It sounds similar, at least.

It worked fine for me.

Thanks for the info, elan2s

Does anyone have any clue as to which subset vM are providing? (I.e. is it as simple as GATSO/TRUVELO only?)

Well, Mike, you did encourage me ...

I previously mentioned that Id discovered that the Maplin jacks had faulty connections, so I was thinking of trying again with a simpler (than the DAFT antenna ...

OK folk - forget that last request. I have now had confirmation that there is indeed 'a problem' with the viaMichelin version of the database.

Has anyone else checked the content of the recent viaMichelin files?

As far as I can tell, the actual content of each of the five files within 4.104, 4.102 and 4.084 (the August release) are all id ...

Over on the viaMichelin forum you'll find a thread on the X-950T and TMC. There are two issues - signal pickup and routing. Some of us have found that even with the supplied external antenna we get ...

I have now had a little time to explore a little more - both theoretically and empirically.

Theoretically I discovered that the daft antenna (DAFT = Daft Antenna For TMC ...

Sorry about the length, but I think I can now distill a fairly short message.

Knowing now what works (for me, at least) and what doesnt, if I were to do it again Id go straight to the t ...

Well, I think Ive gone as far as Im going to. And success, of a kind. What a saga. Are you sitting comfortably?

After finding that the draped mains cable worked better than anything else so fa ...

I think I've sort of kind of like almost got something like a solution. But it's a bit bizarre, and probably not replicable. But when I've a moment I'll describe it, if only for a laugh.

Will do. But better do some work for a change. This is becoming an obsession. I'm not even convinced about the re-routing. When I did recently have a good signal and indeed received advanced warnin ...

We meet again, glidem

I had the same problem. Terrible, almost always non-existent, TMC reception. Problem made worse because I have my X-950T mounted out of casual sight, inside the binnacle. By ...
