Mine does too sometimes, rather randomly. But personally I (I do not know about you) find that insignificant in comparison to the advantages. Some of the misprounounciations are so unexpected as to be funny. By looking at the display one can generally know what is meant.
You can also change the default computer voice or buy some celebrities' voices.

    There is another solution I discarded without much thought. But since what I suggested does not seem to solve your problem, I am laying it out on the table: Teach the device how to pronounce street names.

My Garmin Nuvi 255W does not pronounce the words "right" and "left" clearly. Right sounds like "roft" and left sounds like "laft". Very confusing because they both sound pretty much the same. Is there...


You can try changing the voice to a differant one. For an example a british voice or a female voice might be clearer for you.

I'm assuming that the voice is actually fine but just not that clear to you. If the voice file has a problem you can do a hard reset and it will reload the files and that may clear it up at the cost of having to setup everything again.

My garmin nuvi does not pronounce certain words very well like on right, and ramp. it's like it's not saying the whole word. thank you


This is called clipping... recalibrate then

Make sure the battery is fully charged. Select another voice and ensure that it has TTS (text to speech) listed otherwise it goes mute. Once you have the other voice working OK and the battery is fully recharged reselct the voice you had problems with.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

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.

Not speaking street 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

Cannot select computer voice on Tom Tom 930


I eventually found out that pressing the reset pin and re-starting allowed me to access the computer voices.

Custom voices


You cannot customize the voices on this, or any other Garmin product of which I am aware. The Tom Tom Go 720 will allow you to record your own (or someone else's) voice on the unit (50 different phrases). However, any unit with the Text-to-Speech feature (which is what gives you the spoken street names) utilizes computerized voices to put the words together, which is why some sound "garbled." No unit does this better at this time. Tom Tom's pronunciations are, in my opinion, worse if anything (Branch instead of Bridge when abbreviated "Br", Crossing Island Parkway instead of Cross Island Parkway, etc.).
