Those were pretty good instructions that Garmin gave you.

If you have your owner's manual, refer to how to get into your settings. If you don't have the owner's manual, you will have to google it. Unfortunately, you did not provide the model number, otherwise, I would have provided the link to it.

Check to make sure the selected voice is one that says TTS by its name. Not all of the voices can do text-to-speech.

Yes, you do not have to enter a subscription code for this unit because it comes with a lifetime subscription. All you have to do is be sure you plug your adapter in first, and also be in an area where there are traffic broadcasts, when your unit powers up, you will see a small green traffic symbol in the upper left corner of the screen. this indicates that it is picking up the signal. If it turns gray, then you do not have a signal in that area. Again, be sure you are in an area that has traffic broadcasts, plug in adapter first, then you should be fine. Again, it is not necessary to enter a code. Good luck and have fun!

Check the information that came in your box. With my TomTom Lifetime Traffic and Maps, there was an "activation" number on one sheet of paper. I had to activate (per instructions) before I could enable the lifetime goodies.

Where do I go to register my garmin and get the traffic set up


Your Garmin already has the lifetime subscription on it and does not need to be set up. For the traffic icon to come up in the top left you need to have it plugged into your car power cord which has an FM receiver on it and you need to be where there is an FM signal. Not all cities have an FM signal but they are adding new ones all the time. If you do not see the traffic icon you may not be where a signal is yet. I have a 255WT and where i live does not have a signal but when I travel to other cities I find the FM signal and it has helped me a lot to go through traffic. For proof of your lifetime traffic go to the bottom of your menu page when it is plugged into your car power cord and plugged in to the power source. You will find a traffic icon. Click on it and you should see a lifetime subscription. You can also add other traffic subscription on this page if you are travelling to other countries. Hope this helps. Good luck!

When I bought my new Garmin Nuvi, I understood that it had traffic loaded on it. I do not know how to use it if it is on the machine already. How do I find that feature? Joyce


You must have the correct Traffic Receiver plug , its the car cigarrete lighter adapter it has 2 lights on the plug in one will be Green for power the other may be Red if Traffic is not subscribed yet, so you might have a green and red showing.

If you have already have Traffic once you navigate to where you want to go, and the Car Adapter plug has to be used, go to Menu...Tools...Traffic

You can also check when the Car adapter plug is used, Menu...Tools...Traffic it will say if you have the Lifetime Traffic subscription if not...the following will get you going

First you must subscribe to the FM Traffic .... Premium Traffis Subscription by Navteq-North American
Go to www.Garmin.com under the Extra tab you will see Services.... Traffic

I need to obtain a traffic subscription code for my garmin gps.. it tells me to go to visit a website which wil ask me to enter the Unit ID of my FM traffic receiver but i dont know where to go with that


Free traffic in Canada should subscribe automatically without any need to put a code in. It has to be connected by the adapter through your car's lighter, a small icon of two cars will appear near the top left corner of your map, and with it you can change to the traffic map.
When the icon is green you are in the area covered by the free traffic service.

I lost the manuel and would like to know if it has traffic control, and how does that feature work


You can download a copy of the owners manual from Garmin directly here. The device has the ability to receive FM traffic data to assist in route planning.

This feature is enabled by using an FM Traffic Receiver that is included - it is built into the power plug - and enabling the feature online or by calling Garmin. Information on the FM Traffic service is available here. Your GPS may have a complimentary period of service included - after which a subscription must be purchased to continue to receive the traffic data.

If you have unanswered questions, contact Garmin Support for fast, free help by your method of choice here.

Please rate this reply if found to be helpful. Good luck!

I have the garmin 255wt and the box said 255wt but the unit said 255w and the instructions were for a 205 but thru trial and error and the help of forums I came up with the solution that the power cord has to be plug in and in the area that has fm and when it asked you for the ativation code you dont need it for lifetime subscriptions it just works

Garmin 265WT - fm traffic


I called Garmin about the same issue. If you will turn it on and are in one of the 50 metro areas covered it will automatically receive trraffic updates. That is exactly what I did and it worked and I got the same message you did. You do NOT have to sign up, get a code, or anything. Just turn it on in one of the areas and watch for the traffic symbol on the uper left hand side.

Magellan 3250


I'm almost positive that they never come traffic ready. My Magellan came in the mail today, and the box had the registration code/directions on activating the live traffic.

From magellangps.com:

To retrieve the Subscription Code you should use a 20 Digit Coupon Code which is found towards the bottom of the 8 X 11 sheet of paper included in the box of your GPS that is titled "Magellan TrafficKit Service Activation".
The Subscription Code can be retrieved by following the below mentioned Steps:
  1. In a browser window, navigate to www.magellangps.com
  2. Under the "Products" option select "Magellan Traffic Service".
  3. Under "Traffic Subscription Services" click "Redeem a Subscription Coupon" Note: You can Purchase/Renew Subscription if the free subscription has expired by Clicking "Purchase a Traffic Subscription/ Renew a Traffic Subscription"
  4. Select the product model from the list provided
  5. Type your Email Address & Password to login to the Magellan Note: If you dont have a user account, Select "Click here to create an account"
  6. Click the option "Select" corresponding to the correct Product Serial Number
  7. Click the "Yes" tab to confirm the Serial Number
  8. Enter the Coupon Code provided in the box and click "Retrieve Subscription Code"
  9. Write down the Subscription Code to use it in the GPS for activation
