how to add your own custom poi and voices to iphone tomtom

First, if you have the Application already installed on your iPhone delete it. you can re-add the application from the itunes application after the changes have been made as below.

To add Voices –  navigate back to the to the uk-ireland.app folder and you will see a voices folder.

You cant add extra voices. You can only replace the existing voices with custom ones. I recommend you should backup all the voice fles first and then rename and replace the ones you want with your custom voices.

Once you are done customizing your tomtom iphone application, navigate back to the ‘Mobile Applications’ folder.
Rename backup the tomtom APP file by removing the  .zip you add to the end of the file.
