    Hi John,

    I am sorry your device is defective. Unfortunately all electronics will fail eventually...

    While repairing your device may not be possible or too expensive, you may consider buying a newer model TomTom.

    I cannot find a model 'GO 50' you refer to in your original post, but newer GO (and higher tier VIA) models all have a 'lifetime' subscription to Traffic services, Safety Camera's and Maps.

    I am not sure, but I don't think it is possible to transfer the Homer Simpson voice to a new GO device.

    Maybe you can try to contact TomTom Customer Support for a subscription refund or a discount on a new unit.

    Hope this helps. Good luck!
