I have been trying for several months now. With the purchase of my TomTom, I no longer can use TomTom Home, I can only use MyDrive. I am trying to set several alerts, however, I am not able to. I have tried everything in the many the threads that many of you have posted, and I am still not seeing the ADD COMMUNITY CONTENT. Maybe I need to downgrade to my previous GPS. Thanks for all your help

    Thanks for the information, however, it doesn't mention how to get back the ALERTS

    I ended up figuring it out, it was a little tedious but i managed. Guess I was looking for the TomTom icon on the MyDrive page. DUH, It's pinned on the TASK BAR, on the lower right hand of the monitor, and click on the ^ symbol, then a RIGHT click on the TomTom symbol.
    Here is how I did it.
    1. Download the Audacity, once done, click on file and IMPORT the file you want to load.
    2. Once done, click on file and EXPORT as an OGG file. (WAV will only allow you up to 250KB)
    3. Give the file a name and save it to any location
    4. Make sure that your TomTom is connected to your PC
    5. Go to MANAGE COMMUNITY CONTENT, then scroll down to ADD ALERTS, browse the files then click INSTALL.
    6. On your TomTom Home Page, go to SETTINGS, then look for the SAFETY SETTINGS, and now you can add your own personal alerts to advise you of schools nearby, red light cameras, speeding etc
