    In the very very VERY short time I've had this TomTom ONE, I am having loads of fun with it. Even when not driving around. I did some searching today and started playing with making my own custom voice. As I was playing more and more with it I figured it would be nice to share in case anyone else out there was thinking of this....

    Here's his website:

    Hey battom,

    Do you find that you use your own voice more than the others now? I'm trying to decide if I want to take the time to do this. I would have to borrow a friend's PC. Thanks!

    I'm told I mumble... and after recording I hate my voice... it sounds different in my head then it does recorded anywhere. but isn't that always the case?

    It went very quick. No need to borrow a PC, just borrow a mic or go buy a cheapo. Just follow the directions ont he website listed above and you can't go wrong.

    I use my voice, but I'm waiting for my wife to have time to sit with me and record her instead. Besides.... I think Mandy has taken a liking to me.... hahaha

    Hmmm, I'll have to go back and check, but I believe those programs are all windows-based, thus the need to borrow a PC. I have a Mac. :)

    whoops... that's right. you're the Macky... sorry! They are windows based programs but you can do a little research to get Mac software....isn't that the newest MAC commercial? MAC does better with entertainment and design software than Mr. PC who is always getting sick from viri!!
