I want to do an upgrade on my Garmin Nuvi 255W.


UpGRADE or UpDATE?

Upgrade, sell the old one and buy a new one.

Update, Register the unit on the Garmin site. Download Garmin Express to your computer. Connect the unit with a mini-D charging lead and you can take software upgrades. For map updates, it depends as some are free and some are on a subscription.

My garmin nuvi 255w does not speak street names. How do I set it up to speak the street names?


I'm afraid the 255w does not speak street names. A satnav needs to have "Text To Speech" capability before it can speak the names and the 255 doesn't have it.

We have a garmin nuvi 255w. We need to know what is the latest map update. Our gps has "CN North America, NT 2010.30" version on it. Is ther something newer than this.


Maps for most GPS devices are updated several times a year. Your map is from 2010 and should be updated. You can go to the garmin site and pay to download and install upgraded maps or do a google search for map upgrades and you'll find some services offering lifetime upgrades for a few dollars more than the Garmin one time upgrade. I did this and have had no problems updating the maps on my Garmin Nuvi 250.

Does the garmin nuvi 255W speak street names


I had the same problem with my nuvi 255w. Called tech support at Garmin and they told me one of the voices under Tools, Settings, Language, Voice has to end in a persons name. I had British English selected and it did not speak street names. When I selected Austrailian Englich - Karen, the street names all work fine.

You will need to do the following to get your unit to speak street names.
Tools/Settings/Language/Voice,select one that has TTS after its name.
I would suggest that you go on Google and download the 60 page complete Manual which also has Troubleshooting in it.

Maybe it is looking for the GPS? You have to use a USB cable and plug the GPS in. The computer sees it as another drive, that is where you can add photos, POI, etc. Without the GPS plugged in, Garmin can not connect to download maps. Hope that helps
