Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

What am I doing wrong or amI.

I bought a nuvi 255W. I want to find a street in another city. I am asked by the nuvi for the address and street name. I don't have a street number, only the street name, I only want to find the street not a address on the street, yet the nuvi keeps asking me for the street number. What should I do?

Just press done on the street selection screen without entering a number. alternatively if you know the crossing street you can enter the streets into the intersection option in the where to menu

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.

Can't type in an address. After typing first 2 letters it goes to different roads and won't allow me to type in the correct one.


I would first check what city or town your looking in....

go to Where To..... Address....on the addres screen does it say Select City in ( city the address is in ) ?

If not on bottom of screen it will have change State / Province


If you want you can send me the address or street name and i will check to see if the same happens here....

sometimes if you enter 123 N West St you will need to put 123 North West St or 123 St Anne would be

123 Saint Anne

Wrong street number


The maps are purchased from the post office. The post office locally will many times call your address other than the legal address for various and sundry reasons.
Please check with your local officials and you will see what your legal address is. I found this out working for the Census. 1b8d9a5.jpg

Does the garmin nuvi 255W speak street names


I had the same problem with my nuvi 255w. Called tech support at Garmin and they told me one of the voices under Tools, Settings, Language, Voice has to end in a persons name. I had British English selected and it did not speak street names. When I selected Austrailian Englich - Karen, the street names all work fine.

You will need to do the following to get your unit to speak street names.
Tools/Settings/Language/Voice,select one that has TTS after its name.
I would suggest that you go on Google and download the 60 page complete Manual which also has Troubleshooting in it.
