Presuming similar to Go 300 - Try checking your unit is properly fitted to the mount as this is where your microphone is and not in the unit itself. I hope this works.

My nuvi 200 is 3 years old suddenly speaking in what sounds like German instead of English. I have tried to reset but no joy


1. To select an English speaking voice
  • Press TOOLS (The spanner icon on the bottom right corner of the page showing WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS (Top left icon)
  • Press LANGUAGE
This brings you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
Press VOICE and select an English speaking voice.

2. Since it changed itself it's possible that the English voice file is corrupted and may need to be replaced. To replace a voice file you first need to;

  • Download and install the latest version of WEBUPDATER to your computer from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
  • Connect your satnav to the computer and run the Webupdater program
  • Webupdater will search for updates to your satnav operating system. Accept any updates it finds and they will be installed. When the update is complete it will offer you optional updates including VOICE FILES.
  • Tick the English speaking voice files you want to select them and click "continue" or "next" They will be downloaded to your satnav.
  • You then need to repeat the process described in paragraph 1 above to select an English speaking voice.

How to make it talk


For your GPS to speak, please select the sound files. Procedure explained below. Please note that although all GPS speak, only those that has an "S" in their Name (for example: ONEXL 340S) speak the street names. If there is no S at the end of their name, you can select any sound file for your GPS to speak. Not all sound files speak out the street names. If you would like to have the street names spoken, you need to select a voice that ends with computer. For example, the voice file selection: Simon, English UK, Computer will speak street names. But the voice file, Bonnie, English US, will not speak Street names. Dave, English US, computer will give you street names but Lori or Mandy, English US will not. Procedure to get the street names spoken: Tap on main screen. Tap on change preferences. Tap on arrow. Tap on change voices. Tap (select) a voice that ends with computer. Tap select. Tap done till you reach the main screen.

Was speaking names now only says turn next left or rt.


Hi,

Touch tools > settings > language > voice.

Voice- changes the language for voice promts.

Languages noted with a persons name are (tts)
text to speak voices. ( ie: American English Jill ) will speak

which have an extensive vocabulary and pronounce
the street names as you approach turns.

Regards
Richard.

To get your TomTom to speak street names, you will need to change the voice from a recorded voice to a computer voice. This can be done by:

  • Open the TomTom Home application
  • Click on the 'Add Traffic, Voices, Safety Cameras, etc.' button
  • Click on the 'Voices' button
  • Click on the 'Computer Voices' button
You can now select a voice to install on the device.
Once you have installed a voice, change it by
  • Disconnect the TomTom from your computer
  • Turn on the TomTom
  • Touch the screen to bring up the menu
  • Touch 'Change Preferences'
  • Touch 'Voice Preferences'
  • Touch 'Change Voice'
  • Use the Left / Right arrows to navigate to the voice you just installed (Look for the word 'computer' in the upper right corner by the male/female option)
  • Touch the 'Select' button

Help - my Garmin 260W no longer announces street names. How can I get this feature to reactivate????


All of the Garmin automotive GPS units that speak street names are also loaded with basic voice prompts (i.e. 'Turn Right in 500 feet') as well as 'text-to-speech' 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, please follow these steps:
  1. Touch Tools (Wrench Icon) from the Main Menu
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Touch Language*
  4. Touch on the blue rectangle that corresponds with Voice
  5. Touch on a voice that is labeled with (TTS) at the end. These voices will speak street names. Options without a name or the TTS label will say the distance until the next turn, but will not include the street name.
  6. Touch Ok
The voice has now been changed.

If this is not what you meant, please reply with further details. If you found the solution resolved your issue, kindly take a moment to award this a Fixya rating in appreciation of my efforts.

Thank you.

WON'T SPEAK STREET NAMES


Greetings Seecar,
I had the same problem with the TomTom One. What you need to do is this:
When you select a voice preference you have to use a "computer" voice as it seems the "human" voice cannot pronounce the street names. I don't know if your model has the same choices but mine is set to "Samantha, English US"
Hope this helps
