Your GPS and live traffic updates

Never get caught in traffic again, thanks to the SUNA Traffic Channel!

On what devices is SUNA available?

SUNA has partnered with a number of GPS manufacturers, including major brands such as TomTom, Mio, Navman, Garmin and Uniden. Not every GPS device from these companies is compatible with SUNA, but generally the newer models are. Look for the SUNA logo on the sales packaging to help aid your choice.

Some of GPS units include the required TMC (Traffic Message Channel) antenna and lifetime subscription in the sales package, while others require this to be purchased separately. For most GPS devices, the antenna is an external one that plugs into the unit, though some of the latest navigational units feature built-in antennas.

Keep in mind that many of the compatible models require the latest map updates to be purchased before you will be able to use the SUNA Traffic Channel. Some GPS manufacturers offer these map updates for free if your unit was purchased in a particular time frame; they usually incur a cost otherwise.

Below is a full list of current compatible models, including any required extra costs or additions:

  • TomTom GO 930 (TMC antenna and subscription included with GO 930 Traffic, optional on non-traffic unit: $149.00)
  • TomTom GO 730 (TMC antenna ans subscription included with GO 730 Traffic, optional on non-traffic unit: $149)
  • TomTom ONE (4th Edition) (TMC antenna and subscription optional: $149)
  • TomTom XL (TMC antenna and subscription optional: $149)
  • Mio Moov 370 (TMC antenna included)

  • Garmin nuvi 265W (TMC antenna and subscription included with nuvi 265WT, optional on non-traffic unit: $129)
  • Uniden TRAX 436 (TMC antenna included but subscription optional: $149.95)

SUNA is also available as an integrated optional extra on various new Ford vehicles. When purchasing the satellite navigational system ($2290), the SUNA Traffic Channel is included on the FG Falcon, selected FG Falcon Utes and on the entire Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) FG model range.

How much does it cost?

There are no ongoing subscription costs for using the SUNA Traffic Channel. If you purchase a SUNA-compatible GPS device that includes the TMC antenna in the sales package, using the service is completely free as a lifetime subscription is part of the bundle.

If you already own a SUNA-compatible GPS device but you need to purchase a TMC antenna, a subscription to SUNA will be included when you buy the antenna. For example, Mio’s retail package for a TMC antenna ($149) includes a lifetime subscription to use the SUNA service and is compatible with Mio’s latest range.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
