No longer announces street names

Help! My Garmin nuvi 260W used to announce street names (often mispronounced) and it no longer does this.  Any idea how I can get this feature to work again??  Thank you very much.

How do make the gps announce the street name to


Neither the Nuvi 250W nor the Nuvi 205W have Text to Speech (which is the feature that allows the unit to speak the street names), so you cannot make yours speak street names. I'm sorry.

Street names no longer announced


The 200W isn't supposed to have text-to-speech (where it actually speaks the street names). If yours did initially it was probably loaded on the unit by mistake at the factory. That feature isn't part of the 200W or it's software.

I have a Garmin 260W. When I first got it it announced the street names , but now it does not say the street names. Just says turn in so may feet etc. Can this be fixed and how??


Not all of the voices can give street names - only the ones enabled for text-to-speech (TTS). Go into the settings and select a voice marked TTS.
