RDS-TMC receiver usage in a different country to the one it was purchased in
Since moving to Oz, i have lost my Live services due to Oz taking down 2g services. I've been advised by TT cust support to look at the RDS-TMC receiver - However, it appears no one in Oz sells it. There could be good reason for that but i'm not getting far with TT support. Ultimately i have seen them for sale in other countries but it is not clear to me whether it will work in Oz.
I am seeing conflicting information regarding the use of the receiver - Which one is correct?
Note: You can only use RDS-TMC in the region where you purchased your device.
from the instruction manual:
Setting the country
If you are driving close to a country border, your TomTom
device may tune to a radio station from a neigbouring
country. If this happens you will only receive RDS-TMC
traffic information for the neighbouring country.
To avoid tuning to a radio station in another country, set the
required country as follows:
1. Tap the screen to open the Main Menu.
2. Tap TomTom Traffic.
3. Tap Select RDS-TMC country.
4. Select the country that you want to receive traffic reports
Your TomTom device searches for a radio station located in
the country you have chosen.
