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!

    Thanks for your time and advise. I did check to see where the service area for the FM receiver covers, and our area is one that is touch and go. The icon comes on the menu page but not all the time. Again, thanks for your response.

Go on I'net. Garmin Free Lifetime Traffic and Maps Upgrade. Register the unit (No matter if it's a gift or your purchase. Register 1st. Follow all instructions for same. The s/n is on bottom of the unit usually. P.S., you have to use a magnifying glass usually to read it. Same information is on the Units box that unit came in. Sometimes you just have to be persistent to register it and get then get quarterly upgrades. Garmin does not make it easy. If the unit comes with free Maps and traffic, Do NOT Buy the $100 upgrade for same. Most new units comes with them.

If the Garmin Nuvi is sold with "life-time updates" for maps & traffic - updates are available for download at MyGarmin.com once they are available.

A "life-time update" is coupled to the serial number of the Garmin unit. If the serial number does not match the box with "life-time updates" on it - it could be the Garmin Nuvi came from another box without "life-time updates".

Without "life-time updates" - maps are available for free within 60 days after purchase. A "purchase" is registered by the Garmin device if it detects a certain speed or when it's registered at MyGarmin.com - meaning the 60 day countdown starts. Without a "life-time update" for traffic - a traffic subscription must be bought for a country & timeframe. (ie a year).
