My eyesight is not what it used to be and I was wondering if there is any way I could increase the size of the flashing speed camera icon on my tomtom one xl, so that I could read the speed more clearly.

The size is set by the TomTom Software and cannot be altered. Which database are you using? The Speed Zoned one coupled with our voice warnings gives an audible ' GATSO FIFTY' type warning which may help?

Hi Blankfire.

Try using the "switch off" map function. (in the safety preferences menu). It'll give you slightly bigger MPH text, Larger turn instructions and also a slightly bigger POI warning.

HTH.

Regards,

Trevor

You CAN now increase the size very slightly (24x24 pixels instead of the standard 22x22)
Member Gerry_C has made some very readable alternative icons for the cameras ( see HERE for details)

Combine those with the verbal warnings that Darren mentioned (but he forgot the link to them, it's HERE!) and you should be real happy. Smile

It wouldn't, I assumed wrongly that you were using ours. If you are using TomTom's then the size of the icon's is but one of your problems! Their database has more holes than a collander Confused
