    My new TomTom 130S doesn't say the street names, and I cannot check the the box on the preferences menu to activate this function -- the box is permanently gray.

    I bought a TomTom One 3rd Edition and it says on the box that it comes with a voice street names function, and it does not say the street names even after I have installed all updated map version etc on the free dowload you get with the purchase.

Hey.... I had a similar problem. Anyway... i fixed it. You got to use Samantha (the US computer voice) as your voice preference and then that box will be activated. ;)

Spoken street names


Try going to the menu and selecting the icon that allows you to change the voice on your GPS. When selecting a voice use one that has TTS at the end of the voice name. This should allow you to hear the street names as well as your destinations

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
