Does anyone know how to add an external microphone to the tomtom bandit because on the app it asks you if you want to use the internal or external microphone and tbh the audio isn't great from the bandit itself.

    You have to get the very special Tomtom adapter/contact. There used to be two versions, one for external power and the other for external mic. But both of them can be combined into one (power and mic) if you can solder and combine them to one.

    The Bandit was discontinued years ago and there are no accessories available. You can try finding them used on eBay, Craigslist, etc.
