I had the same problem. Sometimes the voice would start to speak and then cut off after a few sounds. I was still under warranty so Garmin replaced it (I think with a rebuilt I am now having display problems with).
Before I contacted them I tried software updates and resets and changing voices--alas it had to go back to the factory.

My nuvi is supposed to speak streetnames when giving voice prompts but it doesn't. How can I fix this?
All of the Garmin automotive GPS units that speak streetnames are also loaded with basic voice prompts (i.e. 'Turn Right in 500 feet') as well as 'text-to-speech' voices that speak streetnames. If one of the basic types of voice prompts has been selected, the voice prompts will not speak streetnames. In order to change this setting on the nüvi line of products, please follow these steps:
In the Main Menu, tap on the Settings icon.
Tap on "Locale"
second line on this screen has a picture of a mouth. To the right, the
current voice for the GPS device is listed. Tap it to change the voice.
Select a voice that is labeled with (TTS) at the end. These voices will speak streetnames.
