I just bought a Mio 269+, sold mainly on the low price, full European coverage, and TMC integration. I'm starting a new job which involves 80+ miles on the M25 each day, so something that avoids the jams strikes me as essential.

Though I've searched extensively, I can't find much information about the TMC functionality on this unit. I'm assuming that it works in the UK but want to know for sure before I shell out an additional 59 on the TMC receiver (and presumably more for a Y-Splitter to improve reception).

Any comments or experiences with TMC integration (or just the Mio 269+ in general) would be greatly appreciated!

According to mio's hp, TMC is not available in France AND UK.

MioMap is a version of Navigon, and even the new Navigon 5 does not support TMC in the UK, as far as I can tell from reading other forums Navigon would not pay the licence fee to incorporate in it's current version.

So no TMC in MioMap for the UK or France.

This appears NOT to be the case -- I bought the adapter and I'm picking up a signal in many parts of the country. Need to buy a Y-adapter to wire it into my external aerial, as the internal one provided isn't terrible effective.

Can anyone recommend a source for the splitter in the UK?

MatthewClement,

Is the TMC functionality working on your mio then, or can you just see it's 'receiving' the signal? Is miomap re-routing, or are you also waiting for the new sw?
'friad i can't help with the splitter, but if you find a source from somewhere else can you post the link here please?
Finally (!) did you pay full whack for the reciever...?

Thanks,
