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

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

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.

Tom tom 130S will not speak street names


As far as I can tell the Tom tom 130S only speaks the street names when you use the computer voice (female, Amanda) and not any of the other voices.

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

We have a Garmin Nuvi 200. We want to know if we can get voice directions usinf street names with this model. ..............Tom (Connecticut)


No, the Nuvi 200 does not have text to speech for street names. You have to go with a higher model to do this, like the Nuvi 260.

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.
