Discussion in 'UK GPS' started by Thomas Glanzmann, Jan 2, 2007.

  1. Hello,
    is it possible to enable a audible alarm when driving to fast with
    TomTom Navigator 6 running on WIndows Mobile 5.

    It's somewhere between Effigy and Intercourse. Effigy is where they burn
    people at regular intervals, and the road to Paradise is through
    Intercourse.

  4. Hello Nick,

    > Where is fast?


    the maps that come with TomTom Navigator 6 have speed limit data for
    most of the roads I am driving built in defaultwise. If this is the case
    the speed is shown as 'current speed/allowed speed' (example: '60/60')
    otherwise it is shown as 60 km/h for example. If you're driving 10 km/h
    faster than allowed the two numbers become red and start to blink. But
    there is no audible indication that I am speeding. However that isn't
    my question. My question is: "How can I indicate the speeding using a
    audible alarm?" And the question still stands. However it would also be
    interesting to adapt the 'current speed' + 10 km/h speeding barrier. I
    waited for this feature over a year and finally it is there.

    Honestly,
    Thomas

    In the UK, the speed data is so bad that you are better turning it off.

    in Germany it isn't. However I would be interested how to turn it of
    anyway. Is there a page with tweaks for TomTom Navigator 6?

    Hmm in that case I'll stick with PrymeNav. It has its faults but the speed
    database is very accurate. It usually warns me of changes in the limit
    about 100-300 metres before the sign.

    Unless they have recently changed the speed limits, as they have on a main
    road near us. :-(

    I prefer to keep a eye open for the signs,

    This may come a suprise to you, but the maps get updated at regular
    intervals.

    > I prefer to keep a eye open for the signs,


    What makes you think that having an audible warning prevents one from
    looking out of the window? It also helps when you are in one of those
    regions where the LA thinks it's amusing to have a 40 limit and yet the
    repeaters seem to be miles apart.
