Hello,

This thread is dedicated to log all information about RDS-TMC antennas information and details before buying something which is not working in your area...
1. The jack version (v1, v2 and v2b):
The v1 version :

The v2 version :

The v2b version :


These references are :
- V1 : 4v00.000 or 9v00.050
- V2 : 4v00.010.2 or 2V00.004.2
- V2b : 4v00.011 or 2v00.005
All of them are the Europe-Australia version working on FM band. They were dedicated for :
• Tomtom One 3rd Edition,
• Tomtom One XL,
• Tomtom GO 510/710/910
• Tomtom GO 520/720/920
• Tomtom GO 530/630/730/930

V1 and V2 shall be absolutely avoided, they are not working very well. V2b offers a very poor service. If you want to buy a RDS-TMC antenna, forget these 3 versions !




2. The jack version (v3):


The first TT version which could be recommended. One of the fastest working version. Note that there are 2 versions available depending on your location :
- 4V00.013 or 2V00.006 which is the Europe-Australia version working on FM band.
- 4V00.083 or 9V00.082 which is the North America version working on AM Band.

4. The combined car charger with traffic receiver :


The latest available version, also slower than the jack version but with no more cables in your car ! From my knowledge, there is two available version at this time :
- 9UUC.002.00 (part number on box is 9UUC.002.00 and part number on item is 4UUC.001.01) which is the part number sold in Europe-Australia.
- 9UUC.052.02 which is the part number sold in North America.

No clear information if they are the same. Note that if you contact the European TomTom support, they answered that these 2 parts are different and are only working on the continent where they are sold. But it could be a seller information in order to sell you more... And if you contact the North American support of TomTom, they will tell you that 9UUC.052.02 is compatible on all continents, Europe and North America... So we have to wait for further information from users !!!

Due to the USB connection, this device is able to work with all TT device but you will need to use the Navcore v9 to allow this receiver to work ! So if you are still working with v8 Navcores, you shall select another device or update your TT to the v9 !
