This review is from: TOMTOM Micro USB RDS-TMC Free Lifetime Live Traffic Receiver Car Charger Vehicle Power Cable Cord for TOM TOM Start 40 35 30 25 20 VIA 1535 1525 1505 1500 1435 1425 1405 1400 WTE W T Live World GPS Navigator (PN 4UUC5B, 4UUC.001.05B, 4UUC.003.05) (Electronics)
I used to have a tomtom live, but found that parting with 50 per year to keep it was getting a little out of hand. I was lucky enough to recently get a tomtom via 135 with free lifetime maps..all that was missing was traffic info. Saw this cable and read the mixed reviews. I decided to try it. Obviously the live system is the best, as it updates every 2 minutes, using phone signals,tmc,rds. I have given this a quick try, and so far I feel its good value. It picked up the signals straight away. I tried manually tuning it to a local radio station, but it reckoned that it couldnt find it, however, if you leave it to auto tune it gets all the info anyway. Im on the M62 nightmare drive daily for work, and this can change from ok to a no go area in seconds. I think for a free service its pretty good. It gives you a heads up. Even when I had the live tomtom I would sometimes drive into queues just to see if it works (hey, im at work and getting paid anyway!!). In the following weeks i'll take it through its paces, but so far im impressed.
