    Default TMC Receiver for CD70 Navi

    Can any genuine experts tell me if my 2006 model year Signum Cd70 Navi has a TMC receiver built in at time of factory assembly?

    If yes, I believe I need a Trafficmaster subscription to receive the TMC code? Or is their an alternate provider in the UK?

    Thanks

    The CD70 has twin FM receivers so that one receiver is always tuned into the TMC broadcasts on Classic FM, even when listening on medium wave.
    Trafficmaster has nothing to do with TMC and no subscription is required as the satnav disk contains the enabling codes. I've had my Signum with CD70 since November 2004 and the TMC still works, unlike the original Trafficmaster units in older Vectras that expired after 12 months.

    Thanks I also read a thread on another CD70 topic above this one and I got the detail I was missing there. Although I have a 2006 model Signum registered Sep 05 I only have a 2003 map CD so as per the other thread whats why I don't get the TMC's to appear.

    Thanks very much

    I am going to buy a newer CD ebay

    Don't buy one yet! Someone has taken your 2005 CD with TMC before you took delivery of the car. I would go back to your Vauxhall dealer and ask why the correct 2005 CD with TMC was not supplied. My Signum was delivered in November 2004 and had the correct 2004 disk with TMC. A colleague at work took delivery of a brand new Astra with the CD70 installed as a paid for option and he too was supplied with the 2003 disk without TMC. I suspect the original 2005 disk had been quietly swapped while in the dealers by someone wanting a new disk and/or TMC. The language CD provided from July 2005 with the Satnav disk should also have the updated software which makes a big difference to the performance of the unit. I would print my comments out and take it with you to the dealer as this could be a scam happening at Vauxhall dealers to acquire updated disks from new vehicles which is worth £120.

    I called my supplying dealer under a Network Q deal and he told me a few people enquire about 'old' mapping disks in new cars. Apparently thats the factory inventory as suuplied - a 2003 maping CD a model 2006 car built in Aug 2005!

    I am writing to Network Q to ask for the full Vx line on this. Nowhere in the world do you buy old verison software 'as new'!

    Thanks for the input

    You might find this press release from iTIS who provide TMC data and licence it's use with the car manufacturers of interest.
    iTIS Statement
    It clearly states that TMC service as standard will be available on all Vauxhall models fitted with factory installed satellite navigation. It is dated July 2004.
    The new shape Astra was the first Vauxhall to have the CD70 Navi fitted before July 2004 and although TMC capable only had the 2003 CD supplied without TMC until this announcement when the 2004 CD was released with TMC.
    Your car came off the production line with a 2005 CD and somewhere between then and your purchase it was changed for a 2003 CD.
