I know this is probably somewhere else in these forums, but I heard somewhere that TMC was being broadcast on FM stations, anybody picking it up on their GPS, if so, how good it, what does it do (does it alter your route to avoid high traffic areas.) and WHERE is it (is it only major CBDs, or does it go onto freeways and highways.). I'm interested in getting one but I wanted to see if it was actually on in Australia yet.

I believe TMC is available in Vic but you have to pay for the service.

There's a tidy review here.

Test Broadcasts on 97.3 MHz in Brisbane and 106.5 MHz in Sydney have begun with a view to launch in mid-2008. Adelaide and Perth late 2008. Apparently it will be $129 for a 3year subscription.

It is interesting that Cnet mention life time subscription if manufacturers add that to their cost. I would do that as an option without any doubt as it would then be suitable for short term thinking customers and long term thinking customers.
