TrafficMaster

Post by kayjas »

I saw a photo of a C5 with a cup holder to the right of the steering wheel. Exactly where my annoying trafficMaster sits. How easy would it be to install a cup holder here. Not sure if its available as a spare.
Cheers all

Never available as an accessory (but much needed IMO :-D ). The one you saw was probably a DIY job.

Cup holder would be a damn sight more useful than Trafficmaster.

Mine was out of funds even on the first C5 but it did used to nag at me and let me know I had to cough up some cash to get it to work - fat chance.

I have never, ever, seen one of their "Blue Boxes" so couldn't imagine it being much use.

Yep, they replaced them with yellow SPECS cameras instead - much more profitable !!

Did anyone ever come up with a definitive way to bypass the damn thing to stop it interrupting the radio?

Yes - shove a cup holder in there instead!

I was thinking more on the lines of identifying which wires go through the TrafficMaster unit so that they can bypass it.

Which makes it even more annoying that it can interrupt the radio for having the temerity to start-stop-start the engine too quickly. And then you have to listen to the whole pointless spiel of "To subscribe ring... yadda yadda yadda". Just shut-up and get out of my life.
