Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver
When I download maps to the SD card through MapSource, my gps says the maps are locked. How do I unlock them?
Re: Not sayinstreet names.
After you turn on your unit touch the wrench icon in the bottom right of the screen, this will take you to a menu which features "Settings" in the upper left of the screen. Touch "settings" and scroll down to "language" by using the up and down buttons in the lower right of the screen (down 1 should do it). Touch "Language" and in the voice category find and select "American English - Jill (TTS)". This is the voice that will give you Text To Speech (TTS) speaking the street names in English. If you prefer Spanish or French, find the appropriate catergories with "(TTS)" beside them - "Espanol Americas - Paulina (TTS)" and "Francais Canadien - Julie (TTS)" respectively. Any other selection will only give directional instructions such as "turn left in XXX".
After you have selected your voice press "OK" and back out to your main menu showing "Where to?" and View Map".
Now, when you navigate, you should hear an American female voice giving you directions by street name - assuming your volume is high enough to hear it.
RE: The computer icon displaying when you try to use your unit in the car with the 12 VDC cord.
You probably have a problem with the cord. The pin length in the USB style connector is critical and if it doesn't match up just right the GPS thinks it is hooked up to a computer. If you know someone who has a Garmin NUVI try using their cord and see if you have the same problem. Either way, call Garmin and see if they will send you a replacement cord or otherwise help fix the problem.

When I power up my garmin 260w in the car it go's into charge. A Little computer comes on the screen and it will not let me view anything. When I pull the power cord off the unit powers up and works great with the battery. It does it on my computer at home also. Whats the story with this unit.

Regarding 260 not saying street names, you might have turned the volume right down. Hit Volume icon, and then increase the volume. Let us know if that fixes your problem.

You need to register register your unit and get an unlock code from Garmin. Go to Garmin website where you registered mapsource and then add your Nuvi 260 for addition unlock code.
