Traffic plus lifetime maps updates were advertised on my new TT2535. When I clicked the traffic icon, the message said I needed the RDS-TMC traffic cord/charger. The unit came with a standard usb charger to unit cord, plus the cigarette charger. I called TT to see if I was missing anything. I have already setup a mytomtom account, registered this new unit, and have downloaded a map. The rep said I didn't need a separate traffic cable, but needed to tell her the activation code to receive traffic. There was no activation code anywhere in the box. I called the retailer about this activation code and they were as confused as I was. Do I need a special RDS-TMC traffic cord to receive traffic? I am prepared to return this unit to the retailer tomorrow.
