    I have the same problem . . . my garmin nuvi 650 does not tell the street name . . . I've only had it a couple of weeks. I've looked into all the menu items to try to correct, but haven't found any solution.

This series of Nuvi has 2 sets of voices for several of the available languages. The standard set is pre-recorded words linked together to form directions. This voice is usually clearer. However you lose street names and expanded vocabulary. The Text-To-Speech (TTS) voices are reading letters to form words, and uses an algorithm to come up with the approximate pronunciation of the word. You can select a standard voice (settings-locale-voice language) and lose some functionality, or select one of the many voices with TTS noted and get your full street names spoken

Garmin uses two type of voices. One is a recorded human voice which will tell you to turn right of left or keep right or left. The other is a computer generated voice which in addition to telling you to turn left or right also read street names. Change the voice under system.

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.

I have a Nuvi 255. It does not speak street names


Did you select Text To Speech (TTS) one?  If the voice doesn't have (TTS) it won't speak 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)
