A little delay in info but better than nothing...

 

Still, drove all the way from FL to NJ and this device did save me time.

Gives you alternate route options when traffic or construction is ahead

Not real time, if the accident has been there for 15-30 minutes you'll know

Great

 

A definite if you live in a bigger city that has the FM signals.

No traffic signals where I live. Not Garmin's fault though. A little on the high priced side for what it is, but works well

Garmin GTM 12 FM TMC Traffic Receiver

 

The unit sets up completely by itself, just plug it in - doesn't get any easier. When traffic is in your path, the GPS will say "traffic ahead" and offer to re-route you, which works nicely. I am disappointed that it will not work unless the external...

Super-simple setup, great integration with GPS

Will not work without external power, only seems to track freeways and not any major surface streets, works only in selected major cities
