According to TMC forum, the UK TMC is encrypted as well... not to say that the US TMC is encrypted by the same means... So, a subsription, perhaps?

On the other hand, the sirius TMC is definetely encrypted, their subsription runs about $5 a month, or so...

well, this is like collecting pieces of shattered china, that got scattered all over the place, in hopes to come up with a vase, or a shape of a vase...

While I totally realize that any development has stopped for the iBus cars, there are millions of vehicles on the roads worldwide that are using the iBus technology, both BMW and the others, like Rover, Mini...

Cars that are stuck in the traffic use a lot of fuel, pollute the air... all it would take, just develop a TMC receiver that would feed that info to the Nav systems - savings of the natural resources are enourmous... considering, that 3/4 of things are already in place, just piece them together...

One of those receivers is already available from BMW, obviously not for the US market, but nevertheless, it is available, so, tweaking that hardware or software and make it available to the rest of the world should not be a brainer... part # 69 90 0 029 763
