    Hi @rockypaul

    Do you mean add voices to your Premium that you have used previously on other devices.

    Or do you mean create your own voice version as you could on the very old units. If this then the answer is no.

    I would like to use a voice I had on my previous TomTom plus startup & shutdown images, also would like to use different sounds for speed cameras etc as I did on my old Device, but at present none of this seems possible on premium X ?

    Hi @rockypaul

    If you advise here what previous voices you have then the Mods can advise if they are useable on the Premium versions and when you get it add them to your account so you can download them to the unit.

    You cannot change the Startup and Shut down images and you cannot change the sounds applicable to Speed cameras although you can have the unit announce verbally the speed cameras and what type of camera they are, ie Fixed, Mobile, Average, Red Light, etc

    Sorry... Startup & shutdown images... NO

    For general improvement using the Tomtom Speed Cam Database over the default settings

    Always use a Computer voice...
    Serena or Malcolm in the UK
    Also....
    From the main screen... Tap (.... Menu) -> Setting -> Sounds & Warnings...
    Set... 'Warning Type' to... Read Allowed... (Important... Needs a Computer Voice set in the Voices menu)
    Speed Cameras & Hazards... Set to ON
    The next 10 Setting ALL set to Always
    The next 4 Settings ALL set to ON
    The device will now say....
    'Fixed Camera'
    'Mobile Hot Spot'
    'Red-light Camera'
    'Accident Black-spots
    ‘Spoken Traffic delays’


    Speed Cams
    If you keep a check on the Traffic-bar... The device gives you a visual Warning of the next Fixed or Mobile Speed Camera many miles before you reach the camera
    Even more info if in the 'Setting menus' you setup a Wide Traffic/Route Bar

    HI @rockypaul

    Those answering your questions here are customers like you.

    You will need @VikramK to add the voice "Sally traffic from BBC radio 2 in UK" to your account. I have feeling that may not be available.

    Seems a backward step not being allowed to have the ability to add the voice you want or the sounds out want.....

    VikramK likely will see your post here and let you know if it is possible to add the voice.

    Hi @rockypaul

    We don't have the voice you are looking for.(Sally)

    As YamFazMan advised, adding customized voices and alert sounds is not supported on the new range of devices.

    If you wish you use a computer voice then I can get it added for you.

    Regards
    Vikram
