If the Garmin Nuvi Gps has suddenly quit speaking street names and now only says "Turn Left" or Turn Right", please follow the following procedure to restore your Nuvi so that it will begin speaking street names again:
Press the wrench/tools button at the main menu. Select the icon with the lips (language/locale).
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 "Turn Left" or "Turn 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.
I helped a buddy update his Uniden GPS (Trax350). Simply follow these steps and you should be done.
Uniden's MapTrax350 GPS device accepts voice-command programming and provides detailed audio
commands, as well, speaking aloud the map directions that are displayed
on its screen. Keeping your Trax350's firmware updated is crucial to
keeping it working correctly. Usually, you can go to a company's website
and download the latest software, but with Uniden, you must register
your product first to access the proper free upgrades. It takes minutes.
things you'll need: USB cable
1 Navigate to the link in the Resources section and fill in the required fields. Click on "Register." 2 Turn on your device and connect it to the computer using its USB cable. 3 Log in to the site with the password that was sent to your email address after you registered the device. 4 Choose "Software Upgrades." Select the MapTrax350 device, and the latest firmware upgrade will appear. Click "Download." 5 Select "Save File" and choose a location on your computer to save it to. After it has downloaded, double-click the program icon, select "Run" and follow the prompts to update your Trax350.
First press tools, then settings and then maps. Press map info and the name of your map should be displayed with a tick beside it. If there's no tick press the map name and a tick will appear beside it. The map is now selected and should be ok.
The problem of east/west may be solved when the map is sorted out. If not change the voice. Press tools, settings, language and the voice name and select another voice. If there's not another english speaking voice you can connect your satnav to the computer and open webinstaller. When it finishes checking for software updates it will give you the option to download new voices. Tick the ones you want and then press next. They will be downloaded and then when you have disconnected from the pc go through the process of selecting a new voice again.
I am not fimiarly with tom tom, but I do know on my garmin gps, there is a mute feature on the volume. On my mine it is on the main menu screen right after you turn it on. On yours you may have to go to a menu or something to turn the mute off.
Do you have the sound on?
I do not have this one, but the menus are probably similar. Go to change preferences (blue wrench) and make sure the sound is on. Also then select the voice you want (by scrolling further inthe preference menu to the 'change voice' icon (the lips).
Yes the Magella Maestro 4250 GPS receiver does have voice recognition built-in and it can be controlled using voice commands.
Magellan has produced a guide to using the voice control feature which is available on their website. To activate the voice control you say the word "Magellan" while viewing the menu screen or a map screen. Then you can speak one of the many commands available for the unit.
