    Default Another Tom Tom Question ...

    Following on from another Tom Tom thread which I don`t want to hijack ...

    If you put the POI for spped cameras in does the Tom Tom warn you verbally of them before you see them ? If so is it just if you are speeding or does it warn you of every camera ? The VXR is toooo fast and tho I don`t condone speeding a little heads up would be good if you were to drift over the limit before a camera, and I need sat nav (in the same way the wife needs shoes !) so two birds with one stone.

    Also is the 500 a lot better than the 300 or is the 300 more than capable ?

    Cheers for any info .....

    Default tom tom

    I would go for tom tom one actually as it's easier to get a brodit mount for- (dont like the sucker windscreen mount as if you leave it on it just advertises the fact you have a satnav)

    I've hardwired the brodit mount as it saves having a fiddly cig lighter wire

    If you go to pocketgpsworld.com you find the links for speed camera warnings there- you can input the spoken alerts so it warns you when you get to a specified distance before the POI- 275 yards or whatever

    any probs PM me mikehouston82@hotmail.com

    All the speed cameras are POI's, so you can set a warning a fixed distance before them. The website also has some custom voice warnings, so you get a descriptive message ("Gatso!" or "Specs" or "Mobile").

    I recently brought the 510, on a good deal at Dixons tax free (£297) and the screen is much better than the early ones.

    I dunno about on Tom Toms but my Garmin sends out an 'alert tone' then parts of the display change to a red warning colour.
