A comprehensive and precise database
Based on the expertise of the TomTom users network with 5 million members spread over 30 countries, you can be sure that the warnings will be comprehensive, even on less busy stretches. Depending on the country, the service informs you about the type of radar and when you are approaching an accident hot spot.
Depending on the country and the rules and regulations in force, the DS Speedcam service will adapt to ensure it's appropriate for the country of use. For example, in the UK it notifies you of the exact position of fixed and mobile radars, but in France you are warned solely that you are entering a danger zone - as laws do not allow for exact camera locations to be identified.
