Hi All,

Have all these "TMC's working fine" still got the well known '1Min delay' problem or is it just mine - not much use when you don't know the exact delay Sad


My first TMC had to be returned as the lead between the plug and the receiver went open circuit and my 720 could not detect it, replacement works fine.

I took Darren's advice and bought a Carcomm mount Part Number: CNM-160. I think the constant pluging and unpluging every time I got out of my van may have damaged the lead, now I just remove the 720 from it's mount.

Draysoft.

The delay timing errors are down to the version 7 software, we are still awaiting an update to fix this problem - Mike

Has anyone tried the new one around Europe, do you get a license for Germany etc? Or are you limited to the country of first use?

If anyone's curious about what's in the latest version (V400.013), I couldn't resist taking apart the plastic bit.

Note that VCC is +3.3V, and it won't just click back together - you have to use tape or glue. Ignore the bright red/green bits - my scanner is crap.

The soldering on that one is a lot better than the one I have just wired up to my car aerial.
