Traffic clunky?

I mostly like my new S5. One thing my Iphone seemed to do better, though, is show traffic. I could push the home button, say traffic, and see traffic in my area. Unless I am missing something, with the S5 I have to hit the home button, which brings up the microphone icon, I then hit that, say traffic, and only get traffic in a small area. Then I press on the map, and it shows a larger area. 5 steps versus 1. Is there a better way?

How about just opening Google Maps? If you leave the traffic feature turned on, it will always show current traffic as soon as you open it. You may have to zoom out a bit. If you want to use voice commands, I know that you can tell Google Now to "Open Maps." I assume S-Voice can do that as well.
