My garmin is not showing anything but waterways and unpaved roads.


Make sure that the unit isn't set to "Off Road" in the navigation settings. "Off Road" is for hiking. Also make sure that you have a valid city navigator map that contains streets and that it is selected (check marked) on the map info screen. Otherwise you may just be using the base map which only contains major highways

How do i find a town center on a garmin nuvi 205 sold in france


Unlike TomTom satnavs Garmins don't have an option of setting the centre of a town. The only option is to enter a common street name, like "Main Street", and drive to there. If there's no "Main Street" in the town type any letter and press "done"so it will show you a list of streets to select from.

My garmin 750 doesn't identify the streets that i should be turning at.Just tells me distance when to turn.


Do you mean it is not speaking the street names? Have you selected a voice that uses the Text-to-speach (TTS) feature? From the main screen press, "Tools", then "Settings", then "Language." Next to the voices that will speak street names, you will see the (TTS) designation. Press one of these and the unit should tell you the street names.

Garmin GPS Model 205 - does it give street name?


I don't believe this unit offers a street name function. The hard drive is not powerful enough.

Portable GPS


All of the Garmin automotive GPS units that speak street names are also loaded with basic voice prompts. If one of these types of voice prompts has been selected, the voice prompts will not speak street names.

In order to change this setting on the StreetPilot c550/580, please follow these steps:
  1. In the Main Menu, tap on the Settings icon.
  2. Tap on "Locale"
  3. The second line on this screen has a picture of a mouth. To the right, the current voice for the GPS device is listed. Tap it to change the voice.
  4. Select a voice that is labeled with (TTS) at the end. These voices will speak street names.
  5. Select "OK". The voice has now been changed.
Your device should now speak street names.

Gives numbers instead of names on main rds and highways


The Garmins are designed to read the highway or interstate numbers instead of names. This is because on the markers on the side of the road, they are labeled by numbers. Here in NY it calls the Long Island Expressway I-495, the Clearview I-295, etc. If the unit is speaking the names of surface streets, it is working as it was built to.

Garmin 660


The Garmin GPS' are designed to read major roads and highways this way, as this is how they are marked as you drive on them. There is no way to change this.
