Voices transfer to GO premium X

Hi I have just purchased a Premium X and would like if possible to have my voices from my previous device to be made available for download. They are Brian Blessed, Homer Simpson, John Cleese and Darth Vader, thanks in advance.

    I have the same problem: missing Belgian (Vlaams) or Dutch(Nederlands) computer voices. With the standard voices I only get simple directions.
    @VikramK : can you add for my profile?

    Welcome to the community!

    Adding Ellen(Dutch computer voice)

    It should be offered for download when connected to a WiFi internet connection.

    Hi Vikram, i wait for the beginning of the owning of my GO6200 ( three years ago) for Virginie ( french female computer voice) and Julie ( french canadian computer voice).

    Something new?

    :) I know Mike...

    'Julie' is there but not compatible with the WiFi models.

    Regards

    I had Maragall catalan voice in my old TomTom XXL.
    Is it possible to install it in my new Go Premium X?

    Hi
    @eipeus

    If the Maragall catalan voice is available for the Go Premium
    Only @VikramK or @lampard (The Forum Moderators) and Tomtom Support can allocate Computer Voices to your Account for downloading... You will have to wait until Monday when they return....

    Hi @eipeus

    Welcome to the community!

    Sorry, but we don't have a Catalan voice available.

    I have the .chk file used in my old TomTom XXL with the voice.
    Isn't there any way to convert it in order to be loaded in Go Premium X???

    I will not download POI on my tomtom premium x recently purchased. How it is done because the instructions are not well explained.

    Another question. As my tom is downloaded via wifi, the tomtom drive does not open and I cannot connect to the community to download POIs. How should I do it?

    See Tomtom Video....
    Installing 3rd party POI Categories... You use the MyDrive Web Route planner
    Here... https://mydrive.tomtom.com

    See Tomtom Video... How to import POIs, GPX files and Favourites in MyDrive


    Displaying Personal POIs on the Driving View/Map
    Be aware... You can't install the POI associated .BMP files
    You can only use the 5 Tomtom supplied generic Icons....

    13s1zlb8gssy.jpg
    But you can use one icon for for more than one POI category i.e... place all your fuel categories under one Icon, then if you tap on a nearby 'say' Fuel Icon a Quick menu opens --> Tap the 3Dot Icon for more options & more Information

    Setup... After installing your Personal or 3rd party POIs....Tap 4Dot (....Menu) --> Settings --> Appearance --> Show POI lists on the Map
    It says a restart is required, but I've never found it to be necessary
    After choosing the Generic Icon.. Tap the coloured (^) Icon screen top right... Pinch zoom the Map, the Generic POI Icons all appear live and working
    Note... The Generic POI Icons disappear when the Map is highly zoomed out (I guess so you can scroll around a clear Map to find your location)
    The Icon reappear as you zoom back in again

    Here the Yellow Pentagon Icons --> National Trust
    fwsmyemsot57.jpg
    Searching an installed 3rd party POI Category....
    The search engine is excellent you usually only need to type around three characters of the POI name for a hit...
    For example... I have loaded the 3rd party POI's for the National Trust... To show the POI's for "National Trust" on the map, work your way down to option (2)

    From the main screen
    Tap (....)4Dot Icon (Screen Bottom left)
    Swipe left or Tap the mid/right edge of the screen to go to and tap the MyPlaces Icon
    Scroll down and select the required POI Category For example "National Trust"
    You now have three options
    The Main search area turns blue and "National Trust" is offered with a flashing cursor
    Continue typing the name of the required "National Trust" site, Type Dud (Or as much of the word that's required for Dudmaston Hall appear at the top of the National trust list)
    Tap on the offered Dudmaston Hall and select the Drive Icon

    fvvl1hj389eu.jpg
    You also have two further options.....
    After the initial "National Trust" POI selection
    There's a dual Icon (screen bottom right) with Three Lines and Two circles

    o7rx4qycdyey.jpg
    (1)..... Tap the three Lines Icon (bottom right screen) and a list will appear of the "National Trust" sites in distance order
    (2)...... Tap the Two circle Icon for the "National Trust" sites POI's to appear on the screen (Pinch zoom for detail) (Note..... On the Start range its easier to tap the plus and minus buttons to zoom the map screen)
    as far as I'm aware it will show the nearest 60ish POI's around your location
    There is also a Keyboard Icon (screen bottom right) to return to the search window from the options (1) and (2)

    An example of the generic Icons on the search screen, the Icons are dynamic so the closer you zoom more icons appear
