    hi all,
    i recently made the move from Garmin Mobile (Blackberry) to Tom Tom (iPhone) and noticed a few differences. I prefer Garmin Mobile as it reads out names of the streets, and reads out your destination when arrived either on the left or right ? Basically i'm spoiled with more audible prompts.

    Can I assume that it is just work in progress for Tom Tom and that Tom Tom will too have features ?

    Overall, I'm pretty happy with how its running.

    I look forward to this board for further tips and tricks !

    Tomtom has told some mac sites that TTS (reading out street names) is coming in a future update.

    No Tomtom (phone or standalone PND) says "left" or "right", so it'll be a while if Tomtom adds that feature at all.
