I no longer have a voice on my nevi 255w


You probably had your Voices directory corrupted. You can go to Garmin and download your Unit Software to replace it. Go to the following website:

and you can get it from there.

Have accidentally chosen spanish...how do I get back to english


You need to tough tools then settings then tap language.

Scroll till you see English and select. You can also set this for the voice as well as the text.
This is on page 35 of your user manual.

This is a link to the manual just incase you need it.

My Garmin Nuvi 255W does not pronounce the words "right" and "left" clearly. Right sounds like "roft" and left sounds like "laft". Very confusing because they both sound pretty much the same. Is there...


You can try changing the voice to a differant one. For an example a british voice or a female voice might be clearer for you.

I'm assuming that the voice is actually fine but just not that clear to you. If the voice file has a problem you can do a hard reset and it will reload the files and that may clear it up at the cost of having to setup everything again.

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.

Voice not found on my Nuvi 255w. How can I restore it?


You need to connect a data cable between your Nuvi and PC. Go to Garmin.com and download their WEBUPDATER program and run it. It will scan your Nuvi and tell you if there are any updates available and you'll be able to download all the voices you want.
