GPS no longer announces street names. — TomTom Community

GPS no longer announces street names.

I have a Via 1520. It always announced street names, e.g. turn left at Main Street. Now it just says Turn left. I updated it about a week or so ago, and it downloaded new voices, which it never did before. Now it has a new voice. Does the new voice have anything to do with no longer announcing street names? How do I get the old voice back or at least get it to announce street names? Thank you.

    Hi @Sharonglassman
    Welcome to the forums.

    If you go into Settings the Voices you will find it will be on a certain voice that does not speak out the Street Names.
    Just select one that does allow this then it will speak street names then.

    Hi @Sharonglassman

    The voice you need is a Computerised voice not a Recorded voice. The voices listed on the unit will indicate what type of voice they are.

    Welcome to the site....
    Check... Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting --> Voices....
    As in the above posts... Always use a Computer Voice....
    Then set the next 5 of the Setting switches to ON
    If required, set the 6th switch (Read aloud foreign street names) to ON....

    Also check....
    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu)
    Are any 'Sound Icons' slashed through (OFF) ???
    It’s really easy to turn off a Sound Icon when swiping through the Menus
