The safety features on your TomTom navigation device include several warning options to help make your journey even safer. There are a number of warning sounds preinstalled on your device, but you can also create your own.
Warning sounds can be used for:
|•||Warnings for driving over the speed limit.|
|•||Warnings for driving over a set speed.|
|•||Warnings for driving near schools and places of worship.|
|•||Warnings for when you are near to a POI.|

You can create a custom warning sound on your computer.
