Since few weeks I got several voice updates with chinese/arabic names.

I'm not really interested to get these voices. Only to german voices are installed. Can I reject these updates in general?

    That means I have to install the updates of voices which are not installed?

    Guys, just turned my thing on and got the " Updates Available." Yep, I'll take the the cameras update but a very definate "NO" to a load more voices I don't want.

    And its another 5Mbytes. Maybe not important now but it might be one day. Yeah, I get the broader customer base but I'm sure these folk won't want the lovely Jane or her gorgeous sister.

    Guys, it occurs to add that it can't be rocket science to add a user switch to declare " NO MORE BLOODY VOICES".

    I'm still hoping for a user switch for "No Crappy Little Roads On My Route", they can be exhausting when you just want to get home safely.

    It would also help if, having de-selected these extra voices, they didn't get turned back o on the next visit to the updates corner on the menu.

    As a new owner/user of the Ride 550, this has been bugging me since purchase. I’ve Looked for a fix several times on the web and this is the first mention of other people also trying to stop unwanted additional downloads. Shame there is not a resolution. How many other people want to download additional voices in languages they will never use? 🤷🏻

    Hi
    @Dakster
    Just deleted all the voices except for Serena & Malcolm.... Using the method suggested by User 'nabu' in the above post....
    The GO Premium device reports it is up-to-date... 'NO' further voice updates reported....

    Thanks for the help nabu/YamFazMan :-)
    all sorted. I'm sure that should have been easier though.

    This does not help me as TomTom does not provide MyDrive Connect for Linux.

    Yep. Can't agree more regarding the total failure to support Linux.

    I hate Windows 10 it seems to suck my life away while I wait for it to do anything and at my age every second counts.

    Linux is so much quicker from cold and in every other respect.
