Route info when not on an actual route?

Sorry if this has been asked, i have just purchased a ride 420 and i'm pretty pleased with it but is there any way to have the views of speed cameras/petrol stations etc when you are not on an actual planned route and just have it on showing where you are and the roads you are on? I will be a bit disappointed if it's a no because i know that the gamin's do. I have also found that if i'm on a planned route and i go another way the satnav recalculates quickly but doesn't update the speed cameras that i will now pass due to the change, anyone else notice this?

cheers!

    Hi mr average

    Welcome to the community:)

    The device will always alert for Speed cameras for a planned route and this is the default behaviour how the application works.

    Regards
    Vikram

    In the... Tap (.... Menu) -> Setting -> Sounds & Warnings...
    Have you Set.....
    Warning Type... Read Allowed (Needs a Computer Voice set in the Voices menu)
    Speed Cameras & Hazards... Set to ON
    The next 10 Setting ALL set to Always
    The next 4 Settings ALL set to ON

    See If that works for you

    Thanks very much, i will give it a try, don't know if i can hear my satnav that well while i'm riding though. I suppose i could get a bluetooth earpiece.

    I as far as I recall speed camera alerts, visual (in the sidebar) and voice are given even with no planned route loaded.

    Thanks for the reply, i have no side bar when not on a planned route, can you tell me how to get it on as the manual doesn't say how to?

    Hi
    I think the warning banners are independent and overwrite/replace the Tomtom Traffic Bar
    You can see this for yourself, even if you have a route planned and one of the warnings, say a Fixed Speed Camera Warning is displayed... If you tap on the warning, the warning clears and the Traffic Bar is displayed

    Also any 3rd Party POI you have loaded and set to display, all display on the Map without a route planned

    Hi
    Out today... Using my GO 520, I drove around without route planned
    Using the 2D, 3D and the North up Overview Maps
    In all three Modes, the device warned of.....
    Exceeding the Speed Limit
    Fixed Speed cameras
    Mobile Speed camera Hot Spots
    Average speed camera zones (Motorway)

    I can't see any reason why.....
    Approaching Stationary Queuing Traffic
    Red Light Camera... Wouldn't also Show

    Any 3rd Party POI you have loaded and set to display on the Map... All display the Tomtom generic Icon OK

    I didn't Notice if petrol stations were displayed on the map or not

    i have blueoothed mine to my phone to see if it needs a permanent net connection but has made no difference, i'm thinking it will be something simple like a view change, so just trying anything at the moment, thanks for the feedback though, i'm sure i'll get there :8

    Just to confirm guys i have a Rider 420, not sure if different models give different functionality.

    See attached pic, this is what it looks like when i'm riding with no route

    Hi
    But you're not riding.....
    I would have thought you need to be connected to Live Traffic & Speed Cams
    And in the proximity of the Hazard or Speeding

    Hi,

    I've tried it riding and get the same view, i rode past speed cameras and petrol stations that get displayed when I'm on a route in the route bar but nothing when not on a route????? I'm well confused, i have sent the question to Tom Tom support to see what they say.

    thanks again

    Guys,

    just a quick update... so after a bit of back and forth emails with tom tom support i got the advice to reset to factory defaults and give it a try, i did this and went out past a known speed camera and it popped up on the satnav with plenty of warning time, i've now reconnected my tom tom to my drive and done the required updates for my packages, not had time to test it but hopefully will work from now on. Thanks for all your replies, ride safe!!
