Hi, I find it really hard when researching the Tomtom models, to find out which ones have voice recognition (where you dictate the address and it recognises what you said). The specifications and details pages on the Tomtom website don't list this feature.

I am interested in buying the VIA 52 for my daughter. Does it have voice recognition?

If not, what models do?

thanks

    All newer models have VC (voice control) to my understanding, including the VIA 52.

    Thanks, because the shop assistant I asked said he is pretty sure it doesn't (purely from looking at the specs and guessing), and he said it is probably only in the GO models.

    I sensed that he was faking it.

    Does anyone reading this actually have a VIA 52 and can confirm?

    But to use voice controlled commands you must use a computer voice, for English(UK) that is "Serena" or "Malcolm"

    I just found this thread: https://en.discussions.tomtom.com/go-5xxx-6xxx-series-go-4xx-6xx-series-go-via-and-start-4x-6x-series-mydrive-connect-176/voice-control-on-the-via-52-1026151

    ...and it is obvious that the thread starter is using voice control on his VIA 52.

    So, I think I have my answer. Thanks again.

    P.S. I am in Australia

    In that case for English(AU) you only have "Karen" but check with Customer Services if there are any others ;)
