Under menu settings you can adjust the volume and even turn off the voice. So you probably have the voice turned off and you will have to turn back on again in the menu.

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.

Voice frequently not working. this problem intermittent. what do i need to do to ensure voice always works? Turning sound off and on again sometimes works. Turning on before using sometimes gets voice...


Are you using a synth voice, or a sampled voice? If the latter, one of the voice files might be damaged, and in that case, as soon as the Tomtom accesses it, the whole voice function will shut down.

Try changing the voice and see what happens. The synth voice does not access any sample files and should always work (or never at all).

To restore the functionality, download again the voice files, or try restoring from the PC backup. At least, this worked for me when I had the same problem (but MY file was damaged at the end, so I was able to notice that the last thing the Tomtom said was always "In sevent*". The damaged file was, I suppose, the one with the word "seventy".

Is there a way to change the voice on the NVE P1


There is no indication in the user's manual that the voice can be changed. Only the volume of the voice and whether you get a voice annoucement or not, but you can't chage the voice itself.

No street names spoken


Have you selected an electronic voice? If you have a "standard" voice or have used a "celebrity" download voice, it won't give computed responses for street names.
Go to voices, change voice and try a digital/electronic voice. If not installed, use TomTom home to download an electronic voice.
Hope this helps

My text to speech functionality where the GPS read street names is not working on my TOMTOM XL 330 S. I have it set to the computer voice and the volume up but I actually get no voice instructions at all....


When you go to change prefernces/change voice don't use a recorded voice instead use the arrow forward or back to get to computer voice. Then you can select "read aloud street names"

How do I use the voice command?


HI Con613,
Voice command is one of the feature of the mobile. It is important and if u understand it, it is very easy and useful to us.
Voice command is used to perform some sort of function (such as to open apps, camera, voice recorder, etc. and to call peoples) by giving voice command.
For it u need to go to voice command in tools in menu, then a list of apps appears. In it, u choose 1 apps, then it gives command to record voice. Record any voice of urs as command for it. When in standby mode or desktop, hold right soft key until voice command appears. Then give the same voice as recorded before to open the choosen apps.
Same process is to be applied for the apps.
For dialling people from voice command, u need to go to the person's contact. Go to options of it and add a voice as command for it. And same process is to be applied as to open the apps.
thank you
===============================================
It is for mobile users.
If it is helpful for u, u can feedback me.
And i will help u later in other problems.

Voice Navigation


Check your voice prompts.  make sure you are using either Jack or Jane.  the standard voice is the same as the voice on C330 which only gives you directions.
