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 see compatibility list), traffic alerts appear to the side of your map, 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 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 a replacement GTM 70 antenna.

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 Garmin sat nav model.

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.

For futher help please contact us with your specific Garmin model number and we'll confirm whether the GTM 70 is compatible.

Garmin GTM 70 Digital Traffic Receiver Questions and Answers

Question: I've bought a GTM 70 and it doesn't work with my Garmin satnav. I think the satnav is faulty.

Answer: It may be that you need to perform a free software update via Garmin Express at the website. If you've purchased from ActiveGPS, we include the following note with the purchase:

GARMIN GTM 70 - Important Product Returns Guidance
Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation & Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.

Thank you for your purchase of this Traffic Messaging/Power Cable which has been supplied for use with your Garmin device. If you are unsure whether you need this GTM 70 for your Garmin please supply the serial number of your Garmin GPS and we will confirm compatibility. Products are not supplied for the purpose of testing a faulty satnav. If you think that you may already need to return this purchase please read the following before opening/use:

The Consumer Contracts Regulations allows us to make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss of value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you. You must handle the product, including the Garmin outer box and seal, no more than you might in a shop. If a product is returned in perfect condition suitable for reselling then we will have no hesitation in reimbursing you. Ask yourself, ‘would I have accepted this product if I had received it in the condition in which I am returning it?’ To ensure that you receive a full reimbursement we recommend that you return the goods in the same condition as they were received.

If the barrel of the cigarette lighter adapter, which is supplied protected by a plastic sleeve, is returned scratched or marked (from insertion into a vehicle cigarette lighter), or there are any other visible signs that the cable has been used, or it is marked or cut, we will not accept the return of this product and it will be returned to you at your expense (£9.99 shipping and handling to be paid by you prior to return). Similarly, if the outer Garmin box, the seal or booklets are returned creased, torn or marked we may not accept the return of this product. We respectfully suggest that you carefully open the bottom of the box. If you uncoil the cable, and it is therefore not returned factory coiled as received, it will no longer have the appearance of a brand new product. If a coiled cable is the only discrepancy we will make a deduction of £14.99 from any refund.

If goods are returned in an unacceptable condition, including the outer Garmin box, they will be returned to you at your expense (£9.99 shipping and handling to be paid by you prior to return). We record the serial number of each GTM 70 cable before despatch. Please do not return any goods until we have issued a returns number.

Question: I would like to purchase the GTM 70 Digital Traffic Receiver and Power Cable, to replace my GTM 36. Can you please confirm whether it is suitable and will function in Greece and will work fine?

Answer: We have spoken to Garmin UK and unfortunately they have confirmed to us that there is no DAB network/signal for the GTM 70 to use in Greece. If you were to buy the GTM 70 it would simply use the FM network/signal to receive traffic information, the same as your GTM 36.

Question: I have acquired a Garmin nuvi 2639LMT 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.

We are official Authorised Internet Retailers for Garmin. We sell genuine Garmin products, accessories and maps. We purchase from assigned Garmin UK distributors. We do not buy on the grey market and we do not sell counterfeit products. You can rest assured that by purchasing from ActiveGPS you will receive the full support of Garmin.
