How to receive RDS-TMC

To receive the RDS-TMC signal, your device needs a built-in or an external accessory RDS-TMC receiver. A third-party external RDS-TMC receiver might not be compatible with your TomTom device. You can purchase a genuine TomTom RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver here:

Alternatively, you could consider a device with TomTom Traffic services included in the purchase.

* Your TomTom device comes with regular software and fixed speed camera updates and seasonal (4 times per year) updates for maps. To download these updates you need an active internet connection via Wi-Fi® or a computer with access to the internet. Your TomTom device also comes with regular traffic and mobile speed camera services. To receive these services your device needs to be smartphone connected, or equipped with a built-in SIM including Data. All of these services and updates will be available as long as your TomTom device is fully operational. Fully operational means that the device is able to receive software updates, service updates, content and works with current accessories. A device will not be fully operational when one of these can no longer be received by the device or is no longer available. As our map and navigation software technologies evolve they may require newer hardware technology to support this. In case the hardware is no longer compatible, updates will not be possible. Services and updates can only be used on the device they have been purchased with and cannot be transferred to another TomTom device. In order to fully benefit from available updates, please register your device by signing into MyDrive Connect.
