    I've been using a Garmin Nuvo for a number of years in the car and motorcycle and periodically the screen come up
    stating that my cable is not compatible for traffice reporting, ort something like that.
    I tap OK and all is back to normal and them amay an hour later it re-occurs. I've switch to another cable that is slightly thicker with a samll cyllinder on it and the same message keep re-surfacing.

    Any suggestions?

    I'm guessing you have a Garmin Nuvi, however Garmin have many different Nuvi models, usually Nuvi is followed by a model number and it would help if you tell us the number

    Traffic reporting uses a power cable that has a built-in radio receiver, it is a special USB cable made just for Garmins, a normal USB cable will not have the radio receiver built into it
