Is there any way you can set the distance for camera warnings to warn earlier that there is a camera ahead other than the standard setting on a TT5100?
The standard warning is too short and a camera van has normally got you before the warning sound goes off

    No, it is not possible to set the camera warning distance at which you want to be warned.

    I raised this as an issue five years ago and it has never been sorted. Driving along the A14 in Suffolk yesterday where there is a flyover used by camera vans the warning was given far too late in both directions. If you can see the place, the laser gun can see you.

    Hi
    @Arnold Layne
    I realize it's not Ideal....
    But if you keep an eye on the Traffic Bar you will see a warning many miles before you see the Speed Camera....

    Note... I use the 'Wide Traffic Bar' in the settings menu...

    @YamFazMan I hadn’t used the wide traffic bar before but now I prefer it. As you say you can see the upcoming cameras better with the wide bar, but it seems only if you have a route planned. If not, earlier warning of mobile cameras would still be better.
