oops looks like you need to reset it and lose your settings etc hope they are saved somehow. see this link to find out how http://uk.support.tomtom.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1898/~/navigation-device-not-starting-or-displaying-a-cross
These units are prone to freezing on occasion. There likely isn't anything wrong with the unit, just a certain set of particular circumstances caused the software to lock up. Turn it off completely let it sit for a minute and restart it.
If you continually have this problem in the same menu, doing the same thing, I'd recommend updating or reinstalling the software onto the gps unit by following the directions that come with it.
Either the volume is low or muted. You need to scroll through the menu and check sounds. There may well be a speaker with a red cross through it in your menu which will indicate it is muted. The volume control is pound by tapping in the corner of the screen-I think its bottom right. When you switch on you tomtom it may well say the version number. Does it speak for general directions? If it does and the above does not solve anything then look for the setting which lets you choose "audible alerts" or just alerts as you should have an option of getting the spoken warning which you want.
You should first go to preferences and make sure that "speed cameras" are activated in "show points of inetrest on map" . Once they are activated , go to "Manage Points Of Interest" agian , this is found in preferences. Once in there , select "Warn When Near POI". You should now be able to "see' and "hear" the warnings. If it still doesnt work then it's possible you have some corrupted files in the camera warning data , so try a fresh download. Please be sure you have a backup of all your data before you mess about . if you don't already ahve a backup on your PC , recommend you do it now.
I had tomtom speedcameras on my map until i subscribed, then it did an update and they all dissaperd? (i cant see them on the map any more) but in the settings they are set to warn me 15 secs before and it just pops up when im near a camera! so it still works it just looks diffrent.
I am not sure, but if you look when it beeps, it also has a small icon that appears on the top left side of a stoplight with what looks like a camera on it. It might be warning you that a traffic light ticketing camera is near. At stoplights and stop signs in certain cities, they will send a ticket through the mail if you run a red light for instance and they find you because the camera takes a picture of your plates.
I have the same problem and my TomTom is "brand new". This unit is obviously dysfunctional and the company should take these back and submit a full refund. I tried notifying the TomTom Company to no avail. I will start mass emails to warn people about this company
