How do i get my Garmin 200w to speak the street names?


Unfortunately, the Nuvi 200W does not have Text-to-Speech, which is the feature that allows the units to speak out street names. It is unable to do so. I'm sorry.

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.

My garmin 750 doesn't identify the streets that i should be turning at.Just tells me distance when to turn.


Do you mean it is not speaking the street names? Have you selected a voice that uses the Text-to-speach (TTS) feature? From the main screen press, "Tools", then "Settings", then "Language." Next to the voices that will speak street names, you will see the (TTS) designation. Press one of these and the unit should tell you the street names.

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.

Garmin nuvi 750 won't say street names after upgrade to 2009 maps


User's manual available at www.garmin.com. Select "support", then "Manuals". Enter "mobile electronics"+"automotive"+"model #". Manual says that selecting a language with a person's name will speak street names.

Was speaking names now only says turn next left or rt.


Hi,

Touch tools > settings > language > voice.

Voice- changes the language for voice promts.

Languages noted with a persons name are (tts)
text to speak voices. ( ie: American English Jill ) will speak

which have an extensive vocabulary and pronounce
the street names as you approach turns.

Regards
Richard.

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

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.
