How to change the sound for speed camera alerts?

Does anybody know if and how to change the sound for speed camera alert on Go Essential with TMC? I would like to change the sound from a simple ding to something more alert grabbing. Thanks for the assist.

    Hi
    @Mustang_1970

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

    Always use a Computer voice...
    Serena or Malcolm in the UK
    Also....
    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 now say....
    'Fixed Camera'
    'Mobile Hot Spot'
    '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 setup a Wide Traffic/Route Bar

    YamFazMan,
    Thanks for the info. I have already did that but I am not happy with the "ding sound" when you do not select a computer voice. Therefore, I was wondering if there was a way to use another sound for the alert (i.e. install a MP4 sound) which could be used instead.

    Hi

    Sorry you can't change the standard Warning sounds

    Always use a TTS Computer voice... The spoken instructions and Text to speech is far superior to ANY Recorded voice
