Car Charger Cable for TN765T

This may be covered somewhere in this forum, but I'll ask anyway.

Does the cable that comes with the Motonav have a specialized wire that picks up the traffic frequency like the Navigon units? I want to pick up an extra car charger cable, but not sure if it has to be an OEM part or can a generic cable work?

    I think you are asking if there is an embedded antenna inside the 12v power cable sheath. I believe there is. Other power cables will work with the Moto cradle and as long as the cradle is powered then TMC is active and scanning FM frequencies. Getting a lock may not happen without an antenna present. IF you are somewhere in close proximity to the FM station transmitting tower you may be fooled into thinking a different power cord is working, but once you leave the area the signal drops and you are SOL.

    You may want to read through these threads at the Motonav support forum.
