I also bought a 520 wifi and i am very disappointed by the lack of capabilities against my old XL...

I did all updates availables.

Then i have configured my TomTom to show custom POI's on the map but doing that i lost the speed camera support... (map, right panel and alerts)...
What a pity !!! :/

Is there a way to have both (custom POI and Speed Camera) on the map ? (and keep alert too).

    Firstly... Have you tried a Drum roll restart on the device ????

    Charge the device for at least 2Hrs "OR" have the device plugged into a power supply
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound then release the on/off button.
    You won’t lose anything; it’s just like rebooting your PC
    I use a Soft/drum-roll start after any upgrade large or small.
    It’s also useful to keep in mind for sorting out most minor niggles......

    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...
    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 warn you when speeding

    The device will now say....
    'Fixed Camera'
    'Mobile Hot Spot'
    'Red Light Camera'
    'Average Speed camera Zone'
    '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
