How does Drivesmart's traffic function actually work?

Hello folks,

Drivesmart's power cord does not have traffic dongle, instead, it claims that the unit has FM reception (or something like that). I wonder, in that case, instead of using its power cord, if I use USB cable attached to a phone charger, will I still get traffic information?

Many thanks

    No, the cable is the antenna for the receiver that is built in to the device.

    This is similar to the question I have posted for the TA-20 and my nuvi 2597. in "Schematic (or pinout) for the TA-20".
