TomTom rider

I have just purchased a TomTom Rider really for the express purpose of telling me when I am over the speed limit and for speed cameras the problem is it is hopelessly slow in its response it takes about 5 to 8 seconds to respond for a speed alert and will not respond at all unless 7Ks over if you are to accelerate hard you can be 30Ks over before it responds ( both visually or audible )also it will not give me verbal instructions for navigation only visual even though the voice command is switched on .
I have contacted TomTom and they have told me to do a program reboot and reload the maps all of witch I have done all to no avail
Should this device work better then this or are they that bade

I have run the Rider for years (Rider2) and it seems a lot faster than that, even bought the car kit and use it in the car. Apart from buying new maps about a year ago I have not updated the software so maybe that's why it works a bit faster if they have loaded loads of new features into the most current version.

Paul the only reason I did the reboot of software and new maps is because tomtom instructed me to, to solve the problem but to no avail
