Question about Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx

American English voices "Jack" and "Jill" are missing from my Garmin 2597

Garmin 2597LMT. American language, Jack and Jill are NOT listed on my device. It's a female, Japanese voice. I do not speak Japanese. Bought this in Vancouver, BC. Shouldn't devices specific to North America include a voice in English? Please help

This is very easy to resolve. Connect the unit to your PC with a USB cable and go to the Garmin website and download Garmin Express or Garmin Web Updater. These programs will scan your unit and offer you additional files to download. If you still have trouble, email me at sharcnet-usa AT sharc DOT net and I can send you the files.

Go back into your tools and settings and re select the voice of american jack and see if it comes back on.
I lost the voice 2 days ago while on a trip from tenn. to florida and this fixed it. we never shut off the voice but somehow while using bluetooth or FM trans it shut off voice transmiting.

Check The system settings, I had to download the newest version of the audio software for the voice to work. The software vanished once and I had to re-download it using the web updater.

Hopefully it will stick around this time.

When I load the new software the voice works.

I have a nuvi 2597LMT. It does not speak street names


This model has the capability to speak street names. You probably have it set to American English, which only says Turn right or turn left. Go to menu where the voices are. If it says American English or British English, press that name and you will see other voices. Select a TTS (text to Speech voice) like Jack or Samantha or Jill and you will now what a voice that speaks street names. If you can't find any listings, you will need to connect the unit to a PC and download them from the Garmin website.

Nuvi 750 stopped saying street names


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. That will give you back your street names.

Text to speech does not work on my Garmin Nuvi 350T. How do I activate this?


Oddly enough I had the same problem with the 260W. What the skimpy documentation doesn't say is that the voice you select must have the letters TTS next to it. Otherwise you just get the voice and no street names.

Got a solution for you:

You need to set the language properly in order to get the speech for street name

Go to setup --> Locale - Voice Language

Select language with TTS (Text-To_Speech) next to it:

ie:
American English-Jack (TTS )
American English-Jill (TTS)
Australia English-Karen (TTS)

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
