On my TomTom Go 620 I get a warning when I drive faster than the speed limit. I am wondering if I change the settings on my device so I get a warning when I drive faster than the speed limit plus 5 km/h. So when the speed limit is 50, I will get a warning when I drive faaster than 55.

    Are you using the Car Speedometer as a comparator against the warning sound from your GO 620 ??? The Car Speedometer will most likely be reading fast

    The reading on the GO 620 is much more accurate, I think the trigger for the speeding warning is displayed speed + 10%

    See Wikipedia... Speedometer

    For general improvement using the Tomtom Speed Cam Database over the default settings

    Always use a Computer voice...
    Serena or Malcolm in the UK
    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'
    'Accident Black-spots
    ‘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
