You can set it to warn you of known locations of both. That said, you cannot assume it will know the location of one installed yesterday and warn you. It is not a detector: it warns you of the ones in it's data bank.

It offers voice instructions of your route: I don't know why it would need to recognize your voice. You cannot give it verbal instructions, if that is what you mean. It displays, but does not say, the street names.

Not voice recognition but it does speak street name.

Question

Are Interstate Exit Numbers included in the driving directions?

The last Tomtom GPS I bought did not give the Interstate exit numbers in the manuver list or driving directions. I returned it to the seller.

It shows a picture of the sign you should see at your exit, the standard green and white Interstate sign. While it doesn't post the exit number, the bright orange arrows on the split screen would make it pretty hard to miss your exit: as you approach the exit, it automatically goes to split-screen. The left screen is the standard display you'd been following, but the right half is a magnification of the exit as you approach with large orange arrows showing you the lane(s) you should get into and follow to successfully exit. I don't know how anybody could screw that up except by inattention to both the voice and displayed instructions.

No replacement battery- this is a rechargable battery internal that is charged by a USB port either in or out of your vehicle. My older unit of 8yrs never replaced internal battery either.
