    @dennismoore,

    I have no other problems with other app's.

    The phone gives me all the messages.
    The watch show every message I get or reminders.

    It is only with the Tomtom app the voice has a problem.
    I have tried every setting and none will work.

    Using a second test phone is no big problem for me.

    I only use the app for short trips.

    As for long trips I have a standalone GPS unit that has never failed me with a 7in. screen.
    Full animated split screen to show what exit to take. Plus Lifetime traffic and speed cams.
    All for one price and works out of the box first time.

    GPS app's great but to many problems, to many updates.
    Everything is an extra.

    And they always have some hiccup that causes problems.
    We will have to see when 5G comes into being how well these apps work.
    But that means new phones to have 5G.

    That means more costs for a new phone and gps app's having more problems

    my GPS unit is 3 years old and is still going strong.

    Your problem must be on the device.
    I use a Xiaomi Mi 7 paired via Bluetooth to Mi Band 3.
    Everything works as it should, including the voice output of TomTom NDS.
    I chose the alarm channel for the sound.

    This problem has also been reported with TomTomGo on the TomTom forum.

    So it is not a device problem.

    I have tested it on 2 other phone with Bluetooth and a smartwatch and it does the same thing.

    It is two easy to always say it is the phone or table that is the problem.

    TomTom is very good at saying that.

    More than likely there is a bug in both apps from TomTom that cause this problem.

    But like I said no big deal I just use another phone without Bluetooth running with the app and all works with no problems at all.

    PS:
    This is also 2 Bluetooth pairings going on here.

    First Phone and watch
    Then Phone to hands free.

    Incoming calls and messages work with no problems.
    Can talk to a person with hands free.

    Only no voice with TomTomNDS or TomTomGo both have the same problems.

    I quote what TOMTOM has said about this problem:

    "TomTom International BV30 July 2019
    Hi Alan The app streams audio instructions via BlueTooth using the A2DP audio profile. There is also HSP (Handset) and HFP (Handsfree) which the app does not use. It may be that this is using the same channel as the radio. We have fed back your comments to our development team, thank you for your review - TomTom Team"

    Audio turns off even with Bluetooth turned off.

    @francoal,

    It could be this.

    I have done this on a couple of times both with TOMTOMNDS and TOMTOMGO.

    They have the speaker on and off in the wrong place.

    I have reported this to TomTom that they need to move it into the menu.

    The last version to give you info in map updates was v1.0.6.

    If user's would just take the time to read older posts you can answer the question yourself.

    After v1.0.6 no update info is given.

    You have to delete the old maps and then download the new ones.

    I clearly misunderstood or incorrectly recalled previous threads/posts, very sorry.

    Are notifications for the availability of mapping updates going to be brought back? Very odd if they're not.

    One should expect so, but TomTom isn't very active when it comes to updating or improving its apps.

    Regular Go mobile app is almost 1'year old. No updates since. The fact that you can not use HFP is very well known by TomTom for years (!!!!), but no solving that problem

    Of course
    Just a few days ago the update for standalone devices came out. For mobile, it will be in a couple of weeks.
    Before asking a question, know it's already discussed here and at 99.9% is not unique. Use search.

    Many questions become very arduous, a lot of time chewed deja vu...Since we have lost all the year of work and effort, many people have no will to answer the same questions again. Me neither. Use a search, please.

    TomTom nds is better than TomTom go as you don't have to do much after installing it to get for example traffic info. The only thing I liked more on TomTom go was next turn display as it was smaller than the kind nds has got. Apart from that nds is way better.
