I am in the process of selecting a car to replace my three-year-old Audi A2.
One of the must-have features for me is a satellite navigation system with
RDS-TMC traffic information for dynamic re-routing. The BMW 1-Series offers
this but as far as I can tell the Audi A3 does not.
I would be looking to buy a car with the DVD Satellite Navigation System
Plus. From what I have read this unit supports RDS-TMC but due to licensing
issues the data disc does not inlude the necessary data to decode TMC
messages in the UK. This renders the TMC function useless.
Can anyone confirm that my understanding is correct?
If it is then presumably the TMC function could be enabled at some point in
the future if a disc with the codes included were to be published but there
would be no guarantee that this would ever happen and if it did it would be
additional expense (probably £150+).
