Hi gang.

I wanted to get the TMC receiver.

Does anyone know an Australian stockist?

When I log into my account at Garmin au , once i search for the receiver i end up out of the AU site and into the US one.

I am assuming i need the European version for Australia

Although it would be nice if this one is compatible

Can anyone advise please?

I sent an email to SUNA re the traffic compatiblity and was told that currently the 760 is not on the list... it may be an available function later down the track though as they have an agreement with Garmin..

I hope so... this is a function that would be VERY useful.

Sorry, I forgot about this issue, I spoke to Garmin, you are looking at December for the FM receiver being available for the Nuvi 760.

Well, it's almost January

There are billboards in Sydney with Garmin advertising 'Live Traffic Updates'.

I have looked and there is none of the usual suspects with the TMC receiver available for sale.


So, .. whats happening with it?
