There are three types of official TomTom navigation voices:

  • Standard voices that come pre-installed on every TomTom device. They are recorded voices and give you spoken instructions for your route.
  • Computer voices that use text-to-speech technology to read street names, incoming text messages, weather information, etc. Not all devices support computer voices.
  • Premium voices that have been recorded by celebrities and are available for purchase.

Order a free voice

Go to tomtom.com/voices, select the category Free and click Details, then Add to cart for the free voice you wish to install on your navigation device.

Note: You will need to go through the checkout and follow the on-screen instructions to receive the voice, but the amount to pay will be zero.


Purchase a premium voice
