I've looking for this everywhere and happen to check buydig. This beats their previous price , though it included a 32GB SD Card.

It says clearly in the description that traffic is included, please don't spread misinformation.

Outsmart traffic jams or slowdowns by avoiding them altogether with timely alerts that suggest alternate routes to help you steer clear of construction zones or accidents ahead. Garmin Traffic comes ready to use right out of the box, thanks to the included traffic cable; no need to pair your navigator with a smartphone for traffic information.

I have the exact unit. To enjoy full traffic separately you'll need a $70 retail cord. The Garmin GPS GTM 60 HD Digital 3D Traffic Receiver Cable is not included. So think again because you are wrong.

In order to receive Traffic, either the Smartphone Link App installed on a Smartphone or the Garmin GTM 60 Digital 3D Portable Traffic Receiver with Lifetime Traffic Subscription in order to receive Traffic.

https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/612620

The GTM60 is listed as an compatible if not needed for traffic it wouldn't be listed.

If you search for the TA20 cable that is included (according to buydig) on ebay you get this info:

TA-20 charging cables both charge compatible GPS units and enable live traffic information to units with a built in traffic antenna (model names that end with the letter "T").

Chargers are manufactured by Garmin and are compatible with the following GPS units (IMPORTANT: For this cable to enable traffic, your GPS model name must END with the letter "T" [ example: Nuvi 2597LMT ]. If it has a "T" but ends in the letter "S" [ example: dezl 780LMT-S ] it will NOT work for traffic but will remain functional for charging):

This is model 65T

It doesnt matter anymore as the coupon is not being applied at checkout (at least for me)

GTM 60 and TA20 both support traffic data but there is a different, google it for further details.

I got my unit from this deal yesterday, it does come with a TA20.

"The GTM 60 is the Garmin GTM 60 Digital 3D Portable Lifetime Traffic Receiver for receiving the Garmin HD Digital Traffic.

The Garmin Universal Vehicle Power Cable 010-11838-00 is labeled as a TA20 cable which is a vehicle antenna/power cable that is used with the Garmin GPSs with built in Traffic receivers.

Some built in Traffic receivers have the HD Digital Traffic which is denoted with the "LMTHD" suffix on the units model number.

If the GPS does not have the built in HD Digital Traffic receiver, then the GTM 60 will be required to receive HD Digital Traffic where it is available.
For areas where the HD Digital Traffic is not available, the GTM 60 will receive the Garmin Traffic."


As I said in post #4 "...to enjoy FULL traffic separately you'll need a $70 retail cord..." This unit does not have the built in HD Digital Traffic receiver.

Not one place in the post or at buydig in the ad does it say that this has HD traffic.
This has the normal traffic receiver built-in just like my Drivesmart 5 LMT does, I have the same TA20 cable and I get Traffic reports here in Minneapolis.
Full traffic?
This does get traffic info natively with the TA20 cable just like the ad says

The TA20 does not receive HD Digital Traffic it only receives Garmin Traffic. HD Digital Traffic is updated more often.

https://itstillworks.com/accurate...18647.html
"...Frequency of Data
Since the HD Digital Traffic service is updated most frequently – up to every 30 seconds – it is the most accurate of Garmin's traffic services in terms of having the most updated information. The Garmin Traffic service, in comparison, is updated about every five minutes, and the Live Traffic service updates about every two minutes. Therefore, the HD Digital Traffic service is likely to be the most helpful when there are sudden traffic changes or accidents that slow traffic..."

This is what I meant when I said in post #4 "...to enjoy FULL traffic separately you'll need a $70 retail cord...".

Nowhere did this post say that this deal has HD traffic, there are people giving the impression that this does not receive traffic reports and it does.
If someone wants HD traffic that is a extra cost option, but is not needed to get traffic reports.
