What information does the "computer voice" provide that the "recorded voice" does not when using the TT GO?

    Hello @jacare60! Recorded voices give you the spoken instructions for your route but won't read street names and other information.

    If you choose a recorded voice, you can only see two 'Instruction settings' (under Main Menu> Settings> Voices) options in the list. With a computer voice, you can have several options for the voice to read early institutions, road numbers, signs, etc.

    Best, lampard

    Further to this question about Computer vs Recorded voices. In MyDrive Connect I can see several voices to download to my device but there is no indication as to whether they are Computer or Recorded, is there a way to tell or a list somewhere I can refer to. The same does for the TomTom site. Loads to choose from but nothing that tells me what type they are.

    Of course it is always possible that I am not looking properly :-)

    Thank you for your help.

    Example 100 KO = recorded voices. 50 MB = computer voice that can read street names

    OK, the computer voices are a much larger download, but I'm not sure that helps me choose them, this is just a list of names https://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/navigation/maps-services/navigation-voices/, no sizes. This is the same in MyDrive Connect.

    What am I missing?

    If it is for the application you cannot download other voices than the one available on the application.
