I to had this same problem. I just about pulled my hair out. The way I fixed mine was to use Tom Tom Home to operate the Tom Tom. It was able to get past the loop and finish the initial set up. I then unhooked it from the computer and it was working by itself.

One of the voices you added from the computer is corrupt. Plug the tomtom back in to the computer and remove the customer voices one by one till you find the one that is corrupt. If you can't do this using the tomtom app, reply and I will find out where the files are and tell you which ones to delete from the momory.
i do not know if you have changed the voice on the preferences, if not on main menu 1 page tap change preferences,go to page 4 tap change voice, the computer voices will be 1st ,then tap the one you want then select , hope that helps
i had the problem that when selecting the voice, the device would freeze up then restart sending me to the beginning of the preferences. what i did to fix this is connect the device to my laptop and start tomtom home. on the third page select operate my device. this let me finish selecting the preference options through the computer. after that my gps came up.
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.
