Re: Adding more POI's and Activating TTS

Go to Garmin website and download/install POI Loader. Select a voice with TTS (Text to speech such as Jill)

No the 350 can not detect laser speed traps.

Does the speed camera detection mode work

It does not actually detect speed cameras !

what it does do is store a list of places where they are and can warn you in advance of that location.

These are known as POI (points of interest)
You should keep them updated.

It can also do the same for common speed trap areas.

To update to the latest requires buying a map update. Too expensive in my book. Garmin does have a POI loader utility that you can get at their site. Various web sites have POI listings that can then be installed. You can also find individual POI listings for such things as all Walmarts at a company's web site.

Garmin 350 text to speech not working

Update maps will not work here. You have to select language with TTS (Text to Speech) option.

e.g. American English - Jill (TTS) or British English - Daniel (TTS)

This option is available from Locale menu.

Garmin Nuvi 260 - how to activate text to speech

Question: How do I change the Voice Language setting on my nuvi 2xx?
--> Answer: All of the Garmin® automotive GPS units that speak street names are also loaded with basic voice prompts (example: Turn Right in 500 feet) as well as Text-to-Speech (TTS) 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 on the nüvi® 2xx series, follow these steps:
  1. In the Main Menu, touch Tools (Wrench icon).
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Press the Down arrow in the bottom right corner.
  4. Select Language.
  5. The first line on this screen is the Voice language. Touch the Current Voice option for the GPS device listed to change the Voice.
  6. Select a Voice that is labeled TTS. These will speak street names. Options without the TTS label will say the distance until the next turn, but will not include the street name.
  7. Select OK. The Voice has now been changed.
The device should now speak street names. This is tghe solution that I found on the Garmin site. It worked for my device. Hope this is helpful. solution = solution1description.innerHTML; Last modified on: 04/14/2008

Map fro Garmin

As far as I know you can only buy maps from Garmin, or a Garmin retailer.  The 660 should have all the maps for North America already loaded in it.

You can purchase Points of Interest (POI) databases from a variety of sources.  Just google POI.  These are not maps but they are adresses for points of interest such as restaurants, special services, and even speed trap cameras.
