Hi all,

As of yesterday, I'm a proud owner of a brand new TT520. Took it for a test run, and was pleased to see sfaety camera warnings flashing up.

I exercised the latest map guarantee and all the latest software updates last evening, and since then I don't get the safety camera warnings anymore. Safety camera updates were downloaded as part of the update, and I do see the files on the device. The warnings are also enabled in the TomTom Plus menu.

Any ideas on what else I could check for?

Thanks!

Did you have a route planned on both times you have tried this out? - Mike

Yes, I did. Following the upgrade I tried it initally without a route, but thinking that might be the issue, also tried it with a route set. I did not get the alerts both ways.

With my intial setup, I tried it only with a route planned.

Thanks,

With your device not connected you can try.

1. Navigate with windows explorer to My Documents (Or Documents under Vista).
2. Doubleclick on TomTom Home and then Downloads folder
3. Rename or delete safteycamera folder

Dock your tomtom device and update.

It should then re download the cameras and sync them to your device.

Thanks for the advice. I will try that procedure and variations over the next couple of days and see what happens!

Well - it's working again!

It didn't actually allow me to redownload the safety cameras, presumably because I don't have a subscription, I think this was just the "one-off" free initial download that TT allows. But removing the safety cameras from the device and reloading them from the previously downloaded set seems to have done the trick.

thanks!
