker.
Traffic info doesn’t work in every location. The only way to find out is to give it a try and see whether color codes appear. And because Maps works only when you have a network connection, you won’t see traffic info if you’re not connected. You might try Google Maps or Waze if Maps doesn’t provide what you need in a particular location; you can keep all three — Maps, Google Maps, and Waze — on all our iDevices.
