The TomTom RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver gets traffic information on the go, to your TomTom. For the one-off cost of the receiver you can get traffic updates and let your TomTom reroute you around congestion.

By simply connecting the TomTom device to the RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver, you will automatically receive traffic information via the TMC connection. Once a journey is planned, traffic alerts which relate to the route are clearly displayed in the traffic bar on the right hand side of the screen. When you tap the icon shown in the traffic bar, you will receive further information, such as the cause or kind of delay to traffic, such as an accident or traffic jam.

RDS-TMC is available in: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom.

This accessory requires at least version 6.525 of the TomTom application. Connect your TomTom device to your computer and use TomTom HOME to update your application automatically and for free.

any idea if this works with TomTom One V3 Europe?
#2
I was ordering quite few of them before. If it's new they ship the 4V00.013 which works with all new TomTom's including One 3rd Edition and Go 920.

It is cheaper than eBay ;)

sounds interesting - just bought my first ever sat nav, a tomtom ONE v3.. so why is this being voted cold?

Because the previous versions never worked very well :x Take a look at pocketgpsworld

I have TomTom 910 myself and it works fine with 4V00.010. A lot of my firends have newer TomTom's and 4V00.013 works fine with theirs as well. If you preffer to use your mobile and pay charges for this service, at the end of the day it is your choice.
#6
how can we tell which version it is from amazon then?

edit: read the description - model 9V00.017
#7
Can this be used with the - One V2? As on the tomtom website it only says One XL?
#8
Anyone knows if it can be used with a MIO P550 PDA?

Yes it is, and I have tried these with a 510 and ONE and they were complete pants I wouldnt buy one if my life depended on it check out the forums on PocketGPS I now have a 520 without the TMC receiver and its fine, trouble is these download the data the same as an RDS receiver does through a radio station and I dont know any Satnav company that has got this technology to work well in the UK yet

I had a TMC (RDS) receiver on my old VDO sat nav and it worked an absalute treat. Within about 5 mins. I could see all the traffic hold ups in picture form on the map and it alerted me in advance of potential hold-ups. So yes, Philips or VDO (which includes Renault, BMW etc etc had theres working perfectly well!
#13
This is a great price. Lots of other places are selling this for well over £40.

I paid £33 for this from amazon.co.uk back in early Jan and can confirm this is the newer version. I've not had any issues with it at all and it picks up a good signal in most places other than the odd rural area.

As mentioned previously, once you buy this, you do not need to pay anything for obtaining traffic updates. It's a one-off charge and that's it.
#15
TMC uses classic FM in the UK. So if you can't get Classic FM, this won't work. I can testify that the old ones were terrible. These should be better (assuming they are indeed the newer model. I signed up to the subscription based traffic system and it's about to expire. I might give one of these ago again...
#16
No worries. Heres some info on the device:

and if anyone is interested on the rds-tmc debate:

Cheers.

Had a read and decided it isnt worth it, the information it provides is usually wrong so by the time you've dodged all the imaginary jams you would have been there anyway.

I'm doing just under 1000 miles a week and have only ever been stuck in 2 really bad jams (stood for over 2 hour) which were a pile ups half a mile in front.

Its true that the information isnt always accurate, plus whilst mine is the newer version it still only picks up a signal maybe 75% of the time. I dont take the information that seriously unless it matches up with say motorway warnings (ie delays ahead). Id agree probably not worth it but this is a much better deal than I got - mine was £43

According to this review on Amazon it is but how well it works is debatable.

"TomTom RDS with tomtom one v3, 27 Oct 2007

I have found this item to be next to useless, only finds a signal about 10% of the time, incorrect traffic reports, (I had a reported delay of 1 minute real delay was 3 hours 15 minutes). Requires a very strong signal and in my experience only works on signals from classic FM. ALL IN ALL A VERY EXPENSIVE WINDSCREEN ORNAMENT."
#21
Yes, but was he referring to the previous or the new version?

I'm happy with mine. You have to remember that the device will only report whatever is available on the radio station - not exactly its fault if the info hasn't been updated!

If you're not happy with it, you could always ebay it.. £30 is mega cheap for the item.
banned#22
As I said earlier its pants I do 100k a year and it got out out of precisely 1 jam in 18 months
#23
I have a TomTom One v.2 - anyone know if this will work with it?
#24
Surely SHOWMAN, if your talking about 18 months, then you don't have this latest version released November 07? According to one of the reviews on Amazon it also works on Froth One (sic) my local radio station, so I'm going to give it a try.

I get traffic data from my phone, in the end I've turned the feature off. The traffic data is always out of date, showing you jams that were cleared a couple of days ago, or not showing the jam you find yourself in. The data is provided by TrafficMaster, so everyone gets the same data.

If it's not out of date, the level of data available for the alternative route minor roads, such as the North Circular, is so patchy, that you often get shifted onto an equally snarled up road.

Hold onto your money.

Wait for the forthcoming system that (annonymously) reports your GPS speed back to the Network and uses that to calculate traffic conditions.

This version works fine. The problem is that in some parts of the country the signal is not as good as it needs to be, so its really down to where you will be using it most. As far as I'm aware parts of the north west have problems, sorry i can't be more specific, you'll have to read up on pocketworldgps. I can't see it selling for much less than this price so if you want one nows the time.

Weaslespider- it won't work with your version, sorry, only the v3.
#27
what about the tomtom go300 , does it work with that?
#28
As this is from amazon use it carefully for a few days and if it doesn’t work return it for a full refund:thumbsup:
