Deleting/Adding voices on Start 60

Hi,

I've got 2 problems I was unable solve by myself, even I spent hours on them...
(not at the same time or it would have driven me mad) :

1 - I can't delete some voices I don't use (ex: Budi & Irene, Bahasa Indonesia). I can't see these voices in "my content" in MyDrive Connect (so I can't select them to be deleted)... But they appear on my device !
Even after I deleted ALL THE VOICES except mine (French)... They're still there !!!
(they can be selected and they work)

2 - At the opposite,

a - the lists that appear in MyDrive Connect and on my device ARE DIFFERENT
the lists that appear in MyDrive Connect and there
https://www.tomtom.com/fr_fr/drive/maps-services/shop/navigation-voices/
are different also

b - I can't understand (or I didn't find how) I can't sort this list by language instead of... nothing else, so it's impossible to select anything properly (see next point)

c - in MyDrive Connect, I can see only the name of "the voice", but not the language !... ("not available")
So, if I want th download a new language, I'm obliged to download each one, one by one, test it, and then choose to keep or delete.... Amazing !

Please heeeelp !

Regards,
Gerard

    Hi
    @Gerard-63
    Welcome to the site.....
    Working 'OK' here in the UK
    I normally use the Serena UK TTS Computer Voice....

    Method... Using MyDrive Connect... Connected over USB....
    On the page header I selected 'My Content'
    Scroll Down to the Voices Menus....
    Checked in the Installed 'My language' Menu that Serena and Jane were installed... OK (I have Jane as a back-up voice)
    Clicked on the 'Installed Other languages' Menu... Top of the list ticked 'Selected All' —> 'Uninstall'
    The device updated....
    Clicked on Installed 'My language' Menu... Then one by one I deleted the displayed voices until only Serena and Jane remained on the list....

    I completed a Drumroll/Soft restart... Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound then release the on/off button.
    You won’t lose anything; it’s just like rebooting your PC
    When the device restarted... Only Serena and Jane were listed on the Start 60....

    I think the Drumroll/Soft restart is the fix for the problem….
    A Soft/Drumroll Restart on the device... The device restarts, tidies files, clears redundant data and restarts the Operating System afresh....

    RESETTING YOUR NAVIGATION DEVICE

    Charge the device for at least 2Hrs….
    (Preferably using something like a Smartphone Charger using the Tomtom USB lead)
    OR have the device plugged into a power supply while the device is restarting
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound then release the on/off button.
    You won’t lose anything; it’s just like rebooting your PC
    I use a Soft/drum-roll start after any upgrade large or small.
    It’s also useful to keep in mind for sorting out most minor niggles....

    Stay safe... ATB YFM
