Accident Black Spots

I have a TT GO 5100 which for some unknown reason reports Accident Black Spots as "Accident Black START!

This used to work OK until several months ago (probably after an update?)

I use the "Serena" voice which reads out street names. The announcement is the same for all Accident Black Spots so it cannot be location dependant, but more like the recording for the Black Spots.

I have previously seen comments on this forum about the same issue going back to last year but cannot see if this problem has ever been solved by TomTom. Can you please advise? Thanks.

    Please specify the exact versions, as there have been problems with certain combinations, to find out see and report back.
    Also when was the last time you did a speed camera update

    Hi there. I have Application version 18.200.0018.311 (0)(02/08/2018) TT GO 5100. Last camera update would have been possibly last week as I have not had any this week.

    Think you will have to contact Customers Services to clear the old camera database so you can get a clean fresh one as the one from a last week was corrupted

    See this thread for a similar experience

    So I still have this problem from a year ago when I reported it. The final word on my issue was that it was reported to the technicians. However 1 year on I still have this issue and it seems so do others. Does anyone have an idea how to solve this?

    Hello everyone reporting the pronunciation bug with the computer voice...

    We are planning to create a ticket of this, we have received some similar reports through the customer service as well.

    What information is needed:
    1. Selected computer voice-
    2. Selected country on the device when you first get started-
    3. Language choosen in the device menu-
    Thank you
