Maps Traffic Overlay

Question from a new owner - when using navigation, is it possible to enable a traffic overlay that shows red for traffic, blue for clear, yellow for somewhere in between etc.? This is a feature I use constantly on Google Maps just to know how much longer the current stretch of traffic will last. I do not see anything that allows for this on the Tesla. I have Premium Connectivity which is supposed to have live traffic... Not sure what that means.

Thanks!

Yes. Tap on the map. look at the bottom right. You will have 3 icons: one for switching to satellite view, one for traffic (streetlight icon), and one to see superchargers (lightning bolt). You'll see red and orange sections appear.
Note that you need premium connectivity to show traffic on the map. It will be taken into account in routing in all cases though, it's only display that is dependent on connectivity.
