My garmin 205w doesn't tell me verbally names of streets and exits. My brother has the same exact model and his does this function.


Some of the voices on Garmin satnavs speak streetnames and others don't. Press Tools, then press settings, then press Language. You'll see the Voice name. Press it and select a different one. (American English Jack or Samantha TTS will speak the streetnames). Press OK and it should then be ok.

Why doesn't it say the NAME OF THE STREET that you are to turn on? It will tell you how far ahead the turn is and then tell you to turn R or L but it doesn't give the name. Also, there have been several...


I have a tomtom 920, it will say the street name to turn on if set to do so & only then if using computer voices, not human voices. Tuning the wrong direction could be its wrong or its trying to take the fast route via a highway, longer route but get there faster

Navi g tells you to turn when you're right on the corner-too late


Hi

In the actual menu of your Nuvi there are different settings for getting to your destination via either
a) fastest route
b) shortest distance

Unfortunately quite often when the Nuvi is set to fastest route it will do all it can to get you onto the motorway or a main road as this is the way the software is set up. When in fastest route mode it cannot figure out that to go on the motorway in this instance is not the most convenient route for you to take at all.

If you change to shortest distance mode (its under the navigation menu I think) you will find it will take you by the route to your Nannas you would normally expect to go.

Sometimes this function is hard to work out as to which is the appropriate setting for a particular journey - you will need to experiment a bit with it but the general rule is if it is in fastest route mode it will look for motorways and main roads and ignore the convenient little back roads that we all know in our own locality.

You may find as general rule that if you plan a journey to somewhere thats within your local area its better to select shortest distance mode.

Fastest route may work better for longer journeys.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Many Thanks.

Stop a nav route


Once you pick your new destination, the unit will ask if you want to delete the previous destination. If you just want to delete the route, hit the menu button, go to destination, and it's the bottom right selection.

Msn direct status


try getting the new 2.0 firmware on and put it on a SD card, install the new firmware and then install AVIC feeder on ur computer and change the settings to your likeness and save it on ur SD card. your AVIC will ask you to update aka yes or no and click yes, after the first time it will restart and load again with the same ?, click no and go to MSN direct status. keep in mind that the upgrade must take place in the cradle in a msn direct zone.

Can not get route information desoite having had it programmed into garmin


Try doing a hard reset. Hold down the back button (leftside), the thumbwheel, and then the power button. This will reset all setting back to factory default. You will lose any custom setting, recent find and waypoints.
