You can configure TMC using following features:
Subscribe to TMC
To receive a TMC data from a source, which needs subscription, you need to subscribe to it. Tap
Subscribe TMC to subscribe. A new screen is displayed. Fill in the required details, tap the Web
site and enter details when prompted. Tap Enter code, and enter the received TMC subscription
code. Tap Done when finished.
NOTE: This button is displayed only if you are in a country where the subscribed TMC services
can be used with the help of the Travel Companion.
Recalculate to avoid traffic
You can enable or disable recalculation of the route during navigation based on TMC information.
Disabling the route does not prevent the system from using TMC data for route planning, but does
not trigger an automatic recalculation when the traffic conditions change during your journey.
Sort events by distance/type
The list of traffic events can be ordered by their distance from the current position, or by their type.
You can choose to display certain TMC event types in the Event list or choose All events to show
TMC radio settings
This screen shows the selected TMC source and allows you to change the radio settings.
Selected FM radio station
The name and frequency of the selected radio station is displayed. The signal strength information is
indicated by a bar.
The radio can be tuned manually with the plus and minus buttons, or it can be automatic if auto tuner
is selected. With auto tuner, the radio scans the frequency range, tests every radio station for TMC data,
and stops when the first TMC source is found.
If there are no radio stations broadcasting TMC data in your area, and auto tuner is turned on, the
receiver keeps searching for the radio station. You can see the frequency continuously sweeping across
the FM CCIR radio band (87.5-108 MHz). When you move to an area with TMC information, the indicator
shows the frequency, and detailed information for the TMC station.
Exclude selected station
If you wish to receive TMC data from a different radio station, tap this button. After the current radio
station is added to the list of excluded stations, the Travel Companion searches for another TMC station,
and skips the excluded station in future.
Show excluded stations
This button opens the list of excluded radio stations. Tap any of the stations in the list, then tap
to let the Travel Companion accept TMC information from this station.
