- Amazingly, the 260 does not come with Text-To-Speech turned on.
The whole point of the upgrade to the 260 is text-to-speech (TTS). So
go into the settings and go to "Voice", and choose an English voice
with "TTS" in the title. The default voice does tell you to "turn right
in point three miles", and all GPS receivers with voice prompting will
do this, but that's not Text-To-Speech. TTS actually pronounces (or
does the best it can) at pronouncing street names. So instead of "turn
right", you get "Turn right on Jackson street".
Question: How do I change the Voice Language setting on my nuvi 2xx?
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:
In the Main Menu, touch Tools (Wrench icon).
Press the Down arrow in the bottom right corner.
The first line on this screen is the Voice language. Touch the Current Voice option for the GPS device listed to change the Voice.
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.
