SOURCE: Garmin 265 W won't speak street names

Hi,

Below is the procedures for setting the languages...

Touch tools > settings > language > voice.

Voice- changes the language for voice promts.
Languages noted with a persons name are (tts)
text to speak voices.

which have an extensive vocabulary and pronounce
the street names as you approach turns.

The pre-recoreded voices (those without a persons name)
have a limited vocabulary and (do not speak names of locations or streets)

Text language- change all on-screen text to the selected language,
changing the text language does not change the language of user entered data
or map data, such as street names.

Keyboard- select the keyboard for your language,
you can also change the keyboard language mode from any keyboard
by touching the mode button

Adjusting the volume levels
From the "menu" page touch "volume"
to adjust the volume.

To adjust the volume levels for the media player
and the navigation prompts,
please click.

Tools > settings > Volume > Restore
Restore will, restore to origional volume levels.


Regards
Richard

The Garmin Nuvi 265 does not speak the name of the street I am turning into. It says "turn Left" but not "Turn Left into James Street". Can this feature be switched on? Also it tells...


Check to make sure that the voice you selected has TTS (Text To Speech) after the name, this will speak the street name, otherwise it is just a generic right or left.

I restarted my Garmin nuvi 265, and it shows that I'm in a different country, which is correct and the right state I'm in. Although, it still shows no satellite connection, so I can't access the street I'm...


If your 265W was bought in the US, then taken to another country.... until those MAPS are downloaded, the satellite way connect, but since it cannot locate you, it may just show you the 1st error message in the CPU. Download that country's maps.

Is the Garmin 205W the same as the 265W, &/or what is the difference?


No, not quite the same, but very similar. The 265W has Bluetooth built in, for tying it to other bluetooth devices such as your headset, or car stereo that has bluetooth, also the 265 can SPEAK the street names, where the 205W only displays them. Otherwise they are identical units though.

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up
, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.

How do you get GArmin nuvi 265WT to speak street names?


I just purchased similar model (Nuvi 265W) and experiment for sometime. The trick is on the language option with or without TTS.

Select Setting from menu, go to language and pick the Voice option. Select any one of the language with TTS (Text to Speech) and save. Those that without (TTS) will not talk "street name", this is why some cheaper model can't speak street name, only turn-by-turn instruction, like nuvi model 205.

Enjoy
