I drove along a local dual-carriageway this morning and noticed that the little ladder symbol did not show up IIRC i did read somewhere that the system was due to be turned off so is it now the case?

On the weekend 29th June I was in the area of Heathrow & M4 and it was working then. But this weekend I went up the M6 to Wigan and nothing seemed tocome up. My satnav did warn about a delay at Junctions 26 to 27 but TMC was quiet.

I'm pretty certain it's being switched off a bit at a time. A few weeks ago the M6 J1 to about J4 seemed dead, but then up to J10 was OK. Now the bit I use from J16 to J15 seems dead though the A500 that is in the same area is still working. So I reckon by Christmas it will be all but gone.

Yes the free service is now being swithched off unfortunately.
The paid for version with the Sat Nav directions is still going strong.

Daft question, as I'm no electronics expert, but if it is being turned off, has anyone ever tried to convert one of these so it works with TMC instead?
