First press the speaker symbol and check that the volume is not down fully or that the mute box is not ticked. If it is press the mute box to untick it or increase the volume. Otherwise follow the instructions below.

1. Press Tools, then press Settings (or Locale on some models), then press Language. You will see a bar for Voice. Press Voice and select a different voice. If this doesn't solve the problem it's most likely because the voice file has become corrupted. To replace the corrupted file.
2. Download webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 and connect your satnav to your computer. Install webupdater and your satnav will look for updates. After it's finished it will give you an option to download voices. Click the ones you want and press next. The voices selected will be downloaded to your satnav.
When you have removed the satnav from the computer you'll need to select a voice again as described in para 1 above.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 265w and it stopped saying street names. How can i get it to say street names again?


From your main menu, tap tools>settings>language. On this page under voice, select a voice and make sure it has the TTS next to the voice for speech. If you do not have any, you need to download garmin webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

Download install and run garmin webupdater and follow the onscreen prompts. When you get to the additional updates page, scroll down to find the voice and update the ones you would like on your unit. Once the update is complete unplug your unit and allow it to restart. Then go back to tools>settings>language and select your voice.

Would you like to back up a copy of your Garmin Nuvi 265W Favorites and Waypoints?

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After a hard reset or loss of data, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
I hope that helps.
