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.

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 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!

Traffic subscription code needed


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.

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.

Code


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!

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.
