About 2 years back I think I purchased some premium voices for my 6200 I think. I want to buy some more, but have no idea if this is possible anymore? Can't find any of the voices in the store, but also no notification of discontinuation.

    Only the free one seem available here https://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/sat-nav/maps-services/shop/navigation-voices/

    But if you are lucky and list the ones you want, and if they are compatible with your 6200, maybe one of the moderators ( @VikramK or @lampard ) can assign them to you

    Thanks for the information @Niall
    Sounds stupid, but the option of being able to buy premium voices was one of the main selling points for me - I'll never get tired of Daria and KITT, but my partner hates them with great intensity. So I was gunning for some of the Star Wars voices - Darth Vader and C3PO, but I'm not even certain they were on the available for the GO.

    Sorry @Windows95
    The decision was taken a few days ago to discontinue the celebrity voices.
    They are no longer available on our webshop, and so we have stopped assigning them to the account.

    Okay wow, so this was nowhere announced, just discontinued out of the blue and I'm a few days too late with no lenience period? That kind of sucks if you've invested 300+ euroes counting on this particular thing. Guess I'll start looking for another way of navigation if you really don't want my money.

    Why do you revoke purchased items? If I buy a bookshelf the company won't remove any books I bought from it :s

    It doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Even less that they decided not to communicate about it to those of us who purchased. It is really frustrating and maddening.
