    Default Peugeot 508 RT6 - RDS-TMC in Ireland

    Hi all,

    I have a Peugeot 508 with the RT6 unit at SW version 2.21.

    In the UK the RDS-TMC functionality works fine, but does not do so in Ireland despite a TMC service being available (provided by TrafficNav, who I understand provide similar services for some other European countries).

    I've updated the UK map database to 2015.1, is there anything else I need to do to enable this functionality here?

    Thanks in advance,
    B

    Hello,

    You can put the mapping 2016.1 version, you're late.
    The question is whether other people with RT6 have the same problem in Ireland ?

    Exclamation This is a licensing issue

    Spoiler: readme
    Why do people always beleive things can be cured with a download?

    TMC is a FM (this is a radio frequency band) data service. That means, the TMC is a commercial entity which has to be licensed (read: bought) by the radio stationss.
    Consequnetly, the license to decode the messages has also to be bought through a license.
    Citroen and Peugot have never obtained a license to decode the TMC messages from TrafficNav. Hence, no TMC with PSAs cars in Poland, Slovenia, SLovakia and Ireland, among others.
    Reason: Royalities are high, yet sales are low is the repective countries.

    More Info: Citroen hotline, that's where I got i from.

    I'd like to add that ONLY Garmin has yet licensed TMC by TrafficNav in Ireland, aFaIk.
