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, Garmin, Navman, Mio, Uniden, Navigon and Pioneer. 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:

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.

For more information on compatible GPS units, including older devices see SUNA's list of compatible devices

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 ($129) includes a lifetime subscription to use the SUNA service and is compatible with Mio’s latest range.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
