As title, the little TMC indicator is always red, never seen it green.
Is it because I don't live in the city or is it faulty?
sat nav works ok.
any advice?

There are a few threads here regarding getting into the SatNav diagnostics section. Once there you can watch the system rotate round the radio stations frequencies trying to pick up a valid TMC 'provider'.

It's either not finding a 'provider' or it is but that station is not transmitting.

Surprising as quite a few FM stations are enrolled into the scheme.

TBH I only use the built in traffic as a backup now. I'm running a Garmin 2597LMT linked to their SmartLink service that comes in via my mobile. That traffic updates every 2 minutes compared to the built in 15 minutes and covers considerably more roads.

AFAIK Inrix provide the Garmin traffic and you can get a free mobile app to see how good it is.
