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 !!

Apparently only Samantha can speak street names. You may need to download her voice but it should be free. For me, she showed up as an automatic update from the TomTom site.

It depends on the voice that you use. It has to be the computer driven one. Plug your Tom Tom into your computer and select the computer generated voice in the settings.

I just downloaded and read your manual and i don't see anything about turning voice navigation on or off , but i do see volume maybe too low or volume muted , and possiblly you need to select a voice (male / female) .

TomTom® XL 330S GPS Receiver street names announced?


your xl will not say street names if its using a human voice, because it can not convert text to speech

you have to use the computer generated voice option to utilize the text to speech feature.

tap the map screen, the go in the preference option, then locate the change voice option.

on my xl its on the 4th page but your 330 may differ slighly.

it probably wont tell you which are computer or human generated, so youll have to experiment.

you can read about your voice options HERE

you can get a copy of your manual HERE if you need one.

My Tom Tom XL 330 S doesn't name the streets-just says TURN HERE


Hi,

When you choose a voice on your tomtom device, you will need to select a voice with the word 'computer' next to gender of the voice you select.

this will activate two option on the next screen allowing you to tick read street names.

Thanks,
Pabz

Speaking the names of major streets


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.
