    GO740 US to EU

    Hi!

    Does anyone know if a US GO740 LIVE can be "converted" to a european one?
    I am asking because I have a US model, but I now live in Denmark, and I would like to get the TMC working, but for that to work I need to use a USB connected antenna, but this US model does not have a USB port, what to do?

    Hi.
    Quote from tomtom:
    By simply connecting the RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver to your TomTom device and the car charger, you will automatically receive traffic information via the TMC connection.

    x40 models does not have a USB port but... Active Docks do.

    Connect RDS-TMC to dock and enjoy all traffic info.
    or U can buy LIVE subscription. It does not need RDS-TMC.
    Check if Yours TomTom is connected to network in Denmark

    regards

    P.S.

    European RDS Receiver is different from US
    in EU - FM freq.
    in US - AM freq.

    OK, I'll try, I have bought an antenna for the european market, have not received it yet...
    But, my active dock only has 1 USB port, where will it get power when the antenna is connected?
