Cannot select computer voice on Tom Tom 930

Hi,

I've downloaded a computer voice to my Tom Tom 930. Using my computer browser I can see that it is on the device but when I use the voice selection menu on the 930 only normal voices are listed, not computer generated ones. There is plenty of space left on the Tom Tom 300+Mb. I notice that the computer voices appear in a differnt subfolder. Any suggestions how to activate the voice(s)

Thanks

I eventually found out that pressing the reset pin and re-starting allowed me to access the computer voices.

HOW DO I GET MY TOM TOMXL TO SPEAK STREET NAMES ? FOR EXAMPLE, IT WILL SPEAK TURN LEFT 100 YARDS, BUT DOES NOT SPEAK STREET NAME


you need to select a computer voice. no gps can say street names while using a human voice.

tap the map screen, then preferences, then scroll to the 4th page where it says change voice and select a computer voice.

if you need more help, just reply to this post

Hi there can someone tell me how to choose the langauge on the set. Ours eems to speak German and English would be preferred!!


Tap on the screen to bring the Main menu up -> Select 'Change Preference' - Tap Right scroll 'Bold Pointer' -> Change voice -> Select required Voice that is not Greyed out - > Test -> Select

(if you do not have a desired 'Voice', you can download some free ones to your GPS unit while connected to 'Tom Tom Home' facility and the internet.

TOm TOm XL 340s and it does not announce street names


hi, it wont announce street names if you have the human voice selected. you must use the computer generated voice du,b as it sounds, thats the way it is.

go tp the change voice option and select a computer generated voice and try again..it should prompt you that you have selected one or the other.

if this fails, let me know and i can give you something else to try

Large white X in red circle flashing



This works for most tomtoms so there is nothing to loose and everything to gain

Remove the SD card

The card needs to be formatted properly first that's all,

formatting is better done in a card reader.(opionions vary)

Right click on it and select format select FAT32 as the files system

Now connect the tomtom but don't let tomtom home run. exit TTH if need be.

You now ned to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive.

In windows explorer select tools then folder options. Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders"
It may warn you but you can ignore it.

then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your sd card

DO NOT USE CUT AND PASTE !

Once all the files are on switch off the tom tom and insert the sd card

It should now work

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

Tomtom xl 330.s wont speek street 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 !!

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.
