Overview: The Pioneer
ND-TMC10 Traffic Tuner provides real-time traffic information from Total Traffic
Network to your compatible Pioneer navigation receiver. When the ND-TMC10 Traffic Tuner receives updated traffic information (via FM RDS), a compatible Pioneer navigation receiver will overlay the traffic information on its on-screen map and also display detailed text information, when available. When you are
traveling along a route and there is traffic information on your current route,
the system will detect it and ask you if you would like to be re-routed, or
suggest another route automatically.
Note: To receive Total Traffic Network traffic information on your
compatible Pioneer navigation system, you must be within a Total Traffic
Network coverage area.
Compatibility: The Pioneer
ND-TMC10 Traffic Tuner is compatible with the following Pioneer in-dash
navigation receivers (as of 2/8/2013).
Coverage Area: The Total Traffic Network service is designed to be
primarily a freeway service, used on limited access highways across most the
United States. Secondary roads may have coverage for some incidents, but not
with flow or congestion information.
Note: Coverage areas are affected by reception limitations of the
FM network as well as other factors, which may affect the availability of
the unit to receive FM broadcasts.
Free Subscription: Total Traffic Network service
subscription is included free with the ND-TMC10 Traffic Tuner.
Installation: The Pioneer ND-TMC10 Traffic Tuner module feature three
connections to plug the unit into your compatible Pioneer in-dash
navigation-multimedia headunit. The traffic tuner module features an attached

also features an attached 12" cable terminated by a female motorola plug and an
attached 12" cable terminated by a male motorola plug. Your vehicle's antenna
plugs into the female motorola connector of the ND-TMC10, and the male motorola
connector of the ND-TMC10 plugs into the head unit's antenna jack.
