    Fear not. I had the same issue (and same initial anger!). Create a folder at the root directory of the SD card called VOICES. Put the VIF, BMP, and CHK files there. Apparently, the built-in voices can exist in the TOMTOM folder, but purchased ones need to go in VOICES. I figured this out reading the online docs for the <shudder> PocketPC version.

    TOMTOM!!! Time to write better documentation!!!!

    Are you guys able to successfully test the Cleese voice from within TT5? I can get it loaded in a "Voices" folder on the SD card and it will show up in the Select Voice menu. I am able to select the cleese voice but the 650 resets every time I try to test the voice to hear it. Odd...

    Emair,

    Thanks for the response. Your solution worked perfectly and I completely agree that TomTom's biggest weakness is their lack of support and documentation!

    Cmas,

    Yeah, I had the same reset when testing the Cleese voice. For some reason it appears the downloaded voices can't do a test. Just select it and when you run your route like normal the voice will work just fine.

    I had the same problem with the Cleese voice as well when trying to test. Treo kept on resetting. Just select Cleese voice and do not test. It will work fine after that. I was able to listen to him all day today while driving

    Good luck.

    I was disappointed that one the major highway extensions that took place TWO YEARS AGO was not updated on the map.

    How is the sound quality of John Cleese voice for TomTom 5? Is it as clear as the ones built-in?

    Yes. Very clear. I chuckle every time he says to get on the 'motorway'.
