    Post TomTom 720 Which RDS-TMC

    Hi, I have a TomTom 720 and would like to know which RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver to get.

    I have tried the TMC RDS traffic receiver 4v00.013 jack plug type that came with my 730, but the Traffic sidebar does not come up on the 720

    Any advice on what people are using would be great.

    Device code M6
    Device GO 720 - 2GB
    Navcon 8.351
    Map West_Euro v860.3101

    Thanks solti

    Hey Solti.....

    TT has sold few of the receivers....that I doubt there's many that would know the ABSOLUTE answer to your question.

    I'd suggest contacting TT [via e-mail] to get a deffinitive answer.

    I've yet to know/meet one single person here in the States that even own one.

    I actually own both EU and NA versions. The small piece of paper says 4V00.13 is EU and the other says 4V00.083 is North America; eventhough in both black oval shape imprinted with "4V00.013"

    I must swap the antenna for each individual maps, for example, 4V00.083 for NA, otherwise my 720/920 will complaint that RDS-TMC antenna is NOT compatible.

    I am going to try one of those new USB ones, USB 4V00.014, and see what happens.

    Good idea! USB-TMCs are more sensitive than older ones with jack-plug.
    I am not shure whether original NC supports USB-TMC. I can recommend this NC for your Go:
    Best NavCore for Go x10, Go x20 and Go x30
    This one supports USB-TMC very well.
