Will a garmin gtm 20 charger work with a garmin nuvi 660 gps


Yes! The GTM-20 is a charger with a built-in traffic receiver. The charger plugs into the cradle for the Nuvi 660 and then the Nuvi 660 snaps into the cradle.

However to receive traffic with the GTM-20, you will need to purchase a subscription, either yearly or lifetime. The traffic receiver receives traffic information from FM radio broadcast stations, which broadcast traffic data.

Haveing proplem to activateing the FM traffic in myGarmin 1490T,if you have a plone # I will call that #..


Hello,

If you are plugged into 12v power and you are in an area with coverage you should be receiving updates to your nuvi, since the FM traffic receiver is built into the cigarette power there is no activation process or code necessary.

Hope this helps!

Need traffic code


Hello,

The 1450 dosent use a traffic code system, it uses the 12V cord as a traffic receiver if you didnt purchase a 1450T you will not have this receiver. It can be purchased separately if wanted here is a link. www.gpscity.ca/garmin-gtm-25-fm-tmc-portable-lifetime-traffic-receiver.html

Hope this helps!

Where do I go to register my garmin and get the traffic set up


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!

I lost the manuel and would like to know if it has traffic control, and how does that feature work


You can download a copy of the owners manual from Garmin directly here. The device has the ability to receive FM traffic data to assist in route planning.

This feature is enabled by using an FM Traffic Receiver that is included - it is built into the power plug - and enabling the feature online or by calling Garmin. Information on the FM Traffic service is available here. Your GPS may have a complimentary period of service included - after which a subscription must be purchased to continue to receive the traffic data.

If you have unanswered questions, contact Garmin Support for fast, free help by your method of choice here.

Please rate this reply if found to be helpful. Good luck!

I bought the Nuvi 1490 which should have come with live traffic. It has never worked and I can't add it to my GPS


This is from Garmin's website, www.garmin.com, regarding the Nuvi 1490T. If you haven't already done so, you might want to check and make sure you are in an area that does receive traffic coverage.

¹Lifetime traffic extends for the useful life of your Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you own a compatible Garmin GPS) or as long as Garmin receives traffic data from its traffic supplier, whichever is shorter. Traffic content not available for all areas. See 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.

I Purchased a Garmin GPS 265WT and a liftime FM TRAFFIC subscription but I can Not Activate it. Do I need some other sort of device to make this feature operate


According to page 32 and garmin's website, the traffic subscription comes as part of the package and automatically activates when the GPS receives a satellite signal and is connected to the FM receiver (the car adapter).

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.
