Hi,
Tap "Tools", "Setting", "Language", under "Text", choose "American English", under "Voice", choose a voice that speaks street names.
Please let me know if it helps.
Thanks

Go to the menu that allow you to change the voice on your GPS. Select a different voice that has TTS at the end of the voice name. This should allow you to hear street names as well *** your destinations

The previous tip is some what correct other then they haqve forgot to mention, your gps must use a computer generated voice to pronounce street names..a human voice can not do that..if you do not have any computer (TTS) on your gps..download the Garmin web updater HERE and install it on your computer and follow the directions..there is probably an update for you garmin also...after that has installed, click next and select a computer voice to install on your garmin

if you still need further help, just reply to this post

SOURCE: nuvi 750 stopped saying street names

Press the wrench/tools button at the main menu. Select the icon with the lips (language). You should see (2) buttons labeled American English. The first one makes all of the text on the Nuvi in the English alphabet. The second button is for the voice. If it just says "American English", then it will only say "Left" or "Right". Press this button and select a TTS voice (Text to Speech), like Jill, Jack, Daniel.....etc. That will give you back your street names.

SOURCE: How do you get GArmin nuvi 265WT to speak street names?

I just purchased similar model (Nuvi 265W) and experiment for sometime. The trick is on the language option with or without TTS.

Select Setting from menu, go to language and pick the Voice option. Select any one of the language with TTS (Text to Speech) and save. Those that without (TTS) will not talk "street name", this is why some cheaper model can't speak street name, only turn-by-turn instruction, like nuvi model 205.

Enjoy

SOURCE: I have a Nuvi 255. It does not speak street names

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

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.

My garmin 750 doesn't identify the streets that i should be turning at.Just tells me distance when to turn.


Do you mean it is not speaking the street names? Have you selected a voice that uses the Text-to-speach (TTS) feature? From the main screen press, "Tools", then "Settings", then "Language." Next to the voices that will speak street names, you will see the (TTS) designation. Press one of these and the unit should tell you the street names.

Speaking the names of major streets


It will only tell you the names of the streets if you use the COMPUTER voice. The other voices will not announce street names. So go to your voice selection and pick the computer voice...either male or female.
