NOTE BY GPSPASSION - TMC will become available on Garmin units in July 2007, see details on page 3.


I spoke with a local GPS dealer today who was in contact with Garmin yesterday. FM TMC is coming to Canada! on January 1, 2007 thru Clear Channel. It will be initially available for Toronto and Montreal.

Estimated cost $11 to $20 per month.

Well it worked fine for me for a while (Tomtom One XL) and then the information started to be more and more unreliable so i did not renew my traffic subscription. Last year i got a new traffic subscription and i got a refund because the service for my one XL is discontinued...
One of my coworker have a new garmin with life traffic and map and looks like the traffic info is not quite reliable too... So i guess they need to work harder on the traffic info

Has anyone had anything new on this topic for Canada?

Would be nice to hear of updates if there are any.

Many thanks!

I came across this website that is crowd sourcing Canadian traffic using people to sign up as traffic probes using their cell phones.

http://ottawa.drivestraffic.com/about/

They are also offering a $25 gas card to the first 240 people who sign up.

Hello everyone,

Well the proof is in the pudding as I recently installed NavNgo Amigo software on my GPS which has a built-in TMC traffic receiver. Tuned it to 96.9 in Montreal and there you have it, a full complement of traffic information including incidents, flow and construction coverage.

This must be free traffic, but I am not sure who is the provider? 96.9FM is CKOI here in Montreal. I tried tuning to other stations but my GPS would not pick up any other signal.

Anyway, will keep you posted.



Hi again,

Found out with the same software that TMC is available in Ottawa also..I think the station was 106.1. Also tried it in Montreal with Becker Z302 software and it works like a charm on 96.9FM (made me avoid major traffic jams over the past few weeks!).

Take care

How can I check traffic FM station on Nuvi 765? And is there a way to change FM station if there are more than one stations available. I will appreciate your help. Navteq traffic signal keeps going up and down in Toronto area. There are days when I start from Wilson TTC station and drive all the way on 401 West and then Hwy 427 North without any traffic signal.

I am using Navteq trafic receiver with my nuvi 765t in Toronto area for last couple of months.
I have noticed that reciver is losing signal lots of time while driving around the city. The traffic icon turns grey. Is it just me or others having same problem.

There is also a (beta) trip planner for the TTC (Toronto transit):

It is a great site. I wish our GPS traffic providers provide this kind of fantastic traffic info.

Great find! Thanks! Will have plenty of uses for our outside sales staff (not to mention myself).

I met a guy last night who works on transmission towers, he said that there is a traffic encoder installed in the ckoi 96.9fm tower. It's a 307kw transmitter, I'm still getting spotty reception on Aut. 15 north of montreal. I don't know how to get into the diagnostics on my GTM11. Does anyone know the status of this transmitter? I read some old threads that they were negotiations between the two parties, but did they ever come to an agreement?


Wow, this is an old thread! I had forgotten about as the last activity was back in November.

"Traffic Encoder" could mean any one of TTN, NAVTEQ or MSN Direct. If you are having reception problems and are using TTN, then it could either NAVTEQ or MSN Direct.
