      I purchased the GTM-60 because it is supposed to give more detailed and up to date traffic information than the power supply cable that originally came with my DriveSmart 60 LMT. It certainly works receiving traffic information but I'm not sure at all it's any better than the cable which came free with my device. It's also supposed to receive weather information but except for one time in the month I've used it, the weather page on my Garmin has been blank One suggestion if you buy this, do not pay any attention to the instructions which say you have to register the GTM-60 on the Garmin website for it to start working. The web page it listed had no place to register it, I called Garmin and waited on hold for over 30 minutes to be told, "Oh, I don't know why they still have that 'register thing' in the instructions. You don't have to do that, it'll just work fine without it." She was right, so just toss the instruction leaflet in the waste basket and simply plug it into your unit.

      Beware - Does not work properly in many areas

      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.

      I have the Garmin Drive Assist 50LMT and love it. Went to buy it again as a gift for someone. The 51LMT is the replacement for it. After giving it as a gift, the recipient told me there was not any traffic notifications. I found out I had to buy the receiver for this model to show the traffic. You cannot get the traffic on the 51LMT without the traffic receiver cord. I purchased it and they told me it now works well. Wished I would have known earlier.

      Seems to be almost perfectly accurate

      I bought this for my Garmin Drive Assist 51 GPS device. In the Washington DC area traffic is a mess all the time, and this seems to know the best way to get from A to B. There are alternatives to this, such as a subscription through Garmin, but this item supposedly has the shortest interval between updates, which is what I wanted.

      RF Cable for GPS

      First let me say, I'm not happy with Garmin for forcing you to buy an additional cable for $75+ in order to get traffic without using a smart phone and your data plan. That being said, it works pretty good, but isn't totally consistent. I really wanted to have traffic and this is the only choice for me, since I don't use a smart phone, away from the house. So it's adequate, but not fabulous.

      Good enhancement to the Garmin traffic functions.

      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.

      Traffic cable. Needed item for Garmin GPS your not told about it when you buy GPS. You think traffic is built in but it's not. Works fine with the cable. Seems like a way to get more money from you. Can't believe Garmin would do that. Used Garmin products for years. Will be a consideration the next one I buy.

      The Garmin Traffic receiver works by letting you know when a traffic situation is up ahead. It does not show live traffic, just a traffic situation (problem, accident). We use this with our Garmin Drive Smart 51 LMT-S. Both the Garmin GTM 60 Traffic receiver and Garmin Drive Smart are quality products.
