Uploading OV2 files to tomtom not working

I followed the directions of connecting tomtom to computer. It does not show up as a removable storage device. A computer icon does show up on the tomtom map page. What else could I try? This is for tomtom VIA 1535

Microphone icon on main screen

I used to have a microphone symbol on the screen with the map. I used to be able to tap on it and it would say "say a command". This was good for finding gas stations or restaurants. I installed an updated map and now it is gone. Tomtom Via

TomTom 1435TM doesn't speak street names

I've been using Garmin GPSs for the past ten years and decided to get a TomTom 1435TM because Garmin maps are notoriously inaccurate in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area.

Compared to the Garmin, the 1435TM takes more key presses to enter a destination. But I'm frustrated in that during navigation this new TomTom doesn't speak street names. Is there a setting I'm missing?

New TT GO Series for 2014

Regarding the 2014 TT GO units, will it be required to have a smartphone to receive traffic info?

I'm confused about this. I don't have/want a smartphone.
Just want to receive traffic info.

For now, I may be interested in the TT GO 500 with 5" screen.

Can anyone clarify this?

TomTom 1650 GPS fix

Why does TomTom continually prompt me to update the GPS fix software? I'm assuming there is only one version since TOmTom does not indicate a version.

I must have updated this software six times now. But I still get prompted to update it again.

TomTom Android App Version 1.3 Released

It appears that TomTom has released version 1.3 of their Android app in Europe. Presumably it will be released soon in North America. (They have previously done staggered releases of their PND apps to reduce peak demand on their servers, so that may be happening here.)
