Here are a few tips for setting up your RDS-TMC for optimal reception.
Setting up your RDS-TMC receiver in the car
Note : When you set up your navigation device in your car, don’t block the driver’s view of the road.
Select your RDS-TMC connector:
|RDS-TMC receiver using USB connector||RDS-TMC receiver using serial connector||Active Dock Traffic RDS-TMC (GO x40, GO x50)|
RDS-TMC receiver using USB connector
RDS-TMC receiver using serial connector
Active Dock Traffic RDS-TMC (GO x40, GO x50)
My RDS-TMC receiver is set up correctly but I don’t get traffic information.
Check the following for optimal RDS-TMC reception:
- Is the correct country selected?
- Place the tip of the antenna as far away from your navigation device as possible.
Use the full length of the antenna for the best possible reception.
- Some athermic heat-reflecting windscreens and built-in windscreen heaters can block RDS- TMC reception.
Tip: You can test your RDS-TMC receiver by placing it outside your parked car to see if it can find a signal.
- If radio reception is poor, for example when you are driving through a mountain valley, RDS-TMC reception will also be affected.
