Traffic subscription code needed

I need to obtain my free traffic subscription code for my nuvi 265wt. It told me to go to www.garmin.com/fmtraffic to obtain a traffic subscription code. It said that the website will ask me to enter the Unit ID of my FM traffic receiver but I can't seem to find where to go to do that. Can you help me?

In Canada it 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.

How do I get free maps for my Garmin nuvi 1490t?


The only way you can get free maps is if your unit is a 1490LMT which is Lifetime Maps and Traffic. You would need to register your unit at www.garmin.com. You do have lifetime traffic because you say your unit is a 1490T.

If you don't have a lifetime map subscription, you will have to buy a lifetime map subscription or purchase new maps when they are released. The lifetime map subscription will save you money in the long run.

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.

Garmin 265wt I want to know if my garmin have a free lifetime traffic incluse


Yes, the nuvi 265WT comes with a lifetime license for US traffic. That doesn't guarantee that you have a station in your area that broadcasts traffic information, and you must use the special power cable (which contains the antenna) for it to receive anything. You won't see anything on the screen unless/until the nuvi recognizes a traffic signal.

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.

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.

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 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

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!
