I think you need to speak with the tec service at the manufacturer of your device (whose make and model you don't give) to resolve this trouble. Had you given more device detail, I could have provided a link for you.
Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

Why doesn't it say the NAME OF THE STREET that you are to turn on? It will tell you how far ahead the turn is and then tell you to turn R or L but it doesn't give the name. Also, there have been several...


I have a tomtom 920, it will say the street name to turn on if set to do so & only then if using computer voices, not human voices. Tuning the wrong direction could be its wrong or its trying to take the fast route via a highway, longer route but get there faster

- To assist with GPS not finding satellites, go to the official TomTom support site and download and install QUICKGPS to your TomTom One.
- Update your Map and QuickGPS files on a regular basis via Tom Tom Home.

It has helped me and hope it will minimise your issues: please let me know how you go.

Magellan Has Been Freezing Up Since I Replaced the Charger


Magellan web page has a firmware upgrade for your 3250. It is Version 4.86 unless you already have it. If that doesn't help, go to there support page and at the bottom you can see if one of the questions on the page is something that is similar to your problem. If not you will be able to ask a question yourself. Good luck.

It sounds like the ribbon cable that connects the screen to the controller might be seated incorrectly. I would check that.

Text to speech incorrect info


Yes, this is basically normal. This is not a shortcoming of the GPS per se, but of the maps that it's using and where on the map it has recorded that certain addresses are located.

The maps that the GPS systems don't (typically, to my knowledge) have every building on them, instead they just have numbers recorded every so often on the street and then the machine interpolates where a particular address ought to be based on known intersections. E.g., 150 Foo Street ought to somewhere around the middle of the 100 block of Foo St. on the "even" side of the street. So this is probably why it thinks your apartment is slightly further up the street than it is; when people build things, we often don't allocate exactly the same amount of frontage to each street number, hence the offsets.

I'm still pretty impressed with my Garmin and doubt I could find my way home without it. Good luck!
