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.

When driving no voice, check sound is fine


If you're just driving around and you haven't selected navigate to a destination there will not be a voice. Try navigating to a destination as that is where you will get voice navigation suggestions or commands. If you don't get a voice then, perhaps you need to download a voice or two. This can be done using the Garmin Express software and a computer connected to your Nuvi using the USB cord.

How do I reset my 260w to name the streets


The GPS is equipped to name streets even with voice.
Sometimes this options are disabled by the user.
In the case of the streets, the closer you zoom in, the more detail you get. This would include street names.
Get the manual here: http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/nuvi200_OwnersManual.pdf

Spoken street names


Try going to the menu and selecting the icon that allows you to change the voice on your GPS. When selecting a voice use one that has TTS at the end of the voice name. This should allow you to hear the street names as well as your destinations

No voice directions when i return to Home??


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).

Who do i turn voices off while listening to mp3s


If you go to change preferences you should see a voice preferences icon, tap it and you should see a disable voice with a red x over the icon. Just tap it and it should disable all of the voice instructions on the unit.

I say should since it works on my 720 and should on yours.
