having just installed TT Navigator 5 onto my phone and subsequently the speedcam poi's, I now have the task of trawling through them all to set the sounds and distances for the warnings !

I seem to remember there was a chart somewhere that gave warning distances to set into the device for the different speed cameras. Anyone know where I might find something like this ?

And is there anywhere where I can get different warning sounds or even spoken voice files to have for the different cameras ?

The TT5 bells and boings leave a lot to be desired !

Many thanks

Gerry

The chart is within the setup guide for the TomTom 910/ x20 units, you can find it Here the table is near the end of the guide.

Alternatively just use the times 10 rule and you won't go far wrong.
i.e. for 30MPH cameras set 300 YDS
for 50MPH use 500 YDS
and 70 MPH = 700 YDS
For mobiles add a further 50% to be on the safe side.

The OGG downloads page is located Here just make sure the voice pack you select matches the camera download type you have installed, Liz Whittaker is a good bet then you can have the same voice for warnings and Navigation Wink - Mike

However, even a 30 MPH mobile site could get you at 1Km, if the line of sight allowed.
