I've heard that you can add features to your TomTom GPS. I have an XL335 LM model. I want to add two features: turn by turn directions and annoucing the name of the road. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks!
Solved! Go to Solution.

Your TomTom already got those two features, no need to add.
To enable stree names, you need to pick a computer voice.

As mentioned, select a computer voice in voice preferences if you want actual street names to be read out. Is that what you mean by 'turn by turn' instructions?
All voices will say 'In 300 yards Turn left' but the computer voice will say 'In 300 yards Turn left on Pine Street'

Thanks! I selected the computer voice. What I mean by turn by turn directions is an actual list of the turns I will have to make. I had that on my last GPS, and it was awesome! I'm not sure if this GPS has that feature or if it doesnt, can I add it somehow?

Oh, now I understand.........
Your model comes with EasyMenu. Look at the information in this link: http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/topic.asp?TOPIC
Not sure but, with the enhanced menu, after the route is determined, select 'options' or 'view details' and one choice may be 'view as text'. That's the one you want. Full featured models have that selection choice.

I actually just figured it out! I didn't have to go that site you gave me. Once you mentioned to click on details once your in the map, I tried it and there it was...view as text!! Just what I needed! I can also view a demo of the route from there!! Thanks so much!! Very helpful! Happy Easter!
