Go to tools, then settings, then language, then viose and chose a voise with (TTS). this means text to speach. good luck!!

In the voice setup, you have to choose a voice that has TTS (text to speech) option. The other voices, while they might sound better, can't read street names. Once I selected a voice that has TTS it started working.

My Garmin Nuvi 760 GPS announces the turns but not the street names.


1. This is because some voice files are only basic but others speak the street names. To change the voice file press TOOLS, then press SETTINGS then press LANGUAGE. Press the VOICE and change it to a different one.
2. You can download extra voices, if you need to, by connecting your satnav to your computer, Download webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 and install it. When it's installed it'll look for software updates. After this it'll give you the option to download extra voices. Select the ones you want and press next. Follow the prompts and they will be downloaded to your satnav. When you have disconnected your satnav from the computer you can select a new voice as described in para 1 above.

Garmin nuvi 750 won't say street names after upgrade to 2009 maps


User's manual available at www.garmin.com. Select "support", then "Manuals". Enter "mobile electronics"+"automotive"+"model #". Manual says that selecting a language with a person's name will speak street names.

Doesn't name streets to turn on before the turn.


Go to https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/ and look up your specific GPS system, some do not name the street by name, some (like the nuvi 780) do.

My Garmin 760 does not speak street name on the turns. How to set dthis?


On your GPS device, Touch settings>Select language>Select Voice and select the TTS(Test To Speech) man or women to speak.
Make sure the volume is up, and the mute is off.
The pre-recorded voices(those with out a persons name) have a limited vocabulary and do not speak names of locations or streets.
hope it helps you out

GPS does not pronounce street names


Hi,

The only vioces to pronounce street names are the vioces
noted with a persons name at the side of it.
These are the TTS text to speach, voices.
They will pronounce the street names for you then.

Hope this helps

Richard.

Late response on turn-by-turn voice directions- garmin nuvi 760


Hi, my 760 had the same problem, and a stutter when speaking street names. I fixed both by upgrading the software to v4.60 using the Garmin Webupdater.
