Hello, I have a Garmin nuvi 3790T GPS and also the cable with built-in FM receiver. How can I receive traffic alerts? Do I need to purchase anything? Technically I am a novice, hope you can help. Thank...


To make it work, buy a subscription on a traffic alert service (RDS - TMC) available in your region/country at garmin.com. For crossborder service buy the traffic service there too.

Its possible to buy a lifetime variant - meaning it will stay active for your receiver.

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!

I bought a Garmin /Nuvi 265wt do I need to suscribe to receive traffic reports


Many Garmin nuvi GPS units that are traffic capable come with a complimentary 1 (or more) month trial of the service. After that period is over, a subscription must be obtained to continue to receive traffic reports. The GPS will continue to provide routing and mapping without a traffic subscription however. Only the real-time data will be missing without a subscription.

Pay close attention to which traffic service you get. The MSN traffic service will be going away in the next year or two. The FM traffic service appears to continue to grow. Phone a Garmin Customer Service Rep to discuss your traffic subscription options and possibly active your choice with them over the phone.

Please rate this reply - good luck!

I Purchased a Garmin GPS 265WT and a liftime FM TRAFFIC subscription but I can Not Activate it. Do I need some other sort of device to make this feature operate


According to page 32 and garmin's website, the traffic subscription comes as part of the package and automatically activates when the GPS receives a satellite signal and is connected to the FM receiver (the car adapter).

Our garmin product, Nuvi 465 T is telling us to go to www.garmin.com/fmtraffic to get a subscription code, so that we can enter a unit ID to get a free subscription to FM traffic. Every time we go there,...


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!

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.

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
