Choice of warning sounds for different situations

I have found that almost all warnings on my Go520 are only one tone, with one other tone that only sometimes sounds for major fixed cameras.
It would be much more helpful if TomTom could introduce a number of tone options for the different warnings so that drivers don't have to check their screen each time to see what the warning is for.
It would also be better if we are able to customize which tone to use for which warning, as some tones may not be preferred by some individuals.
Tomtom, are you please able to introduce this into your next system software update?

    Hi
    @Porus

    The later/Latest devices have less customizing features than the previous ranges....

    But for general improvement for a NAV4/5(Wi-fi) device over the default settings

    Use a Computer voice...
    Also....
    From the main screen....
    Tap (.... Menu) -> Setting -> Sounds & Warnings...
    Set... 'Warning Type' to... Read Allowed...
    (Important... 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
    The device will now say....
    'Fixed Camera'
    'Mobile Hot Spot'
    'Average Speed camera Zone'
    'Red Light Camera'
    'Spoken Traffic delays'

    Also... If you check on the Traffic-bar... The device gives you a visual Warning of the next Fixed or Mobile Speed Camera many miles before you reach the camera
    If you have the Traffic-bar set to the wide option, the info is even more detailed

    Some people find a spoken voice annoying, but a different tone for each warning would be great. I'm sure this would not be a big software upgrade???
