Mobile traffic cameras

Today while out on a ride, I came across two speed check vans, but these did not show up on my Rider 400. I have a lifetime subscription to traffic cameras. Any idea why this would happen? I can see the fixed cameras and I receive a "speed enforcement zone" warning message.

    For general improvement using the Tomtom Speed Cam Database 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 say....
    'Fixed Camera'
    'Mobile Hot Spot'
    'Red light Camera'
    Spoken Traffic delays

    Speed Cams
    If you keep a 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
    Even more info if in the 'Setting menus' you setup a Wide Traffic/Route Bar

    Mobile Cameras only appear if they are reported by (several?) users who have actually passed them. It's a Live service.

    Thanks for the reply, but if what you say is correct, mobile cameras maybe never appear on you screen, unless they have been reported, which would go along with a message, I sometimes receive when passing a mobile camera spot "Is the camera still there? and you hit Yes or No on the screen. I had not been reporting mobile cameras before, as I assumed everyone could see them in advance, but I will do from now on.
