You can use the ogg file speed camera warnings on the PDA software but the LoquendoTTS is only used/ supported on the stand alone navigation devices - it won't work on your PDA phone so forget the idea - Mike

The instructions are on the same page as the voice files.
http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/speed-camera-alerts-tomtom.php#installation

The relevant sections are:

Quote:
Method 1
1. Extract the contents of the downloaded zip file and copy these to the map folder on your device. The suitably named ogg files should be placed into the map folder where your POIís are located, do not put them in a sub-folder.
2. With the files in place start TomTom Navigator and go to Change Preferences/ Manage POI/ Warn when near POI (this MUST be done even if your camera POIís have been previously configured).
3. Select the first camera in the list, if asked whether you want to delete or remove the warning answer NO.
4. You should now be asked to select the warning distance, followed by the Warn Only if POI on route Ė please set-up these options as per your normal preference, remember everyone will use different settings dependent upon how they use the device.
5. Now repeat the above, setting up the POI warning for EACH camera category you have installed to the device.

Version 7/8 Note:

With the arrival of Version 7 & now 8 there is a small bug/change that affects the procedure. If you have installed the .ogg file packs you will be asked to choose a sound but will not be offered any options, this is normal. You will be asked 'Is this the sound you want?'. You should answer Yes on this screen. If you do, you will then see the warning distance screen and can proceed as normal.
If you mistakenly answer No then you may get a message saying No Photographs and the unit will freeze. If you have mistakenly done this, simply reset the device and start again, this time answering Yes when prompted.

Method 2
With the arrival of v7 software a new method is now available that allows you to add your own sounds or voices for POI warnings.
If you explore your TomTom device with a file manager (e.g. Windows Explorer, Finder etc) you should find an empty folder called "sounds" (if not, then you can manually create one). Any .wav or .ogg format sound files you paste into this folder will appear on the same page as the usual Sound Effects such as "Bell1", "Cow" etc. You can also paste folders containing collections of sound files in this "sounds" folder and they will appear as clickable folders.

Ogg files are preferred as their file sizes are much smaller than wavs. If you need to convert .wav files to .ogg format you can use the free sound editor "Audacity" to achieve this. Note that .wav files can be 11025kHz or 16kHz sample rate but MUST be 16 bit. 8 bit samples will be displayed as options on the page but cannot be played.

All the TomTom format sound files available here are compatible with this installation method, you can place them in the sounds folder, select them and preview them in the same way you can the other built-in sound effects.

The only problem here is that the naming convention we use puts pocketgps_ at the beginning of the filename. This is necessary to support our preferred installation method above which requires the sound files have identical file names to the database files they are intended for use with. This results in the part of the name which identifies the sound effect being at the end i.e. pocketgps_uk_gatso_30.

When you see the files on the sound effects page, only the first 10 or so characters of the name get shown, so they will all just show "PocketGPSWo...". Either use the 'preview' button to hear them first or rename the files before copying to the sounds folder to make them more easily located i.e. gatso30, specs70 etc
