Text to speech voice breaks up when giving directions

I just got a Garmin nuvi 750. Often when it speaks directions, the voice breaks up, causing me to miss information. Why does this happen? Should I re-install the voice software?

    I have the same problem on my 750. My sons 760 started to do the same thing.

    Same voice breaking up on my Garmin 760. This just started after about 16-months ownership and light use since I use it only when I'm out of town on vacation - maybe plugged in about 4-6 weeks during that period. I've emailed Garmin Support and will get back if they offer a solution.

Reloading the software will NOT help. Garmin have a patch to fix this (it's a common problem). The same thing happened to mine and I took it to Garmin for repair. They fixed the unit for me while I waited! The technician said that it needs to be repaired by them.

No french laguage


On the Nuvi 7xx series as well as many other nuvi models, voice updates are free and downloadable from garmin.com. Garmin only charges for map upgrades. Maps do not contain voices. I have backups of french text to speech (TTS) voices. I would be happy to give you links to download them to you.

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.

How to change the voice on garmin 750? /


Press the wrench/tools button at the main menu. Select the icon with the lips (language). You should see (2) buttons labeled American English. The first one makes all of the text on the Nuvi in the English alphabet. The second button is for the voice. If it just says "American English", then it will only say "Left" or "Right". Press this button and select a TTS voice (Text to Speech), like Jill, Jack, Daniel.....etc.

Garmin Nuvi 260 - how to activate text to speech


Question: How do I change the Voice Language setting on my nuvi 2xx?
--> Answer: All of the Garmin® automotive GPS units that speak street names are also loaded with basic voice prompts (example: Turn Right in 500 feet) as well as Text-to-Speech (TTS) voices that speak street names. If one of the basic types of voice prompts has been selected, the voice prompts will not speak street names. In order to change this setting on the nüvi® 2xx series, follow these steps:
  1. In the Main Menu, touch Tools (Wrench icon).
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Press the Down arrow in the bottom right corner.
  4. Select Language.
  5. The first line on this screen is the Voice language. Touch the Current Voice option for the GPS device listed to change the Voice.
  6. Select a Voice that is labeled TTS. These will speak street names. Options without the TTS label will say the distance until the next turn, but will not include the street name.
  7. Select OK. The Voice has now been changed.
The device should now speak street names. This is tghe solution that I found on the Garmin site. It worked for my device. Hope this is helpful. solution = solution1description.innerHTML; Last modified on: 04/14/2008
