Garmin GTM 70 Digital Traffic Receiver and Power Cable - £89.99

Garmin GTM 70 DAB Traffic Receiver

Receive live traffic updates and routing around congestion saving you time and money waiting in traffic jams with the GTM 70 digital traffic receiver.

The Garmin GTM 70 is the first Garmin sat nav traffic receiver to use the DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) broadcast network. All previous Garmin traffic receivers e.g. GTM 21, GTM 35 and GTM 36 have used the FM broadcast network.

The main benefits for using the DAB network is it allows for continuous updates and it has the capacity to receive significantly more traffic messages than with previous FM based GTM models.

What's more, as the GTM 70 traffic receiver is designed for use with the latest 2014 range of Garmin sat navs (scroll down the page or click here for compatibility list), traffic alerts appear to the side of your map (as pictured below), so your driving map remains onscreen. Garmin Traffic can give details about the situation, such as how many minutes of delay to expect and if there are any possible detours. The model shown below with splits screen traffic information is the Garmin nuvi 3598LMT-D.

The GTM 70 Digital Traffic (as pictured below) is designed for in-car use and includes a cigarette lighter connection at one end. This pushes into your vehicles cigarette lighter 12-volt power outlet and also powers your compatible Garmin nuvi, dezl or Camper sat nav.

Once connected to your compatible Garmin sat nav, the GTM 70's internal digital antenna receives the continuous traffic feed via the DAB broadcast network and relays relevant traffic information to the screen of your sat nav, thus giving you advance warning and enabling you to simply re-route around the congestion that lies in the road ahead. If the digital (DAB) signal is weak simply plug in the external antenna which is included with every GTM 70 purchased from ActiveGPS. If you lose this external antenna or need another one for a second vehicle you can buy the antenna here.

Please note: If you just require a vehicle power cable to power your Garmin WITHOUT any traffic information please find your Garmin model accessory page and simply buy the vehicle power cable only. Find your model here.

The GTM 70 traffic receiver includes vehicle power cable with internal digital antenna all built into the one cable. A separate and genuine Garmin external antenna is also included - pictured right.

Beware other sellers who may be selling the GTM 70 bundled with a non UK subscription. The GTM 70 is available in other world territories e.g. North America BUT with a different lifetime subscription. Buy the wrong GTM 70 and you could be faced with buying a separate subscription for the UK from Garmin.

Please note: Garmin nuvi models ending in 'D' or 'Digital' e.g. nuvi 3598LMT-D where the D stands for Digital Traffic Receiver - these models would originally have included the GTM 70 digital traffic receiver in the box.

Models ending in a just 'T' e.g. nuvi 2577LT would have likely been supplied with either the GTM 35 or GTM 36 which is a FM based traffic receiver. You can ONLY upgrade the above models with the GTM 70 digital.

Garmin GTM 70 Digital Traffic Receiver Questions and Answers

Question: I have acquired a Garmin nuvi 2639LMTĀ from a family member and I need a traffic cable that was the OEM cable that was sold with this unit, to give traffic alerts. Could you please give the cable name/number and a price including shipping to zip code 01915?

Answer: Unfortunately we cannot supply you with the cable you seek. Why? We are a UK based retailer selling Garmin stock and accessories destined for the UK/European market. All of the vehicle power cables we sell with incorporated traffic subscription e.g. GTM 70 - includes traffic subscription for UK/European use ONLY.

You will therefore need to purchase the cable you require from a Garmin retailer with US destined stock to receive traffic subscription for North America.

Additional optional accessories

If you don't want the expense of the GTM 70, but you still require a traffic receiver for use with your compatible Garmin sat nav then you should consider the GTM 35/36 Traffic Receiver instead.

The GTM 36 like the GTM 70 provides live real-time traffic updates directly to your Garmin sat nav, but rather than using the digital broadcast network (GTM 70), the GTM 36 use the FM broadcast network instead. View the GTM 36 here.

However if you don't need traffic information at all, then Garmin do make an in car charger specifically for your nuvi, dezl or Camper sat nav model that doesn't have the in-built traffic receiver. You can find accessories for your specific Garmin device by starting here. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
