(Cross posting with Mio 168) Hi ! Just bought an external TMC adapter (GNS FM9) to use with the Destinator PN I am running on my Mio 168. Normal GPS setting for Destinator is COM2, 4800 Baud, NMEA, which it finds itself and can then be set. No problem. Plugging in the dedicated TMC cable, into GPS settings, turn on TMC GPS, Find GPS, the Mio "finds" a GPS setting (for TMC, on any COM port, including default) but when told to Set GPS, it then Cannot Find GPS. The adapter manual just says set Baud at 38400 (which the 168 normally doesn't accept, 4800 being the only accepted rate)and then try all COM ports. I have now tried many manual settings, including all available COM ports for TMC as well as a few combinations, to no avail. Any help/suggestions, please ?

THE REASON YOUR MIO 168 DOES NOT WORK IS BECAUSE TMC DOES NOT WORK IN THE UK. SEE USER REVEIWS FOR GNS FM9 TMC OR SIMPLY PHONE EXPANSYS. BE PREPARED YOU'LL BE MAD! REMEMBER THEY DIDN'T SELL IT , YOU BOUGHT IT ? UNREAL!

Thanks, but after I sorted the COM ports out, it works perfectly. I am glad I bought it, it has already saved me hours of sitting in traffic jams. Things not working is why I left U.K. I'm not mad.
