I have a Renault Megane 2011 model built in Tom Tom. I have set up the speed warning sound but it never gives a warning when exceeding the speed limit. Is there any setting that must be changed or added.

I set mine yesterday to see if it works. I have a Megane Coupe 3 months old with the Carminat TomTom Live, I suspect the same as yours. I ticked the box in Safety Preferences to warn me when exceeding the speed limit and chose the warning sound.
It worked for me and the alert went off, first time 6 MPH above the speed limit and then about every 20 seconds after.
To be honest this would be such a pain that I would never have this option switched on. You already get a visual display of exceeding the speed limit as the icon flashes on the TomTom display. Having the audio warning would be very annoying every 15-20 seconds if driving just a few MPH above the speed limit. - Are you really sure you want it?
My megane has a speed limiter switch in the car, separate from TomTom. I hardly ever use that either, but you could always set that to a certain speed if you're worried about driving too fast. Of course you can only set 1 speed.
