Can i download tomtom extras on to a Mac laptop? If not can I change to a PC and put Tom Tom home on that? For some reason I thought you could only have it on one computer.
Thanks.

So mine voice didn't show up on my tomtom... here's what i did to fix it:

- Follow the instructions for the .vif files
- Make sure it's .chk file is the same as the one in the folder
I think my yoda one was different
- Make sure the name is eight letters or less (darth vader won't fit)
I just copied the same numbers as the example because I didn't
want to take any chances even though they probably don't matter
delete the bmp files-they don't really matter. Instead of leaving the .vif and .chk files in the folder, paste them outside and delete the folder.

...there ya go !

Not all of these steps are necessary (probably) but it makes all the files in the voices folder look uniform and it works.

And yes, this works for macs.

When you plugin your tomtom, it loads it like a USB drive, so you can change it like you would any other drive. But as far as I know, to run easyusetools, you need to install parallels or bootcamp.
