Sorry, head isn't working and didn't find this in the documentation...

I have just bought a TT One v3 with TMC. I am picking up the RDS Traffic info fine (TT antenna in a Focus windscreen bottom to top of right screen and across the top right to left if it helps anyone)

Anyway, no bluetooth, am I right to think the only way this TT receives traffic info. can be via RDS? No data from phone because no means of connection? What is the traffic info. subscription for then that they entice you to buy?

You do not need the Traffic Subscription as it won't work with your hardware, forget about it, this is for users with Bluetooth enabled TomTom products who want to pay for the service per year rather than use the RDS-TMC receiver.

Your receiver was purchased with the required lifetime licence to use the service in the UK, so there will be no additional costs - Mike

Thanks for that. Was a bit confused and obviously the Home software isn't clever enough (or maybe it is) to know you don't need to subscribe to this. Thank you.

Please, don't ever assume anything about this bit of software is clever, do yourself a favour and only ever use it when you really need to, i.e. map purchases, otherwise leave it well alone - Mike
