Our take on the Kenwood GTM 10

by Zak Billmeier
Kenwood

Stay ahead of traffic incidents, including those caused by construction, accidents, or emergencies with Kenwood's GTM 10 traffic tuner, powered by Garmin. Just plug it into your compatible Kenwood navigation receiver, hook it up to your FM antenna, and you're ready to go.

The GTM 10 receives real-time traffic information on conditions along your programmed routes in major metropolitan areas. If an incident occurs, your navigation device will deliver an audible warning, then search for an alternate route to keep you from getting stuck in a jam. Traffic information is broadcast on a separate band so you can still listen to your favorite FM radio stations, including HD Radio™ broadcasts.

The GTM 10 includes a free 3-month subscription to Clear Channel's Total Traffic Network service; subscription fees apply afterwards. Warranty: 1 year.

Features

Overview: The Kenwood GTM10 is a Traffic Message Channel (TMC) Receiver for select Kenwood navigation headunits and add-on navigation modules. Once you activate the TMC subscription, this traffic receiver will begin to receive real-time traffic data right onto your compatible Kenwood navigation headunit's screen, providing quick access to alternative routing using Garmin navigation. When a traffic message is received, you can see the event on the map-screen of your Kenwood navigation headunit and change your route to avoid the traffic incident. The on-screen map page of your compatible navigation headunit will display a "diamond icon" when there is a traffic event of medium severity or high severity on your current route, or on the road you are driving. If you press this icon, your connected navigation headunit will create a detour route for you (if applicable) so you can avoid the traffic event.

Note: A subscription is required to receiver the Traffic Message Channel (TMC) service. The GTM10 provides a 90-day subscription which is automatically activated when the GTM10 first receives a traffic signal once connected to your Kenwood navigation unit. To renew a subscription, go to Garmin's FM Traffic Website at garmin.com/fmtraffic.

Traffic Coverage: TMC data is available in a fast-growing number of cities throughout North America and gives prompt, accurate notification of accidents, road construction, police, or emergency action, etc. - so you can visually monitor traffic flow and, if necessary, avoid traffic tie-ups.

Note: Check totaltraffic.com/coverageareas for areas covered by FM RDS TMC service.

Compatibility: The Kenwood GTM10 is compatible with 2008-up Kenwood navigation headunit's and add-on modules.

Installation: The Kenwood GTM10 FM TMC Traffic Receiver installs between your compatible Kenwood navigation headunit and your vehicle's antenna cable. The GTM10 consists of two Fakra connectors and comes with a female motorola adapter cable, as well as a male motorola adapter cable that allow the GTM10 to be installed in series between your vehicle's antenna and your Kenwood navigation headunit. The adapter cables plug into the GTM10's Fakra connectors, while your vehicle's antenna cable plugs into the female motorola adapter cable of the GTM10, and the male motorola adapter cable of the GTM10 plugs into the antenna port on your Kenwood navigation unit. The GTM10 also features an attached 5' cord terminated by a mini-USB type-B connector which needs to be plugged into the mini-USB/TMC port on back of your Kenwood navigation receiver for content, control, and power transfer. If the attached 5' cord is not long enough, the GTM10 comes supplied with two 6.5' mini-USB extension cables. The GTM10 FM TMC Traffic Receiver features an integrated self-adhesive mount and comes with four wire-ties for cable management.
