    Thanks for your reply Doug, How and where from do I download Serena or Malcolm, to enable Voice Control? Does buying the Tomtom Go 6200 in Switz mean that the language is set for German?

    Hi @Aks1991_Tom

    Tap Menu
    Tap Settings
    Tap Language and Units
    Tap language and it will show what the unit is set for. You can try changing it to English (UK) if its not already on that if that is what you want. You Tap on the current language displayed and you get a list.

    Regarding getting the required voices when you have decided what Language you want the unit to work with then advise here and we can ask one of the Mods to add the appropriate voices to your account so you can add them to the unit.

    Hi @Aks1991_Tom

    I assume the account you use the GO6200 on is the same as you log on to in this forum.

    Hopefully @VikramK can add the voices today otherwise it will be Monday before he will be back on the forum.

    I have not used Forums before so I thought I had to create new account to access this forum.
    My account to GO6200 is different? What do I need to do now to get Mods done/sent?

    Hi Lampard,

    Many thanks for the mods to down load Serena and Malcolm voices onto my Tomtom unit.

    The Voice control now works fine.

    Thanks also to DougLap for all the help and advice.

    Welcome to the community! Check for updates now... The voice(Serena) should be offered as a download :)

    'Malcolm' is not compatible with the GO 50/51 device.

    Thanks, Vikram
