Do I have to disable the tomtom speed camera alerts seeing that im using the PGPSW alerts? I'm guessing ill get alerted twice for the same camera otherwise?

There is no need to disable the TT alerts but it makes sense to because, as you quite rightly say, you'll be alerted twice in some locations.

Welcome to PGPSW forums. Everybody was at church, being Easter Sunday and all that. Whilst you were impatiently waiting for a reply, you could possible have searched it for something like 'disable tom tom cameras'. You would have found loads of posts answering your question.

Wow, a Christian forum where everybody attends the same church in the same time zone Shocked

The response above has nothing to do with my impatience, rather a response to your most hilarious comment Rolling Eyes I'll put it down to your chocolate binge.

Anyway, I wasn't asking 'how' to disable the tomtom alerts, rather I was asking if I should disable it or not, I 'think 'AliOnHols' understood what I was asking.

Thanks for the laugh though

Hi Carl.
Glad you took my post in the way that I meant it Very Happy
However, if you do leave the TT offering enabled and put up with the double alert (where TT have the camera in their database) , you might, after a while, find that the PGPSW database is both more complete, more up to date and well worth the money. Spot and report a new cam, you might even get a year free subscription. Conditions apply

I'll keep an eye out for cameras, I've got it on my phone too for the occasions where I know how to get to where I'm going but I'm not sure of the camera locations. I'm not even a fast driver, but I do creep over 30 accidentally at times.

Thanks for the help.

No you don't. To get over 30, your (inaccurate, over-reading) speedo has to be showing about 35. To be over the generally accepted tolerance of 35, your (inaccurate, over-reading) speedo has to be showing about 40. So in BOTH cases, you're not creeping, you're deliberately pushing the limit and should be well aware that you are doing so. The answer is to deliberately stay under the speed limit, not drive up to it.

If you check around, you'll find that this is my normal response to this comment, it's not just you. Twisted Evil Do a Search on Accidentally, author DennisN and you'll find that I'm a bit of a geek about it!

fair point, i do try to stick to the limit but because I have a P plate on (took it off, too embarrassing and gives more hassle), everyone's up my rear end making me feel like i'm slow even though I'm sticking to the limit.

When I go over 30mph im not even talking about 35, more like 33mph but im very conscious of the cameras and dont want to risk it.

It's true though, 30mph (on a 30mph road) is a limit not a target.
