    I have the same issue. It was advertised as having text-to-speech, but I can't figure it out. There is no mention of it in the manual. Is there a firmware or software update for this?

    First off my Jensen is Model NVX430BT the Touch & Go (manufactured by Audiovox): On my model, this is how I got the text-to-speech to work - when you first turn the unit on, from the Main Menu go to ‘Navigate’ then from that menu select ‘Settings’, then ‘Language & Units’ then ’Voice language’, from there my unit gives me three English (with the US flag) options: male-Jason, female –Amy, or female Samantha TTS v2.0. That’s the one - female Samantha TTS v2.0. Also just make sure after you select this option that you also you select 'OK' at the bottom to activate the new selection.

    I want to buy this unit but only if the TTS works correctly-when you put the female with the TTS by the name does that get it to work properly and give out street names? Please someone answer because it took me forever to find a unit that I liked and this is a necessity and the adhesive with unit which is not mentioned bu does come with unit doesn't it. thanks.

I'm about to return my Jensen NVX430BT because apparently the maps cannot be updated! The maps installed on the unit I just received are obviously outdated and there is no support from Jensen to get them updated. Too bad, this thing has it all except good directions.

I figured it out. Although not mentioned in the manual or on any of the menus, one of the female voice options has "tts" following the name. If you chose it, the text-to-speech will work. I tried it this weekend in San Francisco. It worked very well.

Built in hard drive with pre-loaded maps
Included maps loaded onto the 1 GB of Flash memory with full maps of the US + maps of Puerto Rico, Hawaii and Canada. The maps are pre-loaded so you will not need to spend hours loading maps onto a card or CD like you would need to do with competing products. The maps are also extremely accurate. This model uses the famous TeleAtlas Navigation Mapping system

Garmin Nuvi 260 - how to activate text to speech

Question: How do I change the Voice Language setting on my nuvi 2xx?
--> Answer: All of the Garmin® automotive GPS units that speak street names are also loaded with basic voice prompts (example: Turn Right in 500 feet) as well as Text-to-Speech (TTS) voices that speak street names. If one of the basic types of voice prompts has been selected, the voice prompts will not speak street names. In order to change this setting on the nüvi® 2xx series, follow these steps:
  1. In the Main Menu, touch Tools (Wrench icon).
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Press the Down arrow in the bottom right corner.
  4. Select Language.
  5. The first line on this screen is the Voice language. Touch the Current Voice option for the GPS device listed to change the Voice.
  6. Select a Voice that is labeled TTS. These will speak street names. Options without the TTS label will say the distance until the next turn, but will not include the street name.
  7. Select OK. The Voice has now been changed.
The device should now speak street names. This is tghe solution that I found on the Garmin site. It worked for my device. Hope this is helpful. solution = solution1description.innerHTML; Last modified on: 04/14/2008
