    I have a RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver for my Go 510. I have had it for about 2 years. The main unit windscreen mount fell off and the weight of it pulled the wires out of the small container where the circuit board is. I can see 4 little solder points and have 4 wires poking out of the cable.
    Anyone know if I can re-solder these and if so, in what order they need to be connected?
    Thanks

    Is it the windscreen dock thats broken or the actual plug on the RDS receiver?

    In either case its not going to be easy as the plug and socket are not available from spares shops, the connectors are rather TomTom specific - Mike

    It sounds to me more like the wires have pulled from the "egg" half way down the RDS-TMC cable, Mike.

    I've got an old non-USB receiver somewhere. If I can find it I'll see how easy it is to get apart and if I can without wrecking it, I'll check the wiring to the PCB.

    If its the wires out of the "Egg" then the following should help:

    J4 RED
    J5 GREEN
    J6 ORANGE
    J7 BLACK
