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)

  • 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.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
