Is it possible to have a different sound for speed cameras, speed limits and over the set speed limit, all I get is dong dong dong for everything. Could change the sounds on the old tom tom

    Welcome to the site....
    You haven't stated your Tomtom Model Name/Number in your Profile ??? For the later NAV4 & latest NAV5 (Wi-Fi) devices try....

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

    Always use a TTS (Text to Speech) Computer voice...
    Serena or Malcolm... Here 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 give the normal Dong/Dong Warning
    Followed by....
    'Fixed Camera'
    'Mobile Hot Spot'
    'Average Speed Camera Zone'
    '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 set up a Wide Traffic/Route Bar
    Stay Safe... ATB YFM
