    gabbe>you are correct in that TMC is traffic data sent over regular fm radio waves and some fm radios will be able to pick it up. However a much easier solution is to get a GPS device with tmc built in.

    Ok, I can answer my own q. Got following from mapfactor:
    >Hello,
    >you can use one of these TMC reciever - gns, navilock, BTT100, OpenTMC
    >protocol (Amaryllo). Many of them using bluetoth connection. If you buy
    >Bluetooth reciever to USB, you can use it as well.
    >Regards Nidrle

    What GPS with inbuilt TMC are prefered?

    I was given the following info today by Directions.

    Free patch is not available yet, hopefully soon.

    Main improvement is free MapExplorer with import ( this feature may not work with v6 data), routing point set saving, open TMC (not available in this country).

    I must tell you that 'sizeable' window is not there yet, it should be in v7.1, hopefully later this month.


    So the resizeable window didn't make it to this release which is a big disappointment. Also I don't really understand the point about MapExplorer. Does this mean that they've made a fundamental change to the way the map data is stored and handled or is it an additional tool?

    Problem is that I don't think the Windows product is there main focus... its just a by product of the main PDA PNA software and there for all the key items and features dont really get the attention they deserve.

    Terran, I'm sure that your correct about Direction's priorities.

    I guess that the reality is that there are not many of us who drive around with PC's in their cars. IMHO the rest of the world doesn't know what they're missing, but I guess that's life.

    I sent the above posting before checking my mail. When I did there was another message from Directions. See it and my reply below.

    Thanks for your reply and for acknowledging the difficulties that youíre experiencing. Please donít give up on the resizeable window. I know that there are quite a few people eagerly waiting for that feature.

    Best Regards

    Tomas, thanks for the info. The resizeable window is what Iím looking forward to, so from what you say it looks as though Iíll have to wait about another month.

    Best Regards
