Re: Speed limit alerts

I am trying to do this myself.  The help pages tell me to go to Warning Sounds in TomTom Home but when I do it tels me that my TomTom doesn't support that feature.  I do find that the support side for this Sat Nav is less than one would like.  I have an XL2 IQ routes edition (about 2 weeks old) which I understood was quite top of the range.

Re: Speed limit alerts

I have same model. I'm disappointed that this feature appears not to be available. Constantly looking at the device screen to check on speed limits seems to me to be a safety issue and maybe not that difficult for TomTom to correct.

Re: Speed limit alerts

Sorry, but no TomTom model with a '2' in its name is top of the range. Signifies a model with EasyMenu which means many fewer user choices/options.

Re: Speed limit alerts

this might help you as I have a xl live and if you tap the screen then go into live services in there you will see safety alerts tap that and you should have 4 icons  1 to report cameras a yellow triangle with change warning preferences which is what you need to tap and when you tap it you will get a list of all cameras all you need do then is add the sounds to which ones you want to or all the same if you wish let me know if you need more info

Re: Speed limit alerts

What TomTom 5 inch models have the speed alert  sound warning feature as well as the red flashing numbers when going over the posted limit? Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Too me, it is better and safer to hear a warning rather than constantly looking at the  GPS. I don't intentionally speed ,but living in the mountains, it's easy to drift over the limit. Thanks

I have done it through the Safety Alert location.  It will prompt you through it.

Re: Speed limit alerts

I have just purchased a XL250 and am very disappointed that the speed limit audio warnings do not appear to be available on this model.  Has anyone been able to download or activate them on this model.  My previous OneXL purchased four years ago had this feature and was one of the most valuable things about it and saved many a speeding fine.  I thought I was upgrading not going backwards.
