I bought a tomtom 920t in the US, however cannot use voice recognition for addresses in the UK. Only seems to work for US addresses in the US maps. Is there any way to add this feature to my tomtom now back in UK?

Hopefully this will fix your tt910, I followed the instructions below and my tt910 is now working fine.
Please download software from attached links and save it on you computer desktop / connect tomtom to computer and close "tomtom home when it starts / select and copy all 5 downloaded files / open "my computer" / right click on drive where tomtom is located and paste / select "yes to all" when windows ask if you want replace existing files ,this will refresh software on your device and maps should work .
I phoned tomtom help line, they sent me a download by email which i ran on the tomtom which wipes the flash memory clean. Then did a download of latest tomtom operating system form tomtom Home software. When i tried to setup wireless data connection i couldnt believe how quick and easy it done it and now works amazing fast to find traffic updates in secs !!
They told me that if you have used the tomtom with a few phones and changed a lot of settings the flash memory gets full and thats what made it stuggle to connect and was slow.
Im so pleased it was driving me mad !!
Hope you resolve urs the same. The number is 08451610009
Well it looks like your'e an investigative type of guy and you digging around is getting to the bottom of your problems. I think you are very much on track and narrowing the possibilities and your last sentence brings out down to just 2 possibilities . I think logic is telling you that downloading voices won't cause a charging problem . I agree , voices can cause wierd things to happen software wise and I know this becuase I ahve seen it several times myself. Especially where it makes the screen look damaged. I had a tomtom one V2 here that ended up with a green only screen with black lines down it and that turned out to be a corrupted celebrity voice file. I never found out which voice it was but just deleted all the celebrity voices and hey presto the screen came back to normal.
Anyway , back to your problems. I see no logical connection between downloading voices and a charging issue . The battery charges by physical connection and regulation through electronic components and also becuase it charges the battery even whilst the TomTom is switched off then we can be confident that any software has no influence on battery charging. This tells us that out of the 2 possibilities you have narrowed it down to it must be a "contact" issue. Also because you wasn't aware of the release button you were actually disenguaging the TomTom from it's mount incorrectly. So, to sum up : .... we have .... 1/ cause ..... 2/ symptoms ...... 3/ cure ... = new car mount required.
The rubber bungs often come out but it doesnt usually effect the charging although the rubber bung is there to help reduce vibration when used with a mount in a car. I have had many 910's here in the past with the bungs missing but never had any problem with them latching into the mount. I would think your problem is either some other plastic part is worn or broken. However , if you feel that the problem is the bung then I would go with your instinct but you might have to find something else to fit in the hole as parts are not readly available for TomToms unless you buy a whole unit thats faulty to use as parts / spares. Im'e sure something could be made to fit possibly part of an eraser or similar rubber part. You might also be able to use a small rubber cable grommet or similar.
As far as I know , it isnt possible to get a virus on to the TomTom as such but it is possible to get corrupted data on the hard drive ( or SD card with other models ) especially if you download things such as voices etc. I have had TomToms here were owner has downloaded comic voices and the files have caused very strange things to happen with the TomTom. I even had one where a voice file was making it look like the screen was damaged , so , your'e correct in thinking that way. In your case though , I doubt if the dowloaded voices have effected the charging , its more likely the poorly fitting mount thats casuing your problems.
If you manage to get the green light on ( this only shows power is going to the TomTom , it does NOT confirm charging ) then leave it for a few hourse before attempting to turn the TomTom on as that will ensure a resonable amount of charge especially if you battery is very flat.
Hope this helps . ( please rate the above reply if you think its helpful in any way )
The error during planning is a map error not an OS error. It will give you this warning if you try to nav somewhere that it cant see any way of getting to because there is a gap somewhere en-route. Normally its the last 100 yards or something. The workaround is to nav to an adjoining road or somewhere very close to where you want to end up. Oddly or maybe coincidentally (which I doubt at 60,000 miles per year) I have only had this happen on the new maps.
As far as I know there is no PPC2003 upgrade. Normally there should not be any problem with TomTom3. If you want try to install a last image 1.06.23.xxx. Check please Toshiba download site.
I have found info that TomTom5 can not be used with Toshiba PDAs. Not yet. Since October that should be possible. Check TomTom web page.
