Sports Flash and Traffic

So I have a 2017 Honda Accord Ex and the stereo has this sports flash. I can't find the info but how does this work and what markets is it available in? I'm in Cleveland Ohio and I do not think it is available here.

Welcome to the forum!

Sports Flash is an XMradio thing so you don't need to be in any specific market. Anywhere in the
US that you can get XM it will work.

Now the thing is that somehow you have to tell the XM receiver that you are interested in say the Cleveland Browns or Indians, Cavaliers. When they have a spectacular play, while being broadcast on the XM channels, it posts a message and allows you to hit a button and listen to the play. It's similar to the favorite song programming some XM receivers have. So if you are listening to Hootie and the Blowfish and the Indians make a spectacular play it'll alert you of the play then you can switch to that channel. Kinda neat!

If you already know all this excuse me for repeating it.

I would think that some papers you got with the new ride should explain HOW to do it.

Now the rub. Acura had this but only certain model levels offered it.

Do you know for sure that the EX allows the operation of this service?


This is for a separate XM receiver but it should be similar to what is in the car. pg 58 explains what to do.

Let us know if it works for you.
