Check to make sure the selected voice is one that says TTS by its name. Not all of the voices can do text-to-speech.

My nuvi wont stop asking me to push the dot


Hello,

Try performing a soft reset on the unit.
Resetting Your nüvi
If your unit stops responding, turn off the unit, and then turn it back on. If this does not help, perform a reset using the reset button on the bottom of the unit.
Caution: Do not reset your nüvi with a ballpoint pen or other sharp object, which can damage your unit.
1. Disconnect the nüvi from external power.
2. Press the Reset button on the bottom of the nüvi.
3. Connect the nüvi to a power source.

A hard reset can also be done but will erase all the user data.
This is done by with the unit off and pressing and holding the bottom right hand corner of the screen while turning the unit on.

Also try running the Garmin WebUpdater and reload the latest update again.

Garman 225w won't start, stops after "loading


The micro usb port is at the back. Connect Vehicle Power Cable to the nüvi and connect the other end to your computer, your nüvi does not operate as a GPS unit - it goes into some sort of charging mode. However, if you FIRST turn on the nüvi in the battery mode then go into the test mode (press the battery icon for about 8-9 seconds) from the main screen, THEN PLUG in the USB cable, and finally exit the test screen, your nüvi will restart (reboot) and it will operate just like it was plugged into the cradle connection in your vehicle.

This mode will charge the battery
AND operate as a GPS.

It works with my computer USB cable, my cell phone charger and my car charger for my cell phone.

Don't forget to turn off the nüvi before unplugging.

I have a nuvi 760 is there any free updates


The Nuvi 760 is not designed for commercial vehicles. Garmin does sell units that are, like the Nuvi 465T. According to their website, www.garmin.com, the Nuvi 465T offers the following:

Ease your way down the highway with the nüvi 465T – our first nüvi designed specifically for the over-the-road trucking industry. Featuring a preloaded NTTS Breakdown Directory, specialized routing options throughout the lower 48 states and truck friendly points of interest, this full-featured navigator was made for life on the road. The nüvi 465T also lets you create custom vehicle profiles tailored to what you’re driving and what you’re hauling. It’s convenience created with over-the-road drivers in mind.
Navigate With Confidence
The nüvi 465T is the first navigation device to provide locations in the National Truck and Trailer Services (NTTS) Breakdown Directory to its trucking-relevant points of interest. The NTTS Breakdown Directory is the most comprehensive guide to semi-truck repair facilities nationwide – including those offering 24-hour road service.

More info is available from Garmin.

I keep getting low battery message while my 750 is plugged in?


I'm still not 100% clear about why this is an issue (I'm having the same problem with my nüvi 760), but . . .

If you connect the Garmin to a power source via the USB port and leave it for a good long time (overnight) it should recharge even though the unit had been refusing to accept a charge through the normal power cord.
