This LG Sat Nav i bought last week came loaded with Destinator ND. I saw on the internet that this has a feature called Text To Speech, where it reads out the street name. I've read the instructions and gone through the menu on the device, but can't see how it activates. All i get at the moment is "turn right" or equivalent.

Sorry but you can't. The LG LN500 doesn't have text to speech. See LGs website here Click on "Specifications"

Strange- says it's a feature here
The LG website also says it can't show JPEG photos, but it does. Mine does anyway.

Shocked

Bit of a mix up isn't it...

I did notice the review said

Quote:
There is only one voice English voice option (US English) that can be used with text-to-speech, but it is quite loud at the highest volume level.


Have you got US English selected?

Also it's an Australian review site so features maybe different in the UK...
