I recieved your camera downloads, its great but i have 1 small question , with all the POI in it do I have to use each speed limit or can I just use each different type of camera brand. eg I have a tom tom when I go to warn when near POI , it gives me pocketgps aus gatso then it gives me 8 different speeds do I neeed to load all speeds or can I just use the first main heading type..... Why I cannot change the sound of a POI , i change it by the screen but when I next use it on the road , it goes back to the old sound.

For your first question, you might want to go back to the camera database download page and read the differences between the two downloads available for the TomTom.
You can either download and install the "Full speed-zoned" set, in which case you get alerted to all the different camera types AND their speed limit...
or you can download the "Consolidated by type" set which only tells you the camera type, NOT the speed limit.

If that's all you want, then delete all the PocketGPS files on the TomTom and start again with a new download of the consolidated set.

But if you DO want to know the speed limit when you approach a camera, you need to install the full speed-zoned set and set them ALL up in the "Warn when near POI" menus, there's no "short-cut"!

This depends on what you have installed...
If you also downloaded the "real voice" warnings from this site, then (by default) they will have the same names as the camera POI files. If they are then placed in the map folder with the camera files the TomTom will automatically use that sound file, over-riding any setting you make in the menu.
If you don't want that, you'll need to delete any sound files in the map folder with the .ogg extension.

If you are unsure of how to view and copy/paste/delete files on your TomTom using Windows Explorer, ask again.
