    I think it is based on events in your calendar. You will need addresses. Also maybe frequent locations in Settings>Privacy>Location Services>System Services>Frequent Locations

    Hope that helps.

    For me it just kind of happened out of routine. I had Home programmed in there and after going to work/class every day for a few weeks it just started telling me how long it would take to get to that location or how long it would take to get home. I don't know how to actually trigger it though.

    Does it need to be turned on in settings>privacy>location services>system services?

    Yes. Apple does not allow you to view Traffic information unless you opt-in to it being collected.

    You don't need that turned on to get the notification centre's approx time to drive home etc.

    It's a feature of iOS 7.

    You have to set up your Home location for it to work.

    I find it doesn't appear all the time.

    Add your address as a bookmark and call it Home.

    I have my address set up on my contact so I think it just used that.

    Good info. I have my home, work, etc.. setup in my address book but it still never displayed for me. I sold my iPhone 5, may not work on the 4 or may be a glitch or something. I'll take another look.
