SOURCE: voice not working properly on garmin nuvi 660 - very disdorted

i have been told that voice to street is not as clear as the voice just stating turns. If it really bothers you then try voice to turn. I cant remember the setting but it should work well for you.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 200 Voice no longer working

Does your Nuvi 200 have a headphone jack? If so, try that with a pair of headphones. If you hear sound, then your internal speaker went bad. It's a known problem with the Nuvi.

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.

SOURCE: lost voice on my garmin 750

Look under settings>language>voice. Select American English and it will work again. The same thing happened to me this week on my new Garmin 750 and I took a couple of days to figure it out. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: The voice on Garmin stopped working

Hi

Please do this and let me know results.

If your device is not providing navigational prompts the language settings on the device will need to be checked:

  1. Turn the device on
  2. Touch Tools
  3. Touch Settings
  4. Touch Language
  5. Touch the blue box under Voice

If this section has your desired voice please make sure this voice is selected which will resolve the issue.

If the above fails or the unit doesn’t list the voice/s that you require you will need to update the software and reload the voice/s back to the device via WebUpdater. To install WebUpdater please click the link below:

http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

Once installed and the software is updated please make sure that you check for additional updates which should provide you with a number of voices to reinstall to your device.

Once reinstalled your problem should be resolved.

Let me know

I have a Garmin Nuvi 265w and it stopped saying street names. How can i get it to say street names again?


From your main menu, tap tools>settings>language. On this page under voice, select a voice and make sure it has the TTS next to the voice for speech. If you do not have any, you need to download garmin webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

Download install and run garmin webupdater and follow the onscreen prompts. When you get to the additional updates page, scroll down to find the voice and update the ones you would like on your unit. Once the update is complete unplug your unit and allow it to restart. Then go back to tools>settings>language and select your voice.

My garmin wont talk


Select another voice - if nothing upload a new voice such as the free voice:

Select this voice and plan a route. If still nothing check the basics such as volume or volume mute.

1) The voice stopped working. Why? 2) I can't use the Garmin while it's charging in the car. Why ?


I have the same unit, it did the same to me, I went to garmin site, found the voices to download, enter download all voices, the system did it job, and I began using the voices again. Just remember, in order to hears streets & turns, you must use the TTS (*Test To Speech) voices.
Hope this will help.

Why stopped voicing street names?


As far as I am aware, Streetpilot C330 doesn't call street names. Check this specifications sheet on garmin's website:

Custom voices


You cannot customize the voices on this, or any other Garmin product of which I am aware. The Tom Tom Go 720 will allow you to record your own (or someone else's) voice on the unit (50 different phrases). However, any unit with the Text-to-Speech feature (which is what gives you the spoken street names) utilizes computerized voices to put the words together, which is why some sound "garbled." No unit does this better at this time. Tom Tom's pronunciations are, in my opinion, worse if anything (Branch instead of Bridge when abbreviated "Br", Crossing Island Parkway instead of Cross Island Parkway, etc.).

Question
: My nuvi is supposed to speak street names when giving voice prompts but it doesn't. How can I fix this?
Answer: All of the Garmin automotive GPS units that speak street names are also loaded with basic voice prompts (i.e. 'Turn Right in 500 feet') as well as 'text-to-speech' 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 line of products, please follow these steps:
  1. In the Main Menu, tap on the Settings icon.
  2. Tap on "Locale"
  3. The second line on this screen has a picture of a mouth. To the right, the current voice for the GPS device is listed. Tap it to change the voice.
  4. Select a voice that is labeled with (TTS) at the end. These voices will speak street names.
  5. Select "OK". The voice has now been changed.
The device should now speak street names.
