Re: I woould like to change settings with the time...

To change the voice, tap the main part of the screen. Then click on the "wrench" icon (Change preferences). Then, click on the blue arrow to go to the next page. Then, click on the "mouth" icon (Change voice).

To change the time (clock), tap the main part of the screen. Then click on the "wrench" icon (Change preferences). Then, click on the blue arrow (4x) to go to the 5th page (Preferences 5 of 5). Click on the "clock" icon (Set clock).

Language back to english

A. If it's the display language you need to change:
To change the text language:
  1. Touch the Wrench icon on the screen with the Magnifying Glass, Map and Brief Case icons
  2. Touch the Lips and Clock icon
  3. Touch the top bar next to the pencil with the letter A
  4. Touch the up arrow until you see American English*
  5. Touch American English
  6. Touch OK
The device should be in the selected text language.
*Note - If American English is not the language needed, please select the desired language.

B.If you need to change the voice language you need to change the voice:
  1. Touch the Tool icon
  2. Touch Locale
  3. Touch Voice
  4. Touch the Voice Language you would like to use
  5. Touch 'Ok'
  6. Touch and hold the Back button to return to the main "Where To" and "View Map" menu
At this time your device should speak in the language you have set in step 5.
C. It's possible you won't have an english language voice installed. IF not connect the satnav to your computer. Download the latest version of webupdater from and install it on your computer. After it's installed you will get an option to download new voices. Select an english, american or any a voice from any english speaking country. When it's installed go back to para B and repeat to get an english voice selected.

Can not get voice comands

if you mean like "turn right on Madison" as an example, you must have the tts voice selected ...that is the computer generated will not work with human voices....

go in the system setting and go to the voice option, and see if you have any TTS voices...if not, they may have been deleted..if so, go HERE and download the web updater and 1st see if there are any updates, then after that it will give you an option to add voices...just select one or some that are TTS...after there loaded to your gps, go back in the voice option and change it to one of the TTS voices.

if you mean you have no sound at all, post back and i will help you further.

Wrong Time

This appears to be a issue with the Magellan code. The Magellan code is setting Daylight Savings Time according to 2007 rules and not the 2008 rules. Magellan support indicates to change the time zone from Eastern to Central, save it and then put the time zone back to Eastern Time. I do not understand this solution. You can simply uncheck the Daylight Savings Time option and this will put the clock to the correct time. You will need to check the Daylight Savings Time option to put the clock ahead one hour when the clock is off by one hour. Magellan support informs me this is a manual process. Magellan needs to create a fix in their firmware to change the clock according to 2008 Daylight Savings Time when the box is checked.

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.

This is a common problem as the GPS's bake in the sun and bounce around. The cone on your speaker is likely displaced and will need to be brought in for reconnection. It is also a problem on radar detectors along with garbled voice along with NO voice... Hope this helps!!!
