Question about Tomtom GO 700 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Text-to-speech not functioning (voice guidance stopped working)

I bought a new Tomtom GO 720 and it was working well for a week. When I was using it in LA, the signal was lost several times, and there was only a interrupted voice guidance coming. I thought it was due to insufficient charging. But the device was on charging with car charger that time. Whenever the device starts giving voice guidance, it got turned off. Finally after few hours, the device started showing proper navigation, but the voice guidance (text-to-speech) is completely not functioning now (absolutely no audio). Is there anyway I can fix the problem? or should I return the device. If possible enlighten me what would have happened to the device.

How do I turn the speaker on?


You can turn on (or off) the voice guidance ... to announce the driving instructions.

Make sure you select (in your Speaker Preferences) ... the internal speaker ... your Sound is turned ON, your Volume Slider turn up (high), and select (a Voice Preference) as a computer voice... and select the ENABLE Voice option.
In Speech Preference, select the situations which you want instructions/directions/warnings to be read out loud.

I HAVE A TOMTOM330S , I ONLY FIND TWO VOICES THAT WILL WORK WITH STREET NAMES. IS THERE ANYWAY TO HAVE MORE CHOICES THAT I CAN USE WITH STREET NAMES


To get tts (text to speech) you have to use a computer generated voice. TomTom does not offer many tts voices, but you can download tts voices thru TomTom Home.

TomTom® XL 330S GPS Receiver street names announced?


your xl will not say street names if its using a human voice, because it can not convert text to speech

you have to use the computer generated voice option to utilize the text to speech feature.

tap the map screen, the go in the preference option, then locate the change voice option.

on my xl its on the 4th page but your 330 may differ slighly.

it probably wont tell you which are computer or human generated, so youll have to experiment.

you can read about your voice options HERE

you can get a copy of your manual HERE if you need one.

Certain functions not working? tomtom go 720


This happens with my cell phone all the time too, just have to go to manage phones and delete my phone then re-configure it and that seems to fix it for a while at least. Also night & day always has to be done manually, it won't change automatically that i'm aware of. I'm pretty sure i had to download some of the free voices from the TomTom Home or website initially, in any case i prefer to use my TomTom 720 without voice as becomes annoying listening all day nag nag nag blah blah blah.

TomTom XL Text-to-Speech not working


I had the same problem, before realising that text-to-speech on the TomTom XL on'y works if you've selected a *computer-generated" voice - and not all of them are. "Samantha/English-US" is computer-generated, for example, but "Tim/English-UK" is not (it's a recorded voice). When choosing from options in the "Change voice" menu option, check the top-right hand corner to tell whether a voice is computer-generated or not. Hope this helps.

Tomtom stuttering


TomTom Home now has a fix which corrects the stuttering problems with the computer voice needed for the 'text to speech' function on the GO720. Simply plug your device into your computer and have it connect with your computer. You should automatically see a large fix available which will correct the problem. Download it as I did, and the problem is corrected.

I have a tomtom xl 330.s and I was told that text to speech would announce the upcoming street name, but the only response that I get is a command to turn left or right.


In order for the text to speech to work you need to make sure that you have a computer voice enabled. Then after you select a computer voice make sure you check the option to say aloud street names.

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.
