Support has ceased on my old device so I've just invested in the Go Premium X. On my old device I had the voices of Stephen Fry & Roger Moore. My last purchase was just short of 7 years ago, so I got full value for my £7.95. Is there a way of buying these for my new device, or adding other actors' voices

    Hi @MarkRamon

    Hopefully @VikramK will pick this up tomorrow and if they are compatible add the voices to your account so you can add them to the Premium.

    Doug & Vikram, I can't begin to imagine what dark arts were employed for you to do this for me ! I'm just very grateful & happy to have my old navigators back. Thank you so much !!

    Hi @MarkRamon

    Hi I received my new TomTom Go Premium X yesterday and very pleased with it.
    However I beleived that it would be possible to use my Go Live voice of Billy Connely..
    How do I find it?

    Hi @BelgraveDavid

    If the voice is compatible with the new unit then hopefully @VikramK can add it to your account so you can add it to the Unit. Look back here later.

    I used the John Otway voice on my old first series TomTom and still have the file saved on my computer. I don’t see any way of adding it to my brand new TomTom GO Premium. Is it possible as I quite enjoy John telling me that I’ve gone the wrong way and telling me to turn around and go back! 😁

    Hi @costello993
    Adding custom voices on the GO PREMIUM, unfortunately, is not supported.
    If you wish I can activate some computer voices for your TomTom..

    Thanks, Vikram

    Hi Vikram,
    That’s disappointing, wish I’d known that before purchasing. Would probably not have bought if I knew.
    Please activate some computer voices.

    Thanks.

    I've just upgraded to a GO Premium X and would love to get the soothing tones of Stephen Fry back. Is this possible?

    Hello there. I bought the Darth Vader voice for my old device in 2010. Can I add to my new GO Premium? I miss him so!

    Hi @UncleK -

    As of 22-7-21, (taken from the section GO Discover & GO Expert -
    “Bought new device not able to find voices”)
    Moderator VikramK has informed that:

    “Just like maps and LIVE services, voices are non-transferable.
    As an exception, we used to activate them on the account for our users who bought a new device.
    Recently a decision was taken to discontinue all paid/celebrity voices, unfortunately, we won't be able to re-assign them on the account. Sorry.”

    Thanks,
    Vikram
