Danger Zones
About Danger Zones
TomTom Danger Zones warns you about danger zones and risk zones on your route when you are in
France. Danger zones and risk zones are only shown if you have a map of France or your map
includes France and you are in France.
Since January 3, 2012 it has been illegal to receive warnings about the position of speed cameras and
speed traps when you are driving in France. For compliance with this change in French law, speed
camera locations are no longer reported but instead areas of danger are indicated as danger zones
and risk zones.
A danger zone is a zone specified by French law. A risk zone is a temporary danger zone reported by
users. TomTom Danger Zones warns you about both danger zones and risk zones in the same way.
Danger zones and risk zones may or may not contain one or more speed cameras or a range of other
driving hazards:



Specific speed camera locations are not available and a danger zone icon is shown as you
approach the zone.
The minimum length of the zone depends on the road type and is 300 m for roads in built-up
areas, 2000 m (2 km) for secondary roads and 4000 m (4 km) for highways.
If two danger zones are close to each other, the warnings can be merged into a single longer
zone.
Information about the location of zones is continually updated by TomTom and other users and
frequently sent to your TomTom App so that you always have the latest information. You can also
contribute by reporting new risk zone locations.
49
Note: You cannot remove a danger zone or a risk zone.
Regional availability
Note: You can use TomTom services when traveling abroad, but when planning a route you need
to consider that not all services are available in all countries.
Connection to Danger Zones
Your Danger Zones service is constantly being updated unless the connection to the TomTom server
is lost.
This symbol in the Driving View indicates that the service is not currently

Your Danger Zones service may not be receiving updates due to one or more of the following reasons:



Your service has expired.
Data services is switched off in TomTom services in the Settings menu.
The service is not available in your area.
Danger Zone warning
When you are approaching a zone, a zone alert symbol appears in the
Driving View, a small symbol appears on your driving route, and you hear a
warning sound. The distance to the zone is shown above the zone alert
symbol.
The warning sound you hear depends on whether you are currently exceeding the speed limit or not.
Report a risk zone
Note: All temporary zones that are reported appear as Risk Zones when you are driving.
If you enter a temporary risk zone and do not receive a warning you can
report it by tapping the Risk Zone report button in the top left corner of the
Driving View. Your report is sent to TomTom and, once validated, shared
with all TomTom Danger Zone subscribers.
A reported temporary risk zone stays in the TomTom Danger Zones app for three hours.
If a new temporary risk zone is reported directly before or after an existing risk or danger zone, the
new zone is added to the existing zone.
If enough subscribers report a new zone, that zone may become a danger zone and be available for
all subscribers.

SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING DRIVING IN CALIFORNIA AND MINNESOTA
California Vehicle Code Section 26708 "Material Obstructing or Reducing Driver's View" permits
mounting of a navigation device on the windshield as follows: "A portable Global Positioning System
(GPS), which may be mounted in a seven-inch square in the lower corner of the windshield farthest
removed from the driver or in a five-inch square in the lower corner of the windshield nearest to the
driver and outside of an airbag deployment zone, if the system is used only for door-to-door navigation
while the motor vehicle is being operated." Drivers in California should not use a suction mount on
their side or rear windows.
Note: This section of the California Vehicle Code applies to anyone driving in California, not just
California residents.

shall not drive or operate with any objects suspended between the driver and the windshield other
than sun visors and rearview mirrors and electronic toll collection devices."
Note: this Minnesota Stature applies to anyone driving in Minnesota, not just Minnesota residents.
TomTom Inc. bears no responsibility for any fines, penalties or damage that may be incurred by
disregarding this notice. While driving in any state with windshield mounting restrictions, TomTom
recommends the use of the supplied Adhesive Mounting Disk or its Alternative Mounting Kit, which
includes multiple options for mounting TomTom devices on the dashboard and the air vents. See
