- What is TMC? What do you need in order to receive TMC?
TMC (Traffic Message Channel) is based on a news network. Traffic information is continuously recorded by the police and by automatic sensors along motorways. This information is delivered in a non-stop flow to the broadcasting corporations. They are digitally coded, classified according to roadway section and are broadcasted inaudible (over the RDS-Sginal). The coded data sets are converted by the navigation device (with TMC ability) into readable messages.
A TMC message provides details of a traffic obstruction's location and type, and sometimes also its beginning, duration or end. The messages are valid for only a certain period of time. A message is stored and can be recalled by the navigation device as long as it is valid. During a navigation the navigation software checks every message within seconds with the calculated route and if necessary calculates an alternative route.

A TMC receiver is needed to receive TMC messages. Many navigation devices and GPS receivers come with a built-in TMC receiver. Car charging cables with a built-in TMC receiver are also available for many navigation devices.
If the TMC reception is poor, it often helps to use a Y adapter for connecting the TMC receiver to the vehicle's external antenna.
