    In the menu screen where the volume bar is, does the mouth icon to the right of the volume bar have a line through it (in other words, muted)? If so, tap it to unmute it. Same with the icon to the left of the volume bar. If there is a line through it, tap to unmute.

    I have a GO 620, so I am not sure that my unit works exactly like yours, and my comments should accordingly be considered tentative.
    On my unit, the warnings have a separate menu from all of the other audible settings. The default setting was the "Bing, Bing" that you describe. I had to go to the warnings menu and select "Spoken" to change it. I do not have my 620 here at the moment to be certain of my instructions, but I believe that you go to the "Settings" menu, choose "Sounds and Warnings", and then choose "Warning Type". One of the options there should include spoken warnings.

    And my 620 is in the middle of a massive update, or I'd check it, too. Should be the same menu.
    I fired up my 600 since I think it's the same menu structure for this, and Settings / Sounds and Warnings / Warning Type / Read Out Loud seems the correct approach here.

    The 600 and 5100 should have the same menu for sounds.

    On the 620, as -et- said,

    Thankyou for reply. Yes my 5100 have the same menu for sounds as yours, i have set for "Read allowed" in warnings
    This is the setup on my TOMTOM:

    Use a Computer voice...
    Also....
    From the main screen....
    Tap (.... Menu) -> Setting -> Sounds & Warnings...
    Set... 'Warning Type' to... Read Allowed...
    (Important... Needs a Computer Voice set in the Voices menu)
    Speed Cameras & Hazards... Set to ON
    The next 10 Setting ALL set to Always
    The next 4 Settings ALL set to ON
    The device will now say....
    'Fixed Camera'
    'Mobile Hot Spot'
    'Average Speed camera Zone'
    'Red Light Camera'
    'Spoken Traffic delays'

    but i only hear a Bing Bing !!

    I notice that it is warning you that "(Important... Needs a Computer Voice set in the Voices menu)"
    Have you in fact selected a computer voice (one that pronounces all street names, etc.)???

    Yes! its pronounces all street names, etc. What does your TOMTOM say if you drive too fast in a speed zone?

    My alerts are set to 'Sound'.
    I disabled to warn when exceeding the speed limit.
    We do not have speeding cameras in Ontario.

    No idea since I don't have speed zones here, but it does say "Red Light Camera" when I approach those.

    I have the same situation here.

    Of no real consequence - before I switched to the spoken alert I would have described the alert as "Bong, Bong" rather than "Bing, Bing".

    Does anyone have a GO5100 that gives a spoken message at too high speed in a zone with speed limit ?
