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.

SOURCE: How do you get GArmin nuvi 265WT to speak street names?

I just purchased similar model (Nuvi 265W) and experiment for sometime. The trick is on the language option with or without TTS.

Select Setting from menu, go to language and pick the Voice option. Select any one of the language with TTS (Text to Speech) and save. Those that without (TTS) will not talk "street name", this is why some cheaper model can't speak street name, only turn-by-turn instruction, like nuvi model 205.

Enjoy

SOURCE: My Garmin 760 does not speak street name on the turns. How to set dthis?

On your GPS device, Touch settings>Select language>Select Voice and select the TTS(Test To Speech) man or women to speak.
Make sure the volume is up, and the mute is off.
The pre-recorded voices(those with out a persons name) have a limited vocabulary and do not speak names of locations or streets.
hope it helps you out

You will need to do the following to get your unit to speak street names.

I would suggest that you go on Google and download the 60 page complete Manual which also has Troubleshooting in it.

Spoken directions do not give actual street names


Hello, Mike, congratulations on your purchase of the gps. Here's what you should do:

Tap MENU - SETTINGS - REGIONAL.

Choose Voice Profile. This button shows the current language of the voice guidance. By tapping the button, you can select a new one from the list of available languages and speakers. For the speaker to announce actual street names you must select a language that indicates TTS (Text-To-Speech).

To hear a sample voice just tap on any of languages. Tap OK when you have selected the new spoken language.

GPS does not pronounce street names


Hi,

The only vioces to pronounce street names are the vioces
noted with a persons name at the side of it.
These are the TTS text to speach, voices.
They will pronounce the street names for you then.

Hope this helps
Regards
Richard.

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:

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.

Help - my Garmin 260W no longer announces street names. How can I get this feature to reactivate????


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, please follow these steps:
  1. Touch Tools (Wrench Icon) from the Main Menu
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Touch Language*
  4. Touch on the blue rectangle that corresponds with Voice
  5. Touch on a voice that is labeled with (TTS) at the end. These voices will speak street names. Options without a name or the TTS label will say the distance until the next turn, but will not include the street name.
  6. Touch Ok
The voice has now been changed.

If this is not what you meant, please reply with further details. If you found the solution resolved your issue, kindly take a moment to award this a Fixya rating in appreciation of my efforts.

Thank you.

Gamin nuvi 260W - Cannot set to text-to-voice.


Garmin automotive GPS devices that have text-to-speech (speak street names) are also loaded with pre-recorded voices that do not speak street names (example: "Turn Right in 500 feet"). If one of these pre-recorded voices has been selected, the voice prompts will not speak street names.
To change the voice prompt to spoken street names:
  1. Touch Tools (Wrench icon) from the Main Menu
  2. Touch Settings*
  3. Select Language or Locale
  4. Touch the Voice language option
  5. Select a voice option that includes a person's name (ex. Emily) or TTS. Options without a name or the TTS label will say the distance until the next turn, but will not include the street name.
  6. Select OK
The device should now speak street names.
*Note: The Setting option is not required on all nuvi units.



Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. – I would greatly appreciate a FixYa! rating if the solution I provided fixed or helped you resolve your problem.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!
