Warning sounds

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.
