No, traffic is available only in the region where you purchased your device. It's not a technical issue, it's a licensing/policy issue.
The exception to this is to use an external RDS/TMC receiver. This will give you some rudimentary traffic in metropolitan areas. Better than nothing, for sure, but not as good as TomTom's Live traffic.
@slliw The external traffic receiver isn't an extra cable. It's like the regular lead but with a receiver built in. See here:
Also, you mention lane assist -- just in case it wasn't apparent, lane assist and advanced lane guidance aren't related to traffic. Those features work regardless of traffic status. (Well, when ALG decides to work, anyhow.)
Have people had experience of using other systems navs like Garmin where the ALG works 100%?
I was going to buy Garmin over the 6200 but the lack of world maps put me off.
H VikramK....thought you had vanished of the face of the earth seeing as we have been ignored mostly over the last year and I'm sorry it's just not good enough that even now after over a year of complaints this fault has still not been fixed...you can say sorry as much as you want but all it is showing is that your teams are no good so why not get someone in who is capable of fixing this issue.
All that this is doing is showing how poor Tomtom are at sorting out customer complaints.....you really need to pull your finger out before you don't have any customers left...shocking customer services once again
