Hi.
Perhaps a stupid question but I do not know what I need for TMC? Do I need a sowtware which support TMC or do I need GPS with TMC support or any GPS support it?

HI Goran,

To use TMC you need both Hardware and Software which supports it.

Looking at your location I'm not sure what services are available in your area - if any. I'd check this first.

I hope this helps. If you have any specific questions relating to systems just post and I'll do what I can to help.

Thank you. But how can I know if my hardware supports it? In fact I can not find any GPS which has under specification also TMC - that's why I thought that it depends just of software. So I persume that my holux 230 does not support it?

Yes you are wright. In my location there is no TMC - we have just one very beta version of TT. Crying or Very sad

There are 3 or 4 very specialist GPS receivers which also receive TMC - TMC is a different technology to GPS (radio compared to satellite), and hence most simply don't support it.

Hi Goran,

I'm afriad I know nothing about Holux so I'm not much use there.

The ones you might like to check into are :-

TomTom - TMC Via GPRS and FM TMC (due to be released soon)

And

Navigon - FM TMC

There are others but these are the two I have had experience of.


Hope this helps .......
