    Hi @EdTh-GO5100

    Do you mean Traffic or Cameras. Traffic does not require a subscription but Cameras do after 6 months.

    The status of the order must first be "Completed". It can take up to 48 hours.
    If it is "Completed" and you do not receive it within the next week, please contact support.
    You can check the status in your account on the TT homepage.

    Sometimes it happens that the service is not assigned to the serial number of the device. However, this can also be corrected by the support team
    I have described how to contact the support here:
    If it is activated, you should find it in the device under Menü/Einstellungen/Updates und neue Elemente auf dem Navi Display.
    Or you can look in MyDrive Connect to see if it is available for download.
