Traffic on Google maps - Partial premium upgrade

I have a partial premium. I'd like to get live traffic updates on Google maps.
Has anyone upgraded / called Tesla to get live traffic updates on Google maps?

I don’t think Tesla is selling upgrades to Premium Connectivity (which includes live traffic data and other stuff) just yet. I expect they’ll start doing that next month, since the first people who got free Premium Connectivity for a year will start losing it then.

You can't at this time. Maybe in the future but it only comes the premium.

EVRider, thanks for posting that link. I did not know that Teslas bought today require wifi for software updates. I have likely provided erroneous information on this forum as a result - based on the way things were when I bought mine.

Cars with Premium Connectivity can get updates over LTE. Standard Connectivity requires WiFi.
