Wow! I just went out and bought a PNY SDHC 4gb memory card. Loaded it into my NUVI 680 and hooked it to laptop with USB cable. Saw the 4mb G drive right away. Havent synced music to it yet but cant see any problem. Thank you.

I have found that waypoints, routes and directions work only when I load it on the unit itself as opposed to the SD card. The SD card works more like an expansion slot for pictures or maps.
When you open up Mapsource you'll see the map on the right and the pane on the left, above the pane there are 4 tabs (Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks). As you select a map or create a waypoint, route or track. It will put a number in parenthesis which will increase in numbers as you add an item corresponding to each category, for example if you create a waypoint. So once you have done that, click on the TRANSFER tab in the Menu selection bar and choose SEND TO DEVICE. A window will pop up that will say...Device: with a drop down menu if your Garmin unit has an SD card in it, if not it will just show the Garmin unit. Then right below that there will be a section that says WHAT TO SEND with 4 check boxes that will say Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks. Make sure that you have selected the Garmin unit, not the SD, and the waypoints, routes or tracks you want to send. I hope this solves your problem or at least points you in the right direction...

Re: Not sayinstreet names.
After you turn on your unit touch the wrench icon in the bottom right of the screen, this will take you to a menu which features "Settings" in the upper left of the screen. Touch "settings" and scroll down to "language" by using the up and down buttons in the lower right of the screen (down 1 should do it). Touch "Language" and in the voice category find and select "American English - Jill (TTS)". This is the voice that will give you Text To Speech (TTS) speaking the street names in English. If you prefer Spanish or French, find the appropriate catergories with "(TTS)" beside them - "Espanol Americas - Paulina (TTS)" and "Francais Canadien - Julie (TTS)" respectively. Any other selection will only give directional instructions such as "turn left in XXX".
After you have selected your voice press "OK" and back out to your main menu showing "Where to?" and View Map".
Now, when you navigate, you should hear an American female voice giving you directions by street name - assuming your volume is high enough to hear it.
RE: The computer icon displaying when you try to use your unit in the car with the 12 VDC cord.
You probably have a problem with the cord. The pin length in the USB style connector is critical and if it doesn't match up just right the GPS thinks it is hooked up to a computer. If you know someone who has a Garmin NUVI try using their cord and see if you have the same problem. Either way, call Garmin and see if they will send you a replacement cord or otherwise help fix the problem.

Guys and or ladies... I know that you have to create a folder named "GARMIN" in the sd card so the maps can be recognize. Maybe this solves your problem. Let me know if it works.
