Hi, ten years ago, my daughter who was eleven at the time, recorded her voice onto my TomTom 720 go. I am trying to find a way to transfer this to my new Go 6250. Has anyone got any ideas?

    Sorry to say but the new WiFi devices can not be personalised, only voices purchased from TomTom can be added

    That's a shame, because we'd got quite attached to hearing her voice on the device, and didn't want to completely lose it. Do you know if it's possible to save the voice by transferring the files from the old device to a PC, maybe by using TomTom home, or some other method?

    Using 'File Explorer' find the 'voices' directory on the old device then copy the '.bmp' , '.chk' , '.tlv' and '.vif' files. The .bmp file most likely an image of your daughter
