    Default TomTom RDS-TMC antennas

    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 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.

    Key negative :

    3. The USB version :


    More recent version, but slower than the jack version. Note also that there are 2 versions available depending on your location :
    - 4V00.014 or 9V00.101 which is the Europe-Australia version working on FM band.
    - 4V00.084 which is the North America version working on AM Band.

    Key negative :
    Poor sensitivity compare to v3
    Very slow synchronization after boot after reset (14 mins)
    No synchronization on 107.7 in France (highways)





    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 !
    Key positive :
    Simple to install
    Simple to use
    No more cables in your car
    Fast synchronization after normal boot (15 secs)
    Real worldwide version (tested with GO x40 version and navcore 9.058, and with GOx50 version and navcore 9.430)

    Key negative :
    Poor sensitivity compare to v3
    Very slow synchronization after boot after reset (14 mins)
    No synchronization on 107.7 in France (highways)
    V9 Navcore mandatory
    Not working with GO x50 version (with navcore 9.061 but works with 9.430)




    5. The dedicated dock for GO x40 and x50 :

    The latest available version, as faster than the jack version but with no more cables in your car ! Unfortunately only working with latest GO x40 and x50 versions. From my knowledge, there is only one available version at this time :
    - 9UCB.001.00 which is the Europe-Australia version working on FM band.

    Key Positive :
    Simple to install
    Simple to use
    Short cable for antenna
    Very good sensitivity
    Operating even with no power supply

    No fees to pay
    Ipod connection and audio output integrated

    Key negative :
    Price
    No North American version available (tested : not working in North America)






    6. The dedicated version for GO 1000/2400/2500 :


    - 9UUC.002.01 which is sold in Europe-Australia for GO 1000
    - 9UUE.052.00 which is sold in North America for GO 2400/2500
    Not tested yet…. May be a worldwide version as item #4.




    7. Alternate solution, non TomTom : The GNS Traffic box:



    Key Positive :
    Simple to use
    Very good sensitivity (the best option)
    Fast synchronization (faster than V3, less than 10 secs)
    No fees to pay
    Still working even if you are far away from transmitter (up to 30 kms)

    Key negative :
    No USB version
    More complex to install


    9. The combined car charger with traffic receiver :


    The latest available version in micro USB, also slower than the jack version but with no more cables in your car ! From my knowledge, there is only one available version at this time :
    - 9UUC.001.21 / 5UUC.001.33.3 / 4UUC.001.05B (this latest PN is the one mentioned on the device itself, the others are on the package)

    Working in Europe and in USA (tested with GO5100)

    Key positive :
    Simple to install
    Simple to use
    No more cables in your car

    You have 2 versions :
    FM9TT-Y DIN ISO RDS/TMC Receiver & FM9TT-Y FAKRA RDS/TMC Receiver

    They can be used on your GO 910 if you have such connector :
    Attachment 7967

    From my knowledge, it works with :
    ONE v3
    ONE XL
    GO 510/710/910
    GO 520/720/920
    GO 530/630/730/930

    Thanks, polotdi, for a superb informative thread. Just to add for further information purposes that I agree after testing with my 920T that the best antenna with regards to performance in my part of the UK has to be your list no.2 the jack version v3, part number on item = 4V00.013 - part numbers on box Art. no. = 9V00.017 and Part no. = 5V00.108.3. Greater sensitivity and the fastest one to synchronise. One strange anomaly that I've discovered when testing this version is that for some unknown reason even although my device is fully charged it finds a signal a lot faster when the device is powered by the car charger compared to when its not being powered up. After reading your thread I took the plunge this week and spent some hard earned cash on your list no.4 the combined charger and receiver. Exactly as stated by you, it is less sensitive and a great deal slower to synchronize but has the distinct advantage of less cables to play about with and no fumbling about with rubber suckers on the windscreen. For the benefit of this thread I can confirm with regards to the European version part numbers that there are a couple of versions available i.e. a micro usb version and a mini usb version depending on what connection your device uses. This can be confirmed by browsing the usual online market places and retailers. I assume that mine is the current latest V2 version which is described on the box as the Tomtom Drive Easy Traffic Receiver. This version comes with a mini usb connection on the lead but also includes a micro usb adapter in the box thereby covering most of the models available. To the layman this can be very confusing when searching for this product as without prior knowledge you could end up without the latest version. I've discovered that several high street retailers are still selling/stocking the older versions and selling them at a dearer price than the cheap price which can be obtained if you know where to look for the new latest version. Furthermore, some online retailers do not state whether they include a micro usb adapter with their new versions so buyer beware! Anyway, for clarification purposes the part numbers for the current latest european version with micro usb adapter are as follows. Part number on the item = 4UUC.001.01.02 and on the box Art no. = 9UUC.002.00.2 and Part no. = 5UUC.002.00.4. Hope this is of help and doesn't cause any confusion.
