I recently purchased a Tomtom XL330S It is supposed to speak street names but so far it only says things like " turn right at the end of the road " or " at the end of the road turn left ". Is there a setting that is not turned on? What am I missing? Thanks in advance

I have the TomTom XL V2 UK, ROI & Europe and it doesn't speak the street names, if that's what you mean. Presumably your model is the same. Check the specifications to see if 'Text to speech' is supported. If not, it won't say the names.
Yes Nickarino is right.
When I switched on my new tom tom it gave me that option to speak street names and it vanished after selected a different voice.
I checked all manuals and web references in Tom Tom - none of them list it.
Like Nick said - what you need to do is swtich the voice type to SAMANTHA and it will show the option "Read Street Names Loudly".
I jumped on it and said yes ..!!!
Thanks Nick !!
It will only tell you the names of the streets if you use the COMPUTER voice. The other voices will not announce street names. So go to your voice selection and pick the computer voice...either male or female.
I had the same problem with the TomTom One. What you need to do is this:
When you select a voice preference you have to use a "computer" voice as it seems the "human" voice cannot pronounce the street names. I don't know if your model has the same choices but mine is set to "Samantha, English US"
Hope this helps
