FAQ: How Do I Install My TomTom Voice?
TomTom voices are delivered as a .zip file containing three files. Save the .zip file and unzip (extract). All files have the same name but different file extensions. For example:
data99.chk - contains encrypted audio files
data99.vif - voice information file
data99.bmp - voice image
Just copy the three (unzipped) files to the 'voices' folder of your TomTom and you are ready to go!
* If the file names as delivered conflict with an existing voice on your device, you can change the file names as necessary, so long as they are all the same. You must also use any text editor (such as NotePad) to change the file name WITHIN the .vif file on the second line.
** All TomTom voices are locked to a single device. Installing voices with the incorrect encryption code may cause your device to cease functioning properly.
