    On my XLS there is no room for 2 computer voices. The file is too big. You have to delete one before you install one. I put Dave on mine and did not like it. I am currently using Kate. English but easier to understand than Dave.

    Start TTHome with our unit connected. Click on Add Maps/Voices icon. NOW, arrow right 2 screens and you'll see Computer voices. Click that.

    I too went nuts with my XL-S and the different voices. What a toy....for a while.

    I downloaded C3P0, John Cleese and Mr. T. They are funny, and fun to listen to for a while, then you want real directions with correct street names. The only way to get that is to go back to 'Computer Voices'.

    I have had the 'novelty' voices for a few months now, and do not use them. I plan to remove them within a few days.

    Well, an obvious question ..... does your model handle TTS (text to speech) voices? Not all do. Do you have a LoquendoTTS folder in your unit (use Explorer to see). You need the contents of that to make the voices work.

    Use Home to look at Contents of My Unit. Is a voice listed?

    These are things to check.

    If you have the TomTom ONE XL model, it does not support computer voices. You need the ONE XL-S or higher. I found this out the hard way as well.
