TOM TOM TRAFFIC

I just purchased TOM TOM traffic for my VIA 130; however, it looks like it will not work on my device. The device says I have to buy an RDS-TMC device, but from this site it looks like this isn't working anymore in the UK. Can I get traffic to work on my VIA 130 with this subscription or do I need to ask for my money back?

    The VIA 130 does not have the Tomtom Trafic option, in fact you have to buy an RDS-TMC car charger receiver.

    RDS-TMC coverage in Europe
    Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom.



    Normally these are the radios that broadcast RDS-TMC if no radio no info.

    Thank you. Do you know if the RDS-TMC service is still running in the UK?

    I am annoyed that TOM TOM doesn't state that when purchasing the traffic option. I will take that up with them.
