Hi
You just need to copy downloaded voice files to your device.

Instructions:

1. Save downloaded folder to your PC, for example in "C:\tomtom\voices"

2. Switch on your TomTom and connect it to the computer (USB cable)

3. Click the Windows Start logo at the bottom left of your screen, then click on "My Computer" and you should see the your TomTom ( e.g. Devices with Removable Storage with a small icon). Double click on the icon and the TomTom's folder view will open.

4. If you have a folder labelled "voices", double click it, otherwise you'll need to store you voice files in the root folder (the first folder you see, after following Step 3). PDA and pocket GPS users with TomTom software may need to copy saved files to folder mobile device/my documents

5. Copy any of the voice files from the folder ( all 3 files: CHK, BMP and VIF) and paste into the folder voices or tomtom root folder (i.e. copy all the files to that folder: data88.chk and data88.bmp and data88.vif).

6. You can save as many tomtom voices as you want.

7. After pasting the last voice wait about 30 seconds, and then remove your USB cable. Your tomtom will reboot and you will be able to activate selected voice.


To change a voice on your TomTom:
1. Tap the centre of the screen:
2. Tap "Change Preferences "
3. Click the right arrow, three times.
4. Now select "Change Voice"
5. Use the right and left buttons to scroll around your available voices.

Note to pocket GPS and PDA users with TomTom software:
In step 4 you may need to save downloaded voices to "mobile device"/"my documents"

Easy.

open up your vif file in notepad. it should looks something like this.

English (UK) - ClintEastwood-HotShot
data72.chk
Clint
1
0
-1
1


A .VIF file can have 7 lines.

Line 1 – Name (old style, may be left empty for newest software)
Line 2 – Filename of the corresponding .chk file
Line 3 – Name
Line 4 – Number representing gender - ‘0’ = young, ‘1 ’= female, ‘2’ = male.
Line 5 – Number representing language
Line 6 – Number representing flag
Line 7 – Version number


Name – This is the name of your voice, which can be between one and eight characters long.

Now, if any of those lines are missing, you can add them and save the file. It do not really matter what numbers you add.

The celebrity voices for TomTom are cool but they are useless in actual navigation. TomTom disappointed me on this one.

TomTom - Voice Information File (.vif)

The .vif file stores information about the voice file that is used to control the display. It is a simple text file and can look like this:

Clint Eastwood
data99.chk
Clint Eastwood
2
2
114
1

This seven line file may be edited with Notepad. The seven lines are defined as follows:

Line 1 – Name (have not seen this appear anywhere)
Line 2 – .chk voice filename (voice files work even when this is incorrect)
Line 3 – Display Name
Line 4 – Gender and silhouette code - ‘0’ = young, ‘1 ’= female, ‘2’ = male.
Line 5 – Language code
Line 6 – Flag Code
Line 7 – Version number

I obtained the following results in my testing of language and flag codes:

Line 5 – Language codes

0. English UK
1. Deutsch
2. English US
