Any advice greatfully received.
I currently have a Mio 168 with Navigon MN 5.2.6 on it. which I have been very satisfied with. I recently bought a GNS FM RDS/TMC receiver for it but as we all know Navigon doesn't support RDS TMC in the UK. My question is this, I am considering changing the software on my Mio 168 for something else but was wondering which software will support RDS TMC in the UK. I was looking at Destinator 7 and wondered whether anyone else had this on a Mio 168 and whether it was any good or not.
Cheers
Dave

I have a Mio 168 with the same TMC/RDS receiver and TMC works fine with Navigon 5.2.6. Do you have all the updates for this version? I am not sure they are still available on their website. It also works fine with MioMap v3.2.

I hope this helps.

Thanks diabeticpaul. Not too sure if I have all the updates. I only updated to version 5.2.6. recently. On the Mio 168 the icon turns green as if it is receiving traffic messages but as yet I have never received a message. Is there something else I should be doing?

Cheers

The Navigon website is still showing the update (2006). It sounds like an aerial problem. The RDS/TMC adapter is not picking up a strong enough signal. I am using a GNS splitter which uses the car aerial. There are many posts about TMC reception. Read them for many hints on how to improve TMC reception.

Regards
