I have a really frustarting problem; I have d/l and unzipped the UK TomTom OV2 [UK - Speed Zoned Complete] into my TT Map of UK & Ireland folder, I have d/l and unzipped the "Nick" vioce alerts file into the same folder on my TT. Next I hit Change Preferences/ Manage POI/ Warn when near POI. I select say, pocketgps uk gatso 30 from the list, select warn when closer than 300m, say yes to is this the sound I want, tick warn only if POI on route, and then I get thrown back to the manage POI screen without having the chance to select an alert!! BTW if I select say Airport from the POI list I get offered the list of TT sounds and alerts I have d/l from the pocketgps site.
What am I doing wrong pls? Crying or Very sad

The voice alert files you have loaded are named in such a way that the software picks them up automatically, there is no need to select them the device does this association on its own, give it a try on the road or use Route Demo to prove its working OK (it will be) - Mike

There's a note about this on the voice installation instructions page:
Quote:
Version 7/8 Note:

With the arrival of Version 7 & now 8 there is a small bug/change that affects the procedure. If you have installed the .ogg file packs you will be asked to choose a sound but will not be offered any options, this is normal. You will be asked 'Is this the sound you want?'. You should answer Yes on this screen.


As Mike says, just carry on with the set-up and it should work, but if this slight confusion bothers you, continue down that instructions page and use "Method 2" instead.
