Is it possible to use this with Navigator 6 on symbian/s60?

Clicking through, it doesn't seem to want to let me buy it without having the "new" tomtom home installed, and IIRC that version of home doesn't work with the old mobile naviator...

I tried sneakily copying the .bmp/.chk/etc for the voice from my brother's standalone GO unit (he managed to successfully purchase the voice, eventually, after receiving only an error message when they took his money intially..). Anyway, all it did on my phone was freeze when selecting the voice.

Are they not backwards compatible these days?

No idea but they are locked to the device they were bought for and cannot be copied/shared.
