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.

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,
