On the recommendation of Tomtom I bought their GO6100 because they confirmed it would:
1 Accept POIs in bulk -Untrue
2. Accept speed cameras in bulk - Untrue
3. Accept text and convert to speech - Untrue
4. Accept voice "ogg" file - Untrue

I am currently awaiting their intentions.

Can anyone tell me if there is now any Satnav which will do what I want? Tomtom used to have all these in the past.

In hopes Question

Garmin will do 1 and 2

3. Not quite sure what you mean?
4. Garmin won't do ogg files AFAIK.

But it is possible to use Audacity and convert your ogg files to wav format which Garmins can use.

If you are looking for camera warning speech then there are wav voices readily available (here).

If you have bespoke ogg files though that you want to keep then follow dales advice.


TomTom know exactly what you are wanting to do and seem to be consistently giving out misleading advice.

Speed cameras are not POI's but to make a sale TT say they are.
