Where do you get the Website to put in the 265wt traffic code from the unit? It's not anywhere on the directed website!www.garmin/fmtraffic.com. This seems to be a repeated problem.

I found a step by step instructional guide for activating the traffic codes for the Garmin. Apparently you require 2 codes, and must activate the unit on your account. Check this manual follow the steps and Let me know if you achieve results.

I just bought the garmin nuvi 265wt. I tried to activate the free lifetime traffic that comes with the unit but when I touched the screen to enable the traffic it told me I first must go to www.garmin/fm...


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.

Code to start traffic


You need to plug in your unit in the car with the Traffic cord, once there go to Tools and look for Traffic
press Traffic and it will now give you a code....

Have a cordless or cellphone handy in car with you when you make a call to activate Traffic

If you dont see a phone number to call there, there will be one on the www.MyGarmin.com website.

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.

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!

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.
