Got it on new on EBay from a seller in Florida. I mistakenly figured it was the USA model. It is not. The model number is 4V00.081

Anyone mistakenly have the USA version that wants to trade?

The device recognised in the UK as the current RDS-TMC device ends with a part number of .013
I am not too sure from your post is this a UK or US device but either way a UK device will not work in the USA and neither will a USA device work in the UK - make sure of details prior to trade - Mike

Speaking with the folks at TomTom, they said it is the European model.

Unless it carries the last numbers as .013 on the part number attached to the device near the connector it is of little use in the UK - Mike

My mistake - look here.

According to this the US one is 4V00.083

So, what exactly is the .081?????
