Garmin GTM 10 Traffic Receiver

Save drive time, gas and your sanity by adding traffic services to your compatible Garmin with the help of the GTM 10 traffic receiver.

Avoid Traffic Tie-ups
GTM 10, an FM TMC (Traffic Message Channel) traffic receiver, is a permanently installed device that connects with your car radio/antenna system (professional installation required). It receives digital information (where available) on traffic and road construction tie-ups and sends it to your compatible Garmin navigator to offer an alternate route. TMC data is available in a fast-growing number of cities throughout North America and Europe, and gives prompt, accurate notification of accidents, road construction, police or emergency action, etc. — so you can visually monitor traffic flow and, if necessary, avoid traffic tie-ups.

Receive Real-time Traffic Data
In most areas, depending on the service provider, TMC traffic broadcasts are continuous — there's no waiting for scheduled traffic news updates or random alerts. With the GTM 10, you see traffic developments in real-time, as they happen, so you can make the right decision sooner. Because traffic broadcasts are received via a "silent" FM data channel, you can still listen to music or news programming on your car radio without interference from incoming FM traffic data transmissions. Professional installation is required.

GTM 10: Because you have better things to do with your time

Traffic services are available only in select cities where coverage exists. A subscription may be required to enable traffic service:

* Throughout most of Western Europe, basic TMC data is a free public service, accessible through a number of providers.
* In France and the UK premium service requires a subscription, and your GTM 10 comes with a lifetime subscription to TMC in the UK.
* In the U.S., a subscription to the Total Traffic Network is required.
