    The voice has stopped working. The drumming comes on when switched on, but the voice for directions is not functioning. The volume is set to 100 and its not on mute. What is the solution? Any DIY (Do It Yourself) solutions?

Connect the TomTom to your PC via the USB cable and allow all the updates to be applied, there should be a patch applied to resolve this problem

Hi I have a to tom go 500. The voices worked fine when I tested it in New Zealand. I then downloaded the Europe map, assumed all was well but on arriving in Europe I find that I cannot get the voice...


It may be possible that the (Europe) map version that you have doesn't have voice instructions (data) that is compatible with the navigation software (that you have on the TomTom GO 500). If you can indicate the navigation software version and the Europe map version, that possibility can be checked further.

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

Not speaking street names


To get your TomTom to speak street names, you will need to change the voice from a recorded voice to a computer voice. This can be done by:
  • Connect your TomTom to your computer
  • When the TomTom asks do you want to connect to the computer, choose Yes
  • Open the TomTom Home application
  • Click on the 'Add Traffic, Voices, Safety Cameras, etc.' button
  • Click on the 'Voices' button
  • Click on the 'Computer Voices' button
You can now select a voice to install on the device.
Once you have installed a voice, change it by
  • Disconnect the TomTom from your computer
  • Turn on the TomTom
  • Touch the screen to bring up the menu
  • Touch 'Change Preferences'
  • Touch 'Voice Preferences'
  • Touch 'Change Voice'
  • Use the Left / Right arrows to navigate to the voice you just installed (Look for the word 'computer' in the upper right corner by the male/female option)
  • Touch the 'Select' button

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

Who do i turn voices off while listening to mp3s


If you go to change preferences you should see a voice preferences icon, tap it and you should see a disable voice with a red x over the icon. Just tap it and it should disable all of the voice instructions on the unit.

I say should since it works on my 720 and should on yours.

Computer voices


Hi,

Thanks for the acknowledgement.
Sometimes ( mostly in fact ) there is more than one files ascociated with a voice. One file is for the Icon to show you on the tomtom what voice it is ( its the little picture ) . the other file is the voice data itself. So , in that case you would need to download both files to get the voice. Once you have them on your PC you need to copy both files to the "Voices Folder " on your TomTom SD card or Hard Drive ( some tomtomts have a small hard drive fitted ) .
OK , so once you have the files on your TomTom and in the right folder you would then need to switch on the TomTom and go to preferences , then change voice in order to select that voice on your TomTom.

Good luck.

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.

It would help to know the model and software version...

But anyway, on v7 software:
- Download the voice of choice
- Copy them to /voice(s) folder, cant remember if the folder name includes the s or not, but you will find out...

Start unit, choose correct voice from preferences menu.
It should be that simple.

Or, if you preffer to do it through TT Home:

Tomtom 1 stopped talking


Check in preferences > Change Voice to make sure that a voice is selected. If it is, it probably corrupted. Pick a new voice. If none of the other voices work, plug your TomTom into your computer and boot up TomTom HOME and reinstall the voices. If after that they still don't work, contact TomTom support and ask them for advice. They will probably have you send it in for repair on broken speakers.

Please rate, Thank you!
