Hi,

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.

Good Luck.

Normally the voice commands are only available in the "Computer generated voice" mode. If you select any other voice, the feature is disabled. Hope this helps

Can not get voice comands


if you mean like "turn right on Madison" as an example, you must have the tts voice selected ...that is the computer generated voices...it will not work with human voices....


go in the system setting and go to the voice option, and see if you have any TTS voices...if not, they may have been deleted..if so, go HERE and download the web updater and 1st see if there are any updates, then after that it will give you an option to add voices...just select one or some that are TTS...after there loaded to your gps, go back in the voice option and change it to one of the TTS voices.

if you mean you have no sound at all, post back and i will help you further.

Gps will not announce street names, highway's, etc. Important note: it had been announcing this data since I bought the GPS in December but just recently stopped doing so.


You have to change the voice to a computer voice. Go to where you choose voices on the main menu Change preferences > Voice preferences > Change voice. Find a voice with the word "computer" in the name and select it. At that point you will be asked what you want to be announced. By the way, this is called "text to speech" in TomTom talk.

Lost the voice on my garmin nuvi


Go to settings, you will see blank box for language settings (where you tell it to use TTS or normal or other spoken language etc.) select language of your choice again. You will be all set. Nuvi tends to loose its voice settings sometimes.

My garmin 760 stopped speaking street names


I had the same problem and wrote Garmin for help. Here is the solution:
Thank you for contacting Garmin International. I'll be glad to help you with this. Please check the voice settings of your Nüvi. Starting on the main menu, select: Tools (wrench)> Settings> Language> Voice. The voice setting should be set on an option with (TTS). This stands for "text-to-speech" and is function of the unit that allows it to speak actual street names.

In other words you must choose a language with (TTS) after it such as American English-Jill (TTS)

I hope this helps everyone.

Portable GPS


All of the Garmin automotive GPS units that speak street names are also loaded with basic voice prompts. If one of these types of voice prompts has been selected, the voice prompts will not speak street names.

In order to change this setting on the StreetPilot c550/580, please follow these steps:
  1. In the Main Menu, tap on the Settings icon.
  2. Tap on "Locale"
  3. The second line on this screen has a picture of a mouth. To the right, the current voice for the GPS device is listed. Tap it to change the voice.
  4. Select a voice that is labeled with (TTS) at the end. These voices will speak street names.
  5. Select "OK". The voice has now been changed.
Your device should now speak street names.

Nuvi 660 audio update?


This series of Nuvi has 2 sets of voices for several of the available languages. The standard set is pre-recorded words linked together to form directions. This voice is usually clearer. However you lose street names and expanded vocabulary. The Text-To-Speech (TTS) voices are reading letters to form words, and uses an algorithm to come up with the approximate pronunciation of the word. This may sound less clear, but provides street names. So, you can select a standard voice (settings-locale-voice language) and lose some functionality, or select one of the many TTS voices and try to find one that doesn't offend the ear.
