Hi, it wont announce street names if you have the human voice selected. you must use the computer generated voice du,b as it sounds, thats the way it is.

go tp the change voice option and select a computer generated voice and try again..it should prompt you that you have selected one or the other.

if this fails, let me know and i can give you something else to try

HOW DO I GET MY TOM TOMXL TO SPEAK STREET NAMES ? FOR EXAMPLE, IT WILL SPEAK TURN LEFT 100 YARDS, BUT DOES NOT SPEAK STREET NAME


you need to select a computer voice. no gps can say street names while using a human voice.

tap the map screen, then preferences, then scroll to the 4th page where it says change voice and select a computer voice.

if you need more help, just reply to this post

I have a Tom Tom 340S XL and I cannot get it to speak the street names as advertised. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks,


You solved the problem for me. I switched to a "computer voice" and the Tom Tom began calling out the street names. As many times as I read the 340S manual I never saw the requirement to use only a computer voice to speak the street names. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

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.

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.

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 !!

I just bought a tom tom xl we thought it had the capability to sound out the street names as we approached them?


You need touse the computer voice and not the regular voices.

The computer voice is the only one who will announce the 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.
