What more is there to say? Not just the info in the pack, but also the gismo itself - chocolate fireguards all.

Go get your money back NOW and buy a head self examining kit and a crossword puzzle to do on the M25/M11.

PS Also start listening to traffic news on the radio in your car - Radio 5 (MW 909 or 693) or local FM stations - they'll be just as good as the Tom Tom Traffic PLUS feature.

I bought one of these TomTom TMC recievers a few months ago. I drove around for about 3 weeks with the little orange disc in view but didnt know what it meant, not once did I see the green disc. Then I started reading the forums and realised it was the dreaded reception problem. I hung the unit out of a first floor window and got it working. Strange thing is when I refited it to the car it started to work and has been working maybe 70% of the time since. Im wondering if there is some sort of inteligence built into the software and now its found the frequencies that work it searches those first. Anyway I find its now usefull but waiting for my replacement unit from TomTom when they become available. Hopefully reception will improve and I will get some more coverage.
