Free TomTom Utilities, TomTom Voices and Downloads

One of the best features of the TomTom range of In Car SatNav systems is the ease of customisation. There's a wealth of voices and POI files available

This page was created to help add new voices and POI (Points of Interest) to the TomTom SatNav. Points of Interest help you find what you are looking for easily and quickly. For example, if you are a business traveller, your company may have given you a Shell Fuel Card and you may frequently use Premier Travel Inns. It would therefore make perfect sense for you to download the Shell POI file , and the Premier Travel Inn POI file. You'll then be able to plan your journey by "FIND>POI>POIin City>(type city)>Premier Travel Inn."

There are lots of free downloads available for the TomTom GPS or SatNav, including free TomTom voices, maps, POI and utilities to make your car journey better. Some TomTom's are supplied with an external SD card, but it's probably only 32mb, enough to support the files TomTom gave you with the package.

To get more from your TomTom, you can copy the files from the original TomTom card, to your own 2GB SD card so you can add many more POI files, Voices and Graphics. (Ensure you keep the original TomTom SD card safe)
