Beware - Does not work properly in many areas
Posted by: Rich5432 from: Mpls, MN on
As of November 2011 with Garmin Software Version 3.0, the GTM 60 does not work in many areas of the country. As best as I can tell, the GPS units compatible with this device scan all available HD Traffic sources and pick the last signal scanned rather than the strongest signal scanned. If you live in an area of the country where this happens (like the Mpls / St. Paul area), your device will not work properly.
Garmin will not disclose when a fix will be made nor a timeline for a fix. If you do purchase a GTM-60, please check forums or with your local Best Buy store to make sure the GTM60 works properly in your metropolitan area.
My rating is based on that the GTM 60 does not work properly in many areas due to the GPS receiver software. The GTM 60 itself does provide the proper signal to the GPS and works fine which does not do any good in some areas of the country.

Good enhancement to the Garmin traffic functions.
Posted by: MacTravel from: Toledo, OH on
In a few situations we were already too far into the traffic problems to do anything about alternate routing or to have enough advance warning to not have to do some heavy braking to join into the backups. Then some times we were warned of congestions that had already cleared up. Most of the time it was worth having it added to the basic GPS traffic function.

Currently Excellent Price 02/10/2013

Currently, Best Buy has this item for almost 50% off MSRP. You can not beat that price anywhere. Check for traffic coverage location because the coverage roll out is not complete.
The GTM 60 is helpful in different states that I travel.

A store employee told me I need this item when I went into the store to explain that my GPS was not working properly. He said I needed this item, however my GPS still did not work. I ended up buying a new GPS. It is still a Garmin and I love it.

Great even for suburb driving
Posted by: Colind88 from: on
I don't really go into the city much, but even for suburbs, this works even better than the basic traffic receiver that came with my Garmin nuvi. I like how I receive far more traffic updates and receive them much sooner.
