Message on Nuvi -- help??


A couple of days this past week (Not every time I power up my Nuvi 760) I got a message 'your traffic subscription is about to expire. Then 2 instructions after that: (1)click here for more information, (2) do not show this message again.

When I hit (1) it says: no traffic subscriptions to display. ???????

I do have the traffic alerts cable plugged in that came with the Nuvi. Is that a paid subscription?? I need to renew it??


I suspect it is the same as my 660. You get a limited free trial and when that runs out, you either pay the annual fee ($60) or tell it to leave you alone.

Nuvi 660 -- and not upgrading it or maps until Garmin fixes long-standing bugs/problems, and get maps to where they are much more current, AND corrected on a more timely basis when advised of mistakes.

Checking Traffic Subscription

With the traffic receiver plugged in, you can go to Tools> Settings > Traffic and the subscription information should be displayed.

You usually receive a free 90 day subscription that started the first time you had the nuvi connected to the traffic receiver. After that, you have to purchase the subscription on the Garmin website.
