Thanks, JagMan - I appreciate your reply.
Your suggestion does work and will display both traffic flow and events - but, I found out that my issue is a little more involved...
As it turns out, my new data plan (which I started after my trial expired) isn't being recognized by my SIM card. The dealer has seen this issue before and they think (and I hope!) a software update will solve the problem. If that doesn't work, they'll replace the SIM card. I have an appointment next week and my fingers are tightly crossed - I really rely on the real time traffic flow feature during my commute!
I'll keep you posted!
