1) Hold your finger in the lower- right hand corner of the nuvi screen while turning on nuvi.....
2)Keep your finger pressed until the pop up window appears...
3) Touch yes to clear all data..
4) All original settings are restored....

Hope that helps..

Either it is programmed that way to stop telling you the name after a certain amount of time, which is unlikelly or there is a setting in the menu that you changed. Go int the menu and set everything to the default value, that should fix it. It is probablly called the set up or settings screen, where you can ask it to include or sxclude various types of information

My garmin nuvi 255w stopped giving vocal instructions. It works other than that. Thanks!


just looking at mine, you turn it on... after it has loaded maps etc you will see a screen with a wrench and a speaker in the lower right corner. touch the speaker icon.... make sure the volume is turned up in the next screen and that it is not muted.

Does the garmin nuvi 255W speak street names


I had the same problem with my nuvi 255w. Called tech support at Garmin and they told me one of the voices under Tools, Settings, Language, Voice has to end in a persons name. I had British English selected and it did not speak street names. When I selected Austrailian Englich - Karen, the street names all work fine.

My Garmin 255W doesn't speak the name of street, why?


You will need to do the following to get your unit to speak street names.
Tools/Settings/Language/Voice,select one that has TTS after its name.
I would suggest that you go on Google and download the 60 page complete Manual which also has Troubleshooting in it.
