    Hi @DougLap,
    Thank You for a Quick Reply to My Question.
    I was just looking for something Fun to add to My device as the in built voices are
    a little bland.
    The ones I had for My Old TomTom Go where Fun and had a bit of Character.
    Thanks once again for the Info.

    Hello there, sorry to bump an old post but I was searching for the same thing as Bigal was. I have an old GlaDos voice pack a user on reddit made some time ago and I had used it flawlessly on my old GO before it nuked itself (battery blew up, bad) I just got a Start 52. @DougLap , do you think @VikramK would be able to convert it? I'd love you all to death if you could make this a reality for me again.

    Hi @leach53

    If the voices are compatible with your Start 52 then @VikramK or @lampard should pick this up and add the voices to your account so you can load them on the unit. Look back here here tomorrow to see what they say.

    Hi @leach53
    Welcome to the community! Darth Vader voices has been activated or your TomTom. Please check for updates now.

    Unfortunately, we don't have 'Marylin Monroe' voice.

    Regards, Vikram

    Is there a list of celebrity voices that are available, or is it possible to convert old tom tom voices in any way? I really loved the way you could add them by just drag and drop.

    Hi @leach53
    START 52 does not support adding customized voices.
    Supported voices can be added using MyDrive Connect after they are active on the account.

    You will find the list of available voices here- https://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/sat-nav/maps-services/shop/navigation-voices/

    Hi,

    Apologies for commenting on a slightly older post. I would like to add some fun voices to my TomTom Start 50, but I'm starting to get the sense that it's not as easy as it used to be with newer devices. From this post, it seems @VikramK can add voices to an account. I'm not sure which voices are available but I would love to get Yoda or Darth Vader on my TomTom. Could I maybe get those activated on my account? That would be amazing.

    Kind Regards,
    Daan

    Hi @dd36

    The "Celebrity" voices such as the 2 you mention are no longer supported by TT so cannot be added to your account.

    Hi @DougLap,

    Thanks for your reply. It's a shame that it's not supported anymore, it seemed really fun.
