Currently no Garmin products (AFAIK) support TMC, and because Garmin products are sold globally, I doubt that TMC will be supported in the near future as TMC (AFAIK) needs to be tuned to a specific RF channel that will be receiving it. There's only one FM station that broadcasts TMC at the moment.

Most TMC systems are sold across Europe, and each country uses a different radio frequency for their TMC (or multiple TMC) feeds.

As such, most TMC solutions will search the FM radio band for TMC signals, and hence the single unit will work across the whole of Europe.

However, as a non-US standard, and what with Garmin being a US company, I doubt it will appear soon.
