My garmin 205w doesn't tell me verbally names of streets and exits. My brother has the same exact model and his does this function.

Some of the voices on Garmin satnavs speak streetnames and others don't. Press Tools, then press settings, then press Language. You'll see the Voice name. Press it and select a different one. (American English Jack or Samantha TTS will speak the streetnames). Press OK and it should then be ok.

The voice is not talking anymore

The Garmin 750 has a software bug that happens if "loading Maps" takes a long time. The voice gets changes to "Afrikanes" or "none"and won't work. To fix go to tools , settings, language check voice settings for prpoer selection.turn unit off and after 20 seconds turn back on this should reset the voice settings. Check your software version the latest from Garmin is 4.80

My Nuvi 750 has stopped talking, still shows the map but no voice

That has happened to me several times. When it happens I go to Tools > Settings > Language. In my case, the Voice field is empty, so I click on the Voice field and then select American English-Jill (TTS) and it's okay afterwards.

Late response on turn-by-turn voice directions- garmin nuvi 760

Hi, my 760 had the same problem, and a stutter when speaking street names. I fixed both by upgrading the software to v4.60 using the Garmin Webupdater.

Garmin i5 street pilot

I had an i5 that lost voice. I fixed it by just replacing the speaker. Take it apart and measure the resistance on the speaker. If it is open or not 8 ohms, then you can use this speaker.

Good Luck
