The Garmin
20 FM TMC Traffic Receiver
receives Traffic Message Channel (TMC) information
broadcast over the FM radio data system. When a traffic
message is received, your Garmin GPS device displays
the incident on the map and can change your route to
avoid the traffic incident. For coverage areas, refer to the
Garmin Web site at http://www.garmin.com/fmtraffi
NOTE: The FM traffic receiver and GPS
device must be in data range of an FM station
transmitting TMC data to receive traffic
NOTE: Garmin is not responsible for the
accuracy of the traffic information. The FM
traffic receiver simply receives signals from
the traffic service provider and shows that
information on your Garmin GPS device.
