Uconnect sat nav questions

Hi all

First of all, many apologies if this is answered elsewhere, I've read loads in here (and learnt lots, thanks!), but not come across this in particular.

We're considering getting a new 500 1.2 Lounge for my wife

Sat Nav is a must have, and built in makes sense as its one less thing to worry about.
But that's where my questions start...

Being a retro kinda gal, my wife doesn't want or need, a smartphone - her old Nokia makes calls and gets texts, and she's more than happy with that

The sat nav bit of uconnect SEEMS to need a smartphone in order to get live traffic updates
Unlike any other in built sat nav I've ever come across? (Like the one in my Juke Nismo - yes, we like quirky cars )

I get that maps updates need a data connection (and probably a USB stick or suchlike, but traffic updates!?)

Is this really the case?

Many thanks!
Thanks iphotoguys thanked for this post

Re: Uconnect sat nav questions

Hello, I have a 1.2 lounge with the Nav option. Yes, unfortunately the live services (traffic, weather, news etc) do require a data connection to your phone via bluetooth as will the phone hands free system. However, it doesn't need to be a smart phone per se, as long as it has a data connection available it will be fine.
