    GO: No spoken directions

    Yes. Actually, I solved the problem by restarting the phone. Thank you for the responses.

    GO: No spoken directions

    I made sure of that (as I said in my OP). No joy. :(

    GO: No spoken directions

    I just installed the GO app on my Android phone. I hear no spoken directions even though spoken directions are turned "on" and the GO volume slider is all the way up. The phone volume is turned all the way up as well. Any thoughts?

    Map key?

    Clearly the map uses some system of colors/line widths to distinguish main roads from secondary roads, etc., but I don't see where it's documented in the manual. My old XL used to distinguish toll roads -- what's more, I was able to customize the color for that, and every other type of road! I...

    Map key?

    Is there a key to TomTom maps that lists what symbols/colors are used to identify stuff like toll roads, major roads, secondary streets, etc? The map on my new GO 620 has symbols I'm not familiar with: for example, a red crisscross pattern on a stretch of road, a solid black line or rectangle...

    Ah, okay, that makes sense. So there would be some cost involved in developing new voices.... Oh, well. Maybe the next-generation devices could have a single computerized voice that is customizable -- i.e., sliders to regulate voice qualities such as pitch, timbre, resonance, etc., to taste. I...

    Vote for your most wanted new features here

    I find it astounding that my new GO 620 offers only one (1) computerized voice! With all due respect to "Samantha", it would be nice if there were at least one male computerized voice on offer. And would it be asking too much to have more than one of each? This is a big step backwards from the...

    GO 620 Wi-Fi

    Thanks, I'll do that. I'll grant that the cloud feature is pretty nifty. I used the MyDrive website to create a route, clicked the button to save it to my 620 -- and boom, it was there. I just spoke to TT Support about computerized voices. Their answer was a paraphrase of Henry Ford: you can...

    GO 620 Wi-Fi

    Thank you, dhn, for the guide, and the menu tips. No access to the file system means there is no way to back it up. And maybe no need. I regularly backed up my XL but, in eight years, never once had to restore a backup. It would be nice if there were some sort of cloud backup available -- or do...

    GO 620 Wi-Fi

    After eight (8) years, my XL 340S finally, suddenly, gave up the ghost. I loved my TomTom, so I immediately bought a GO 620, which I just received. Obviously a lot of progress is achieved in 8 years, and the 620 certainly reflects that. But a few questions arose immediately (and I will probably...

    Sorry, the URL changed. You can see some screen shots here. (Also, I updated the links in the OP.)

    Distance to next 'exit only' lane

    Yes, muting the speaker seems like the easiest solution to me. Although possibly annoying on the open road, the spoken directions to keep left (or right) to avoid an exit are very useful for city driving. I'd think twice about doing surgery on the spoken instructions if you do a lot of...

    How to fix poor TTS pronunciation - Discussion

    Funny, I could've sworn it was a tomtom. :D I hear it once in a blue moon. Most of the time, not.

    Use Your TomTom to "Route" for Your Team!

    Use Your TomTom to "Route" for Your Team!

    The idea is simple: Modify any TomTom custom color scheme so that the route and turn arrows are displayed with your favorite team's colors. Sample color schemes for all Major League Baseball (MLB) and National Football League (NFL) teams are attached. The map colors are my day scheme based...

    Problem with Color Scheme Editor

    This is weird. When I load a file into the editor, it displays colors from a previous version of the file, at least for some map elements (e.g., Route indication arrow color). What's worse, when I save the file, it overwrites my earlier changes and my updates are lost. Anyone else experience this?

    Original Color Scheme Question

    Thanks! Thanks for doing this. Antarctica is one of my favorite night colors. I'll look forward to trying it.

    "Greens" color scheme

    Have been working on a green-themed scheme (say that three times fast) which I call ... drumroll ... "Greens". I've test-driven this now and it looks OK. The attached ZIP includes three files: greens-d.clr ... day greens-e.clr ... either greens-n.clr ... night Any of these will work as a...
