New update: TomTom Speed Camera service becomes Danger Zones in France
TomTom had a meeting with the Road Safety Ministry to clarify the situation regarding new and upcoming legislation. As a result, TomTom is introducing a 100% compliant Danger Zones service available in a free download for compatible products.
GO LIVE 1000/1005/1005 World, GO LIVE 820/825, Via LIVE 120/125, Via 120/125, Via LIVE 120/125, Start 20/25, GO x50 (LIVE), GO x40 LIVE, GO x30, GO x20, XL IQ Routes Edition / XL IQ Routes Edition 2 / XL (IQ Routes) Classic, XL IQ Routes LIVE, XXL / XXL Classic, Start 2 / Start Classic / Start XL but not Start 1, ONE IQ Routes Edition and Pearl
If your navigation device is in this list, you can easily download the new French Danger Zones service:
If your device is not in this list, we are sorry but your device is not compatible with the new Danger Zones service. To be compliant, disable the speed camera alerts on your device when driving in France.
For iPhone users: TomTom will soon release version 1.10 of TomTom Navigation app for iPhone/iPad. This release does not yet offer a fully-compliant solution for speed cameras in France. Version 1.10 disables the Speed Camera service for all owners of the app that have a map of France (France, W. Europe, Europe). Later this spring the app will include a fully-compliant Danger Zone service for France.
New Danger Zones service in France
What do I need to do?
If you have a device that is supported, you need to connect your navigation device to TomTom HOME or MyTomTom and do the following:
Download the new update that activates French Danger Zones on your navigation device.
Download the one-time free download of a French Danger Zones file. This is for everyone even if you donít have a subscription to the Speed Camera service.
How does it work?
In France, all types of speed camera locations and accident black spots are now reported using a new service: Danger Zones
Specific locations are not available and a Danger Zone icon is shown instead.
The length of the zone depends on the road type at the current location and can be 300m/2000m/4000m.

The location of the speed camera, if any, in that zone is randomised.
In future, Danger Zones provided by the French government (Zones de Vigilance Accrue) will be included in our database as they become available.
The only speed limit indicated is the one from your map. It can be incorrect if the map is too old and needs updating.
If several cameras are close to each other, the warning can be merged in a single longer zone.
The reporting of Danger Zones is still possible and legal but the location will be randomised for all users. TomTom appreciates the continued community-based reporting.
Danger Zones are only available when driving in France. The TomTom Speed Camera service works as normal outside of French borders. This applies if a route goes across French borders.
If you drive without a route planned, the performance of the Danger Zone alerts may decrease.
The service has been renamed to Danger Zones in the Services menu on your device. However until your device has a GPS fix and knows it is in France, the menu may still refer to Speed Camerasbiggerdave Reviewed by biggerdave on .
