Missing Speed and Red Light Cameras on my GO 520

DucDuc Posts: 35 [Master Explorer]
Speed and Redlight cameras missing on my 520. Furthermore, have not seen any updates lately.
Funnily, some speed cameras do show up sometimes. Also, pretty cheesed off since there is no Australian phone support available any more. You need to be a Mensa member to get issues reloved.

    Noticed lately that previous highlighted speed and red light cameras are missing. Also, I have not seen a speed camera update for a while. Any ideas?

    Have you tried a Soft/Drum roll restart on the device ??? This restarts the devices Operating System afresh

    Charge the device for at least 2Hrs….
    (Preferably using something like a Smartphone Charger using the Tomtom USB lead)
    OR have the device plugged into a power supply while the device is restarting
    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....

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

    Always use a Computer voice...
    Serena or Malcolm for me 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
    Now as well as the normal triple 'bong bong bong' warning sound....
    The device will say....
    'Fixed Camera'
    'Mobile Hot Spot'
    'Red-light Camera'
    'Accident Black-spots
    ‘Spoken Traffic delays’

    Hi YamFazMan, done the abve bar a complete factory reset, which I will only do as a last resort. Still baffled why I am not getting any updates. Device was working fine before. Still stuffed.
    Google maps and Waze are looking better by the day.
    Furthermore, this happened a while back and Australian Phone Support fixed it with sending me an update. Alas, no more Australian Phone Support.
