    For speed camera updates you must connect your Go 510 to your Mydrive connect account then select the update.

    Did you select
    Read aloud
    Hear spoken warnings and warnings sounds.

    Hi
    @Specmaster
    No need to go out for a test... Plan a route that includes Speed Cams....
    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Current Route or Current Track --> Scroll screen left to, and Tap 'Play Route Preview' or 'Play Track Preview'....

    Yes, and it set to always, but it only plays the bongs, no longer tells it is a fixed camera, or a red light camera etc.

    I do have Serena selected as the text speak computer voice and it works fine for everything else just fine, but does not work with camera warnings.

    I have also noticed that when I plug the Go510 into the computer, I have been getting a message displayed telling me that camera announcements are not working and that I need to subscribe @99p for 3 months trail period?? I have ignored this as I am supposed to have lifetime updates.

    Thank you so much for this, it used to work perfectly until the last major update and it took me a while to realise that I was no longer getting the verbal warning as to what type of camera / threat I was facing.

    Will I need to get my sat nav in from the car to do this or not?

    I don't recall seeing an option since the last major update for Hear spoken warnings and warning sounds. I have Serena set for reading aloud road names etc but for the camera warning s there is not if I recall any option there now for spoken only warning sounds. I can go and get the unit from the car and double check.

    I have now got the unit and double-checked, there is indeed a setting for reading aloud the camera warnings and I have now selected this option and I shall be going out later and will test it out then and let you know by way of another posting in this thread, thank you for your assistance.

    Thank you everyone, I never knew that half of these features you told me to use existed, they are not mentioned in the manual that came with the device when I purchased it from Halfords. Well done everybody.
