Lester Burnham is correct. It is the C510 with the GTM21 traffic receiver.

However, read a few of the threads on these forums re potential problems with receiving TMC transmissions before paying t ...

Yes, I have used the webdater and have the very latest software and firmware (confirmed by Garmin customer support).

I would suggest that your dad gives the traffic receiving part a good test as soon as possible. It is not a cheap optional extra so your dad is entitled to expect one that works properly! The very le ...
