The lifetime traffic is of the rds-tmc type and units with that T feature have a combo traffic antenna/car charger included in the package. There is no subscription price for it and, by the way, the traffic receiver works in Europe as well as in NA.

But 100% accurate? Nope. It's not as current or accurate as those models with LIVE traffic but the LIVE is subscription based.

As to lifetime maps, the M feature.... There will be in the packaging a sheet with an activation code which you enter when you register your unit on line. This code is kept on TomTom's servers and associates the code with your unit.
