Question? Is traffic alert available where you live? If not then you will not be able to get it. Traffic alert is available in certain places only, and usually cities with a population of couple million or more. Hope this helps.

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.

It does not alert me of traffic jams


¹Lifetime traffic extends for the useful life of your Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you own a compatible Garmin GPS) or (READ THIS---)----> as long as Garmin receives traffic data from its traffic supplier, whichever is shorter. (AND THIS------>Traffic content not available for all areas. See http://www.navteq.com/rdstraffic for traffic coverage areas and www.garmin.com/traffic/fm/navteq.html for program License Agreement containing complete terms and conditions.

Sounds like either the system is not getting the updates or else the updates are not being provided, but either way something is not happening someplace. Or maybe you have the traffic system shut off because it was annoying you one day.

Hope this helps

My Garmin nuvi 265 was working fine until 2 weeks ago. We got a screen message saying that the XM traffic was not supported, and then noticed that the unit no longer could be charged using the car...


The traffic receiver is in the car charger cable. The charger should have a red light on if it is getting power. If the light is on and the unit is not charging and you have no traffic, the charger cable is bad. If the light is off, then either the fuse did not fix the problem, blew again, or is somehow not sitting properly in the charger. Another thing you can check is by using the unit in another vehicle. If it works fine there, then the charger is not making good contact with your vehicle outlet for some reason. You will probably have to buy a new traffic receiver charging cable.

Lifetime traffic feature no longer showing on screen.


Hello,

If you have noticed this in your area and your 12v cigarette lighter plug in powered and charging the unit then unit may need a firmware update, do this using garmins WebUpdater Software. Also traffic is not covered in all areas so if your travelling you may be in an ara where this feature is not supported.

Hope this helps!

My 265WTS says to subscibe to the traffic reportsI have to file the unit's I.D number. Where do I do that?


Hello,

your nuvi will receive its traffic updates through an FM channel that requires no subscriptions. The receiver is located in the 12v power cable so aslong as you are powered you should receive updates.

Hope this helps!

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!

Tomtom still charges but traffic receiver stopped working


I'm using the TomTom Go 730T - I think this is the latest and the last TT with Traffic because TT stopped supplying this option. I'm having the same problem from time to time but a reset helps. Just press the Reset button and after restarting the traffic option is back. Janos
