Satnav - no voice prompts

I upgraded to Tomtom navigator 5 on my Palm Zire72. Despite much correspondance with Tomtom, I can't activate any voice prompts, though everything else works fine. Voice prompts worked fine on previous version. Anyone else had this, or know how to fix it?

Don't know if it will help, but do you have the latest version for the Palm PDA click here , also at the risk of stating the obvious have you checked the sound is not muted on the PDA also that you have sound enabled in the preferences of the Tom Tom software.

Thanks, Klof Ron, but I have already checked all your suggestions. Still no voices.

Have you tried checking the "Volume Preferences" to check the sound is turned up, also uncheck the "Link volume to speed of car" option, also what happens when you go to "Change voices" option and select a voice and press "Test" do you get any sound.

Thanks again, Klof Ron. But still no joy. When I try to change voices or test voices I get the error message "You did not select a useable voice."

The forum mentioned by Bagsey is for "TomTom-Go" only, not for TomTom navigator 5. The other forums should be of assistance.

TomTom`s own support phone number is:

0845 161 0009

However, it may take a long time to get through; they are always busy. Good luck!.
