Hi. I have a new Tom Tom go premium ( as tom tom said they would not update the maps on my older Go910) and it has been such a long time since i put the speed cameras onto my old Go 910 , that i have forgotten how to do it. Please can you point me to any info on how to install them onto my new Go Premium or to any videos that show how to put the speed cameras on there.
Many thanks
Jimmymerlin

They won't "Go". TomTom removed the facility to be able to import meaningful user POIs ages ago.
Keep your "older Go910" going, return the new one as not fit for purpose and buy a Garmin.

Just as an aside, you are concerned about road changes? But speed camera locations change far more frequently than road layouts.

When i bought the Go , I asked if it would accept 3rd part POI's nd Tom tom said it would . Are you saying that it wont accept the Pocket world speed cameras update and then work properly ????? Thanks. Jimmymerlin

It depends on what you mean exactly by "work properly".
TomTom's interpretation is that you can navigate to a POI without being warned about it.
Speed camera database: You would not normally navigate to a speed camera, but you would rather be warned about it whilst approaching.

TomToms latest 'incarnation' allows you to do the former, but prevents the latter (except, of course, for TT's own speed cam database).
So their latest incarnations are about as much use as tits on a bull for third party speed cameras.

Garmin, however still allow speed camera type warnings to be used and loaded as third party (PGPSW) databases (as well as their own Cyclops database).

So, in a nutshell, the Pocket GPS speed camera downloads , that i used to use to warn me when i was approaching a speed camera , or mobile speed camera or camera on traffic lights, will not work on my new TOM TOM go like they used to on my Go 910 ?
Im pretty sure thats what you are telling me, which is a huge pain in the backside really !!!!!
Ive had the new tom tom about 3 months now, so dont think they would refund me now ! Cheers Jimmymerlin

Correct.

Tomtom are fully aware what you mean but they deliberately pedantically quote POI as a point of interest that you enter and navigate to. They are not wrong in what they say but are playing politicians in not answering the question you asked.

Speed cameras require the advance proximity notification facility that they discontinued and must have lost sales.

Thank you for ll of the info guys. I must admit i am gutted to find out I cant use your speed camera database anymore as it was much better than the warnings i used to get on my old device. I have just sent a letter of complaint off to tom tom saying that the new device does not do what i specifically asked them to do and said it is not fit for purpose and have asked for a refund ....... but as its approx 3 months old now, although only used once due to lockdown, i doubt very much if they will give me a refund. In the highly unlikely event that they do give me a refund, what was the Garmin device you recommended and apart from thee speed cameras, would it be as good as the new tom tom go premium ..................just in case i can change my device !!!!
Cheers

If you have a smartphone and a car audio unit that allows pairing then you can still use the PGPSW database via CamerAlert or SpeedTrap Alert.
