Hi all - Ok since a recent update (couple of months I think) my 5000 reports the words 'Accident Black Start' instead of the usual for the past 3 years 'Accident Black Spot'. Has anybody encountered this issue and found a way to fix it please?

    What is the software and map version on the device?

    All up to date as of the last versions. I think the issue started after the software update before the most recent one.

    Hi Lee,

    Thanks for reporting this!

    Could you also state the voice you're using, please? Is this reproducible on every black spot location or just a particular one? Could you give us a location for a place where you've observed this, please?

    Thanks, Mikko

    Hi Mikko - Its the Serena UK one I think its the one that reads out the street names. The one that it happens everytime on is at Clackett Lane services on the M25 in both directions in Surrey UK. In terms of another black spot for comparison I dont think I have driven through another black spot recently to check.
