The C04 RDS encoder is comparable to the C02. The operation however is done via the software instead of manually. The TCP/IP-interface is optional and can be retrofitted what turns the C04 in a low-cost alternative solution. Simple configuration and operation via control software ARCOS Config.

The 2wcom RDS Encoder C04 handily fulfills the needs of a TMC service provider such as NAVTEC or any other RDS broadaster.
