If so, then you'll be interested in OmniaTMC Beta 2, which adds TMC functionality to the Omnia's FM tuner chip!
TMC (short for 'Traffic Message Channel') is described here in detail, but in a nutshell it allows unconnected devices to receive traffic information over-the-air via conventional FM radio signals (e.g. TMC in the UK is broadcast via Classic FM). It's implemented already in a lot of in-car navigation units, and is often implemented via additional hardware addons for PNAs such as TomTom units.
Created by user 'BeamRider', OmniaTMC is installed via a CAB file and includes a thorough PDF document detailing installation and operation, excerpts from which are below...
This is definitely one of the most exciting and accomplished community based development efforts i've seen in a long time, so hats off to BeamRider for his work!
The aim of this tool is to enable TMC navigation by using the internal FM Radio tuner chip as RDS source and then emulate a GPS/TMC with a virtual serial port.
This software is intended for the use with Samsung i900 Omnia only, the use on different devices is not supported in any way.
How to install
• this package should work with any firmware version, but Samsung FM Radio tuner compatibility is not assured outside HJ3 up to IA5 firmware version
• Microsoft WM SDK privileged developer certificates need to be installed before installing OmniaTMC. This package is distributed by Microsoft with WM SDK but it is also available on the web from various other sources.
OmniaTMC test and configuration tool
OmniaTMCsetup.exe is a test and configuration tool for AdvFMDriver and TMCSerial. It allows to test AdvFMRadio behaviour and to configure parameters for TMCSerial.
