I can see it downloading onto my tom tom but when I check it again on a short drive it still doesn`t say the street names. I still have the lady just saying turn right then left. It won`t say the street names.

All of a sudden my Garmin Nuvi 850 won't say street names, just turn left or right


It may have switched voices. Some of the voices are basic and do not say the street names.
  • Press TOOLS (The spanner icon in the bottom right corner of the screen which shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Pres SETTINGS
  • Press LANGUAGE
  • Press VOICE and select an English speaking voice that ends with the letters TTS (TTS stands for text to speech)
If you don't have one on your satnav you can download them. Download and install, to your computer, the latest version of WEBUPDATER from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
Connect your satnav to your computer and run the WEBUPDATER program
It will search for updates and you should install any it finds. Afterwards it will find optional updates including voices. Tick the ones you want and download them to your satnav. When you have disconnected your satnav from your computer you'll need to select a voice as described in the first paragraph above

Xxl 530s spoken street names


Not all sound files speak out the street names. So, in a way, it is your set up that needs to be changed. It is is not a wrong information. If you want, street names spoken, you need to select a voice that ends with computer. For example, the voice file selection: Simon, English UK, Computer will speak street names. But the voice file, Bonnie, English US will not speak Street names. Dave, English US, computer will give you street names but Lori or Mandy, English US will not. Procedure to get the street names spoken: Tap on main screen. Tap on change preferences. Tap on arrow. Tap on change voices. Tap (select) a voice that ends with computer. Tap select. Tap done till you reach the main screen.

No street names spoken


Have you selected an electronic voice? If you have a "standard" voice or have used a "celebrity" download voice, it won't give computed responses for street names.
Go to voices, change voice and try a digital/electronic voice. If not installed, use TomTom home to download an electronic voice.
Hope this helps

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.

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 !!

My new tomtom XL It should have spoken street names, but I can not get it?


Apparently only Samantha can speak street names. Mine didn't come with it, but when I updated my unit by connecting it to the computer at the tomtom site, Samantha was automatically downloaded. I chose her voice and it works.

WON'T SPEAK STREET NAMES


Greetings Seecar,
I had the same problem with the TomTom One. What you need to do is this:
When you select a voice preference you have to use a "computer" voice as it seems the "human" voice cannot pronounce the street names. I don't know if your model has the same choices but mine is set to "Samantha, English US"
Hope this helps
