I have a NUVI 750 and the voice directions are breaking up. I know that the weather effects this, but this is getting worse. What can I do?


Hello, this possibly isn't a weather issue. All the voice combinations are stored locally on the local memory so their is no voice transmitted to GPS as in case of cell phone.

The issue is 'Text-to-speech' technology. Through in-built modules, it trys mimicing reading the english text as human's do and the sound is sometimes not natural. Its recognized as 'stuttering'

To isolate the issue, you can just select other language in the settings that is not TTS. It won't read the street names for you but you should receive a clean voice such as 'Take a left turn in 300 feet'

If you haven't registered your unit with Garmin, I suggest do it now at garmin.com. Then try for getting a latest software fix at the following location

Hope this helps.

My garmin nuvi is only giving me distance and turning directions. Has suddenly quit giving me upcoming street names.


Try restoring settings by going to tools, settings and restoring Map, Display and Navigation choices. If does not work after these procedures try a full reset by switching off by holding button over 8 secs.

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.

Doesn't name streets to turn on before the turn.


Go to https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/ and look up your specific GPS system, some do not name the street by name, some (like the nuvi 780) do.

Hi,

The only vioces to pronounce street names are the vioces
noted with a persons name at the side of it.
These are the TTS text to speach, voices.
They will pronounce the street names for you then.

Garmiin nuvi gps,


The device uses SD cards actually. They will not however work with TOPO maps or Bluechart. They are primarily for loading media or city street maps for other country's.
