Wow this is amazing! The new ios6 maps app do not show traffic anymore even though I chose " show traffic". I don't know if the fact that I live in Canada has anything to do with it! This sucks!

It shows traffic different than on Google maps. Instead of a street being red if there is bad traffic, an icon on that stretch of road appears. Maps also only shows traffic in major cities.

hmmm...it works for me. When I got stuck in traffic, I just said to Siri, "traffic" and she provided this.

It is showing traffic. The yellow means moderate traffic. The red broken lines like on my screen shot means heavy traffic. No color means light traffic.

yes did that. I think it's just my location It does not cover traffics.
Is it on standard or hybrid when you "pull up" the bottom right corner for settings? Mine does that on hybrid. On standard, it's like it should be.

The first day I could not make it show traffic no matter whether it said show traffic or not. I gave up and added google's website icon which does show traffic just like the original app did. After reading this thread I checked again and now it shows the broken red lines which I swear it didn't show originally........? :)

Google Maps showed clear roads as green. Apples's maps just show the road as standard color if there is no traffic on the road, red lines for traffic. It's working, just different than what we're used to.
