Req voice selection everytime and reboots when selected
It used to work fine - for about a year.
My tomtom is in an infinite loop. When I start it, it now requires you to select a language. Unfortunately when I do it starts to freeze up and then restarts itself sending me right back where I started. The long/short of it is that it no longer works.
I am currently running Windows "Error Checking" on it with both "Automatically fix file system errors" and "Scan and attempt recovery of bad sectors" checked. I'll post if it works.

You have not set a (male or female) voice to be used by your Tomtom One device: use 'Change preferences' -> use Right arrow to get second creen for your preference 2 of 5 -> 'Change voie' -> scroll to 'select a voice' -> Click 'Test' to hear selected voice sample dialog -> Finally, click 'Select' when you are happy with the selected voice. If you need additional voices, use TomTom Home to download them. Hope it helps: let me know how you go!
i had the problem that when selecting the voice, the device would freeze up then restart sending me to the beginning of the preferences. what i did to fix this is connect the device to my laptop and start tomtom home. on the third page select operate my device. this let me finish selecting the preference options through the computer. after that my gps came up.
I to had this same problem. I just about pulled my hair out. The way I fixed mine was to use Tom Tom Home to operate the Tom Tom. It was able to get past the loop and finish the initial set up. I then unhooked it from the computer and it was working by itself.
1. Once you have turned on your TomTom tap the screen.
2. Tap 'Change preferences'
3. Tap the arrow to get to page 2 of Preferences
4. Tap 'Change voice'
5. Tap arrows until you get a computer voice - I chose Samantha.
6. Tap the 'Select' button to the right of the voice picture.
7. This screen is labelled 'Speech preferences' and the first one is 'Read aloud street names'
8. Tap the box to the right to select this preference.
You need to put the File / files associated with the voice onto your SD card in the Voices folder.
Use an SD card reader and your PC to look on the TomTom SD card. Find the folder called "VOICES". Copy the John Cleese voice files into the "VOICES" folder.
Once this is done put the SD card back in your TomTom. Switch on. When the TomTom starts up , tap the screen and select "Preferences" , then move through Preferences until you find "Lips" icon and under that it will say " Change Voice" . Tap the Lips Icon , then move right or left until you find the required / John Cleese Voice and select that. Your Tom Tom should now give directions with the John Cleese voice.
Please note: Some voices that you can download free of the internet can contain viruses or if you are unlucky they can contain faulty data which can effect the workings of your TomTom.
As a precaution , before you copy or alter or add anything to your TomTom SD card you should make a Backup of your SD card onto a PC. The if anything gets upset on your SD card you can always format it and restore the origonal data.
