Hi guys,

I took my Evora month ago and claimed for the blackbird that was missing.
I received it and installed it in my Evor ( my2009 ) : it was not up to date so i dowloaded the files and did the upgrade.
Plus because it embeded the TMC i subscribed to the TMS Vtrafic french system ( 40€ around 35$ ) and nada!!!!

It never finds any valid TMC radio...

Had one of you this f...... thing working?
Do we need to had an extra antenna to make that function work?

Where are you located? I ask because I think North American map updates for Blackbird have been discontinued, but maybe new updates are being released in other regions.

I could not get the TMC to work on my Blackbird either. It was supposed to come with a free 30 or 90 day subscription.

Hi I'm in France, and i especially subscribed the french TMC system called Vtrafic, but nothing.
And for Europe/USA on the Naviextras site you 'll be able to find some map updates.
And on the Alpine site, you can find in the support section a zip file to upgrade the Nav system, but in the end, it deosn't change anything.
So you all thing i've been screwed and lost my 40€?
