No TMC on that one.
tmc ?
No TMC on that one.

Well spotted. Halfords state in description TMC (Traffic Message Channel)

Sony website says no!
For anyone considering one of these it might also be worthwhile checking what the memory is on this as well. Halfords state 2gb internal and then further down its dropped to 512mb which ties in with the Sony site.
I thought about buying this but it doesn't come with an in car charger, which is daft considering it's essential to have one. As an accessory they cost an extra £20 and for £127 you can get a tom tom one.
Sony website says that this does come with an in-car adaptor, as do the specs on the Halfords site -
they may have the wrong model, below is extract from a review :-(

"The Sony NV-U52 will include 512MB of flash memory, while the Sony NV-U72T will be packed with 2GB. Additionally, you may use Memory Sticks for extra storage. You can also purchase a subscription to broadcasts of the Traffic Message Channel to alert you of things such as traffic jams. Both models will have a car battery adapter, a USB cable, an application data disc and a carry pouch in the package. A free Safety Camera indicator trial will also be included."
I've just had an email from Halfords to confirm this does come with an in car charger (bloke on the phone this morning incorrectly told me it didn't).
Seems a good deal, voted hot.:thumbsup:
I have the NV U50 & its been great, it cost £85 about 6 months ago but the TMC cradle cost £150 more so if this NV U52 has TMC included its a great deal for £99

This does not have TMC - see below (taken from Sony Website) - but seems like a good deal anyway.

Dynamic Re-Routing via TMC (Traffic Message Channel) NO
RDS-TMC via Cradle Built-in TMC Receiver NO
Free TMC Service NO
Premium TMC Service iTMC (UK) NO
Premium TMC Service V-Trafic (France) NO
The UK map on the U50 that I bought was years out of date. The village that I live in isn't even shown, despite being over 10 years old with 200 houses.

There has only been one map update issued by Sony which is over a year old now. The village that I live in is still not shown. This takes a whole day and £42 to download from Sony.

One tip - Backup the installed map when you receive this unit. It is not on the resource CD and you'll need to pay if you lose it.
Because of costly and outdated map, I have installed TOMTOM on my NV-U50and use tomtom maps. You can also configure the NV-U52 and NV-U70 etc models to use tomtom (search google).
Good value for money with tomtom :thumbsup: and you can install quite a lot of maps on 512mb of memory, let alone 2gb.

And use [SIZE="4"]quidco [/SIZE]to get a [SIZE="4"]4%[/SIZE] cash back while your at it :thumbsup:
As requested, see here on how to get tomtom working on this and other similar modelsby Sony:

I have nv-u52 and I don't know how to do it- any help anyone please?
