I have a Garmin 200 and it no longer talks to me?


From the main menu tap tools, settings, language, and then select a language for the voice. If theres none to select from then you need to download garmin webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

Connect your unit to your PC, install and run garmin webupdater and follow the onscreen prompts, on the additional updates page scroll down and find the voices with "TTS" as well as the regular ones and install them to your unit. Then go back into your units language settings and select a voice.

Connect your satnav to your computer and run Webinstaller. It will update your software and when it's finished it will give you the option of downloading extras. These include voices. Select the ones you want and they will be downloaded to your satnav. You'll need to select the voice you want again as described above.

Spoken directions do not give actual street names


Hello, Mike, congratulations on your purchase of the gps. Here's what you should do:

Tap MENU - SETTINGS - REGIONAL.

Choose Voice Profile. This button shows the current language of the voice guidance. By tapping the button, you can select a new one from the list of available languages and speakers. For the speaker to announce actual street names you must select a language that indicates TTS (Text-To-Speech).

To hear a sample voice just tap on any of languages. Tap OK when you have selected the new spoken language.

No voice


Apparantly a common problem.

My 760 randomly defaults to a non TTS (text to speech) setting. When it does, it won't speak the directions.

Solution from the Garmin Site:

Answer:
This could occur if the voice language has been de-selected. If you can hear the device produce a beeping noise then the voice language needs to be changed or selected. If you do not hear any noise then the FM Transmitter might be selected or the sound has been Muted.
To check the voice language:
  1. Touch Tools
  2. Touch Settings
  3. Touch Language
  4. Touch the Voice option
  5. Touch on a selection that has TTS* in the description (example: American English - Jill - TTS)
  6. Touch OK
  7. Touch Back
The device should speak when in a route.
*Note - If the device is a 755, 765, 775, 785 then the selection will contain "Speaks Street Names" in the description.
