None of these units do this it does not have text to voice. It just tells when a turn is comming up but does not give the name.

Can i update my garmin 205w to speak street name?


Yes, but it is not an upgrade, you need to invoke the voice that you desire, located in the menus of your unit.

Garmin nuvi 205w - When I try to enter - Glasgow - Argyle street -the street autocompletes to "Argyle PLACE" and I cannot find out to get round this problem. Is there a solution ?



Are you sure you have glasgow as town ?
There is an argyll place (different spelling)

Normally it shows similar names in a city and you chose the correct one.
Is the argyle place it shows actually argyle street ?
On my garmin it shows argyle (gardens, Place, road, square .... ) as one option and the 2nd option argyll place.
I have the 2010 city navigator maps.

Does Garmin 205W speak street names


Hello,

yes your unit should have no trouble speaking street names, aslong as your Voice Language has a name behind it like " American English - Jill ".

Hope this helps!

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.

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.

What does the letter T stand for in the Nuvi Garmin GPS? Also im looking for a new one that has street names, lane guidance, and traffic alerts which is the best one?


T means "Traffic". A nuvi 765T handles all the things you need. https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?cID=137&pID=14926#specsTab

Garmin GPS Model 205 - does it give street name?


I don't believe this unit offers a street name function. The hard drive is not powerful enough.

My nuvi 205w doesn't speak street names.. Can't find setting to activate. Garmin website no help.


The Nuvi 205W does not have TTS (Text to Speech) capability. You would have to purchase a higher-up model to have this feature. Please see link: https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=13432#specsTab Look under FEATURES SECTION: - Jim SHARCNET-USA http://www.sharcnet-usa.com

How do you get GArmin nuvi 265WT to speak street names?


I just purchased similar model (Nuvi 265W) and experiment for sometime. The trick is on the language option with or without TTS.

Select Setting from menu, go to language and pick the Voice option. Select any one of the language with TTS (Text to Speech) and save. Those that without (TTS) will not talk "street name", this is why some cheaper model can't speak street name, only turn-by-turn instruction, like nuvi model 205.

Enjoy
