I thought there was only a single TMC provider in the UK, but maybe that's changed.
There's a setting on my DVD based system to let you lock onto a specific provider. I think you can lock by service name or by frequency (surely the frequency would change as you travel around the country.)
Does yours have a similar option?
No, it seem to be automated (I guess via the disk that's loaded).
There are now two TMC providers. iTMC shows as TMC_INFO
and TrafficMaster as TM_TMC
It seems that the frequency for Smooth (100.4) is actually an Alternate Frequency for Classic at Ridge Hill (Gloucester).
Since I live at the edge of the Peak District the signal from Holme Moss can sometimes get weak and the sat nav switches to Smooth. Before July it would then quickly switch back when it didn't find a TMC signal. Now it just stays locked but with no TMC data.
