It doesn't read off street names as you pass them but it will give you voice instructions about upcoming turns etc. Make sure the text language and the voice profile you have selected match, otherwise it will be silent. ie. if you have us english text selected and german voice you will get silence

Nextar x3 08 GPS -Can I change the female voice to a male voice?


You cannot modify the voice like you can for TomTom. You are pretty much stuck with the female voice if you want voice prompts.
