    I see in some screen shots floating around that besides the weather and calendar in the notification screen you can show how long it takes based on current traffic to get to a destination? Id like find out how to go about doing that? thanks

    It "learns" automatically after a while apparently.

    You need to have an entry in your contacts for yourself that has your home address in and set as your info on the Siri options. Once that is done if location stuff is turned on over time it will track where you've been and learn daily things like work. After a few days\week or if you are away from home it will then start to show you how long it will take you to get home.

    You can check your location history by going to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Frequent Locations.

    I've got a contact under my name that has various info such as home address, work address and which of my contacts are my wife, mum, dad, the kind of things Siri uses. Then go to Settings > General > Siri and set the "My Info" field to be that contact you have made for yourself.

    Unfortunately my work address is 2 mins walk up the road from my home address so i dont get travel info for work to home but it has come up when i've been further afield.

    I have iOS 7 for about a week and it doesn't show any traffic conditions. I have frequent locations on, I have my work and home address on my contact info, but I got no information.

    It takes a few weeks to learn your driving patterns. Give it at least another week
