Does the navigation on the 2019 Sorento SXL use live traffic updates for allowable route changes (if so how often updated) ?

AFAIK, all of the recent nav systems in the Sorento make use of Sirius/XM for the traffic data, and require the data subscription to their service.

I don't know how the system updates but it does get updates. I have been driving in my 2019 SXL and have seen the road conditions change as I was driving. I don't believe that SiriusXM has traffic date in central Indiana.

Yes, they do. You would be amazed at the number of 'probes' on the road and how many roads are covered. During the initial period that comes with the vehicle, and during any of the 'free Sirius/XM' weeks, even those who haven't paid for a subscription will see traffic data.
