    Traffic Reports

    Is there a native traffic reporting system built into navigation/CF ?

    It would be useful to have traffic speeds and accidents shown over the GPS navigation (something like Google maps does on a phone).

    this is possible with the free TMC support in the EU if you are using a GNS TMC USB device, you can get this device, set the TMC port in Centrafuse, and you should be up and running...

    you can get the GNS 9833 that comes with GPS also, but it can only be used for the TMC part, so might as well get the model that is TMC only...

    support for the US for the same TMC signal is coded and working, just having license issues with Navteq USA and ClearChannel...

    as for internet source, this is something we would like to do and plan to in the future...

    I live in the US... so do these licensing issues affect CF users even though you coded for it? Will I need to get a separate license for TMC to work?

    we have to get the license from Destinator and things are moving slow with Navteq and/or ClearChannel due to the fact of how small our volumes are, they don't really care to work with us at the moment...
