Hi our tomtom go 520 has stopped speaking to us. It is not the volume thats turned down, suspect it may be the speaker as it was squealing. Thanks, john


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

The voice on Garmin stopped working


Hi

Please do this and let me know results.

If your device is not providing navigational prompts the language settings on the device will need to be checked:
  1. Turn the device on
  2. Touch Tools
  3. Touch Settings
  4. Touch Language
  5. Touch the blue box under Voice

If this section has your desired voice please make sure this voice is selected which will resolve the issue.

If the above fails or the unit doesn’t list the voice/s that you require you will need to update the software and reload the voice/s back to the device via WebUpdater. To install WebUpdater please click the link below:

http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

Once installed and the software is updated please make sure that you check for additional updates which should provide you with a number of voices to reinstall to your device.

Once reinstalled your problem should be resolved.

Let me know

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.

My tom tom one has lost its voice


From the main menu tap preferences.

To change the volume, tap Volume preferences in the Preferences menu. You will probably see a little "speaker" icon with an X through it. Tap this to turn the sound back on.
To change the volume quickly while you are driving, tap the bottom left-hand section of the Driving View and move the slider.

To change the voice, tap Change Voice in the Preferences menu.

Help - my Garmin 260W no longer announces street names. How can I get this feature to reactivate????


All of the Garmin automotive GPS units that speak street names are also loaded with basic voice prompts (i.e. 'Turn Right in 500 feet') as well as 'text-to-speech' voices that speak street names. If one of the basic types of voice prompts has been selected, the voice prompts will not speak street names.
In order to change this setting, please follow these steps:
  1. Touch Tools (Wrench Icon) from the Main Menu
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Touch Language*
  4. Touch on the blue rectangle that corresponds with Voice
  5. Touch on a voice that is labeled with (TTS) at the end. These voices will speak street names. Options without a name or the TTS label will say the distance until the next turn, but will not include the street name.
  6. Touch Ok
The voice has now been changed.

If this is not what you meant, please reply with further details. If you found the solution resolved your issue, kindly take a moment to award this a Fixya rating in appreciation of my efforts.

Thank you.

Set up voice John Cleese


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.

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.

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.
