My garmin nuvi used to verbally give the street name at turns. Now, it only says turn right or turn left. The street name display does remain at the top of the screen?

Hi,
Go to your tools, settings, languages, voices,
Choose a name with a person's name at the side of it
IE: American English Jill
These speak the street name's, as you approach the turns

Regards
Richard.

If the Garmin Nuvi Gps has suddenly quit speaking street names and now only says "Turn Left" or Turn Right", please follow the following procedure to restore your Nuvi so that it will begin speaking street names again:

Press the wrench/tools button at the main menu. Select the icon with the lips (language/locale).

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 "Turn Left" or "Turn Right". Press this button and select a TTS voice (Text to Speech), like Jill, Jack, Daniel.....etc. That will give you back your street names.

How do make the gps announce the street name to


Neither the Nuvi 250W nor the Nuvi 205W have Text to Speech (which is the feature that allows the unit to speak the street names), so you cannot make yours speak street names. I'm sorry.

Garmin GPS Model 205 - does it give street name?


I don't believe this unit offers a street name function. The hard drive is not powerful enough.

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.

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.
