Garmin GTM 35 is an add-on traffic receiver and 12-volt power adapter for your
compatible Garmin nuvi GPS portable navigator. The GTM 35 delivers Traffic
Message Channel (TMC) information from NAVTEQ Traffic, including road conditions
and traffic delays, to your compatible Garmin GPS device. NAVTEQ Traffic
information is broadcast over the FM Radio Data System (RDS). When traffic
information is received, your Garmin GPS portable navigator displays traffic
delays on the map and uses the information to avoid traffic delays and find the
fastest routes. The Garmin GTM 35 includes premium traffic for North America for the lifetime of the product. The GTM 35
also acts as an in-vehicle power charger.
Note: The Garmin GTM 35 is an add-on device and requires
the connection of a compatible Garmin nuvi GPS portable navigator. The GTM
35 receives signals from the traffic service provider and displays that
information on your compatible GPS device.

100% Subscription Free Traffic: The Garmin GTM 35 with
lifetime traffic gives you 100% subscription-free lifetime traffic updates.

automatically after your connected Garmin GPS device acquires satellite signals
while receiving traffic signal from the service provider.

the Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you own the compatible Garmin GPS
device) or as long as Garmin receives traffic data from its traffic
supplier, whichever is shorter.
