Yes the RDS traffic is fine for many users, hower it differs from the SIM traffic. RDS uses the signal broadcast from the radio stations which is fine in many cases, but sometimes you can be in a jam as the broadcast can be slow being sent. So you might find that a jab is cleared alrady but the signal does not say it in real time.
One the other hand, the live traffice is obtained from TomTom via the Vodafone networks so can adjust live when mobile SIMs move from cell to cell and location from transmitters and receivers know this....e.g. your smartphone has location built into it- yes?
So tomtom is able to send this info to the units or smartphone live or within minutes, so it is better. Also you will note on many motorways and major roads, the sensors on the bridges also send information to units. My old Vectra had traffic info provided for a licence fee. Handy but not perfect

Sorry if this is in the wrong thread, couldn't work out the right spot.
When patching Europe_990_8036 with latest FA (from The Maverick, this website) I get the error:
"Incomplete Map(s): Europe-115706"
I have d/l the maps from three different sources (in the Maps thread, two multi file ones and one .rar - all being reliable sources with previous map versions) and consistently get the same error with all combinations of the three maps and using FA "raw" then options 9 followed by 1. No joy.
To have the same problem with maps from three different sources seems more than a coincidence. Anyone else had this problem? What is the solution?

Does sound a bit strange but they probably all originated from (are mirrors of) the first download which may just be corrupted. I'm guessing you haven't "nested" map folders within folders and have tried running F/A from within the map folder itself and even tried alternative F/As too?Please do not just post "thanks" but use the "thanks" button bottom/right or the reputation star "*" bottom/leftS i m p l e s

My version I took not from this site (not from our suppliers), and directly...My scan tool shows that everything is in order. Size-3140270кбт. (I can not verify, do not have a TomTom now with big memory)

You would not have got a link for Europe_990_8036 since it dose not exist, and there is no such thing as Europe-115706.
If you look at the 990 Europe maps, there is not such thing as a 8036, or anything close.
All the 990 maps are -1011xx anyway. As for 15 hours for a download? You using a wifi link with hardly any connection?
I use filefactory and Kilroy links for maps. Takes a max of 12 mins to download, even if 6 files in the download.
I have copied the Europe maps to SD Card and run FastActivate, then run using TT Home. All are fine
So, lets see where you are going wrong and let us help you Mate
The nearest I see is
64 7F 07 5E C2 56 A3 FF 56 96 FF 56 8A BA C9 74 Europe-101141.meta ; Europe 990_8306
And that works perfectlyOne day, someone might make things work perfectly before release. Sadly not in my or your lifetime. At least by finding problems and sorting them, we are still alive.
