(1) Traffic updates via internet are reported to be free for only 60 days, then requires a subscription.I don't know if it's the same in the US, but over here in the UK the Navigation only comes with "historical" traffic information, which seems pretty useless to me? I was annoyed to find that the "Live Traffic" option was greyed out. This was not how the system was sold to me when thinking about buying ("free maps for life based on TomTom with traffic included" was what I was told).
(1) But last night I got it to work! Whilst parked in the garage I switched on the WiFi and connected to my home network. I found that I could now get live traffic and weather, but not any petrol (gas) stations. I was thinking how useless that was when it occurred to me that of course I can set up a WiFi hotspot on my phone, and the phone can provide the data connection. And that's what it says on the 124spiderinfotainment.com website, as well as stating that map updates are only free for 3 years after "locking" to the car after 100km/63miles.
I've found a few other limitations as well...
(2) When playing back music from a USB stick, the system annoyingly uses the manufacturer's "name" rather than the label I gave to the stick, and still fails to display some of the album art.
(3) On a lot of menus or options, where the "wheel/joystick" can be used to move left/right or up/down, once it hits the end it stays there, so if I want to find "ZZ Top" in my contacts, I can't go "backwards" from A, I have to go all the way forwards to Z.
(2) See my blog regarding updating Gracenote, which is the music database that is searched as songs are being played.
(3) See my blog regarding Infotainment Center tweaks. You have the European version, so make sure you only do the simple tweaks I identify if you are at version 56! Options L & K take care of the looping.
