I want to leave Michigan and go to Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I am unable to program this into my Garmin nuvi 1300. Any suggestions?


You will need to enter an address in Toronto for it to be able to route. Try "1 Yonge Street, Toronto, Ontario". That will take you to downtown Toronto.

My garmin nuvi 255w does not speak street names. How do I set it up to speak the street names?


I'm afraid the 255w does not speak street names. A satnav needs to have "Text To Speech" capability before it can speak the names and the 255 doesn't have it.

How do make the gps announce the street name to


Neither the Nuvi 250W nor the Nuvi 205W have Text to Speech (which is the feature that allows the unit to speak the street names), so you cannot make yours speak street names. I'm sorry.

Yes it does. You will hear turn by turn instructions only when you have the unit set (Where to) to go to a destination.

Did you select Text To Speech (TTS) one?  If the voice doesn't have (TTS) it won't speak street names.
