How do i get my tomtom to give street names in voice to text?


Not all sound files speak out the street names. If you would like to have the 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.

My Tom Tom One unit works OK but I cannot get any sound. There is a red cross on the Turn Off Sound but I cannot change it. When I try it flags 'You did not select a usable voice.'


You have not set a (male or female) voice to be used by your Tomtom One device:
use 'Change preferences' -> use Right arrow to get second creen for your preference 2 of 5 -> 'Change voie' -> scroll to 'select a voice' -> Click 'Test' to hear selected voice sample dialog -> Finally, click 'Select' when you are happy with the selected voice.
If you need additional voices, use TomTom Home to download them.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

My gps does not read streets 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

No sound in tomtom


The speaker has gone open circuit ( faulty speaker is common on this model ) or the headphone jack in the bottom is faulty ( also common on this model ) . The headphone socket has a switch inside it that switches the internal speaker OFF when an external speaker is plugged in . If this switch stays open you get NO VOICE .
You can check easily to see which fault you have.
  1. Take the SD card out
  2. switch on the tomtom
  3. do you hear the drums sound ?
  4. if you do ...... the speaker is OK
  5. Insert the SD card and wait till it loads up
  6. tap screen then select preferences
  7. move through and select " change voice "
  8. Check to see if you have a voice selected
  9. Return to main nav screen
  10. Tap screen just above lower left ( in the rectangle )
  11. The volume control should be UP
  12. if you have no sound when tapped here , the likely cause is open switch on the socket .
  13. Open up the tomtom , and clean switch carefully
  14. make sure when a PLUG is inserted the switch opens and when the plug is REMOVED the contacts close. properly
  15. Good luck , you have probably fixed it by now.
Please rate this if its been found to be useful to you.

There are no speaking directions on my TomTom GO720 e.g. for 'turn left' or 'take the next exit' or 'continue for 3 miles'. It only beeps for speed cameras etc. We have ticked all the boxes on the sound...


Hi there

As the TomTom is making beeping sounds, its a good indication that its not a hardware fault, it sounds to me its a software issue.

What you could do is try to reinstall the voices on your device. To do this, follow these steps:-

I presume you have TomTom Home installed already, if not you can download it from
http://www.tomtom.com/home

STEP 1 Make a Backup
  • Connect your TomTom to the computer and switch it on
  • Open TomTom Home
  • Click on 'backup and restore' and make a backup if you haven't done so already
Once the backup has been made, please do the following:-

STEP 2 Remove the existing voice files
  • Open My Computer, you will see the TomTom as two removable drives, one will be the internal memory and one will be for the SD card slot on the device.
  • Click into the Internal memory drive, you should see a whole load of files and folders.
  • You should see a folder called LoquendoTTS or Loquendo, click into this folder and delete the contents (all the files and folders inside the loquendo folder)
  • Go back to the root directory of the TomTom and delete the folder 'Voices'

STEP 3 Download and Reinstall the voices via TomTom Home
  • Go back to TomTom Home
  • Click on Add Maps, traffic and Voices
  • Select Voices. Loacate the voice of Jane and Tim and add them to your device
  • Go back to the main menu of TomTom Home, click on Add Maps, traffic and Voices -> Computer Voices and install the voice of Kate or Simon (UK English computer voices)
  • Close TomTom Home and also Close it from the system tray. (in the bottom right hand corner of your screen down by the computer clock, you should see a red icon for TomTom Home, Right click on it and choose 'exit')
STEP 4 Install the Clear Flash Tool from TomTom
  • Once Home has closed completely, please download and install the clear flash tool from:- http://www.tomtom.com/updates/clear_flash/clear_flash.exe (Home must be completely closed, otherwise it may not install correctly)
  • Accept the license agreement and keep pressing the Next arrow until the clear flash tool has installed.
  • Your device will start flashing to say there is some activity on your device
  • When your device has finished flashing on the screen (might take a minute), use the 'safely remove hardware' feature of your PC to disconnect the TomTom
  • Switch the TomTom off then take it out of the dock.
STEP 5 Test the voices

  • Switch the TomTom back on, but not connected to the dock
  • Let it load up to the main navigation screen
  • Tap onto the menu and tap onto 'Change Preferences -> Voice Preferences'.
  • Select a non-computer voice i.e. Jane or Tim and press test. You should now hear the voice instruction
  • Try selecting the voice of Kate or Simon i.e. the computer voices, and press test, you should now hear the computer voice.
This should get the voices working again, if not it might be worth giving TomTom Support a call and they can talk you through it.

Hope this works for you

regards
