    Hi
    Hopefully this isn't too dumb a question, but here goes.
    I have two questions really; 1) does the RDS-TMC work with this NC, and 2) Does this update the bootloader as well (or work without updating)?

    I've been tempted for a while to try a newer NC but don't want to lose the ability to go back to my current working configuration if I wanted to for whatever reason.

    I have a One (DeviceVersionHW=ONE (v8), BootLoaderVersion=55011,ApplicationVersion=8010ApplicationVersion=9369) currently on official NC 8.010
    and latest map UK+NI 890.4234 which works fine (thank you ).

    I use the RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver which also works fine with my current set up.
    I have made a full back up with windows explorer.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated, thank you.

    TMC works with every NC now that we know what files are required, however on some NC's the old V13 receiver (and older) are not fully working anymore.
    Affects not all devices and changing the NC often works fine.
    You'd have to update your bootloader for SDHC support but for the NC you should be fine.
    You don't go back - you make a backup using Windows Explorer (NOT TT Home!), that's called a backup
    If anything does not work out you delete all files and copy your backup files on the device, all back to the old.

    I did mention that I had made a full back up to do precisely that,

    What I was worried about was the bootloader getting updated as I thought that you couldn't downgrade that.
    My device has no sd slot so I wouldn't intentionally upgrade the bootloader for that function.

    So am I right to think the only way I would update the bootloader unintentionally would be updating through TomTom Home? ( which shouldn't happen as it doesn't offer me a new NC above what I already have)
    I just didn't know if updating the navcore also updated the bootloader using the method in this thread, which is what I wanted to understand before proceeding. Can you just put me straight on that?

    Many thanks for your help

    Home includes a bootloader for every NC that is for your device (and if needed).
    If you use a NC from a forum or patch a CAB yourself a newer BL could be installed if not carefull.
    All BL up to 5.5128 are considered to be safe for any TT as we never got any negative feedback in that regards.
    And in case it becomes necessary the BL can be downgraded.
    So you have nothing to loose with a working backup

    Thank you so much for the reply. I know I might sound a bit overcautious but with things like this I try to make sure I understand what I'm doing and there is a way to fix things if something goes wrong.
    Thanks again

    Doesn't appear to work with my GO910 and 9.430; did with 9.026 and 9.051 but your 9.430 is stable so I use it.

    If you want to have TMC working with the 9.430 replace the mctx.dat file in the root of your device with the one from the 9.051.
    It is a know problem to TT that older devices loose TMC reception on this NC.
    I guess your uninformative description of the problem means you got the traffic bar but even after 15 minutes still no traffic info, still searching for a station?
    If so the above should fix it.

    Nope, no traffic bar with 9.430 from "9.430 for GO models" in post #3. Unlike 7.910, 8.xx, 9.026, 9.051 which did show the traffic bar (and work).
