Hey Toggle, I have done all that, however the issue is I don't have the option to purchase SiriusXM Traffic. I can purchase radio no problem, hence the reason I called the call center and yes they are useless. They insisted that my radio is not traffic capable when I know for a fact it is as I have seen it work while I was in my Treg driving around the city. I am off trial, and currently have no subscription.

I have gone as far as signing up with a US Account, and interestingly enough with my US account I get Canadian content, after a discussion with the online chat feature on the website they told me that the reason for this is because my radio is a 'Canadian Receiver'. So the good news is I now have another free trial through the US site, bad news is they still would allow me to add traffic. haha.

Update: 24 Hours after signing up for my Free Trial with SiriusXM USA, I decided to give it another try via the Online Chat feature from My Account and my Receiver had been converted into a US Receiver(whatever that means), and they were able to add NAVTraffic to my subscription. It is now up and running, thank you to all those that helped along the way! Based on my experience the people who are the most competent at Sirius are the people who works the online chat. If you can't see the subscription option online don't bother calling in just chat them.

sorry to revive this thread, but how does one get a US CC from Canada? I too had traffic, must have been part of a free trial because SiriusXM Canada seems to know nothing nor do they believe my vehicle is supported, despite saying so on their website...I found the service useful and want it but can't quite figure out how to do the back end address CC stuff...

I actually just went through this recently with my 2017 and was quite successful following the OP's suggestions. I used my Canadian VISA credit card to pay and it went through without the bank questioning it. So its possible with a Canadian credit card even. Love having the traffic service!
