When you choose a voice from the menu, only the ones marked TTS (text-to-speech) will tell you the street names. The others just say turn right in .. miles.

My nuvi 200w had voice yesterday, but today won't talk to me. I have the mute box unchecked and have also tried it in the checked position as well. No luck. Roger


Try changing the announcer's voice first to see if you have any sound. To do this tap TOOLS - SETTINGS - LANGUAGE on your main screen.

Try a couple of different voices. Select ones that end in TTS (Text-To-Speech)

If you still do not have any sound, check again that the mute box is not checked and increase the volume to 100%.

If that doesn't do it, reset the unit to factory default settings.

Spoken directions do not give actual street names


Hello, Mike, congratulations on your purchase of the gps. Here's what you should do:

Tap MENU - SETTINGS - REGIONAL.

Choose Voice Profile. This button shows the current language of the voice guidance. By tapping the button, you can select a new one from the list of available languages and speakers. For the speaker to announce actual street names you must select a language that indicates TTS (Text-To-Speech).

To hear a sample voice just tap on any of languages. Tap OK when you have selected the new spoken language.

I have a tomtom xl 330.s and I was told that text to speech would announce the upcoming street name, but the only response that I get is a command to turn left or right.


In order for the text to speech to work you need to make sure that you have a computer voice enabled. Then after you select a computer voice make sure you check the option to say aloud street names.

No, it is not possible to configure the unit to do something it is not designed to do. The text to speech feature utilizes a computerized voice with pre-programmed street names. Your unit does not contain this programming.

Garmin 350 text to speech not working


Update maps will not work here. You have to select language with TTS (Text to Speech) option.

e.g. American English - Jill (TTS) or British English - Daniel (TTS)

This option is available from Locale menu.

Garmin Nuvi 260 - how to activate text to speech


Question: How do I change the Voice Language setting on my nuvi 2xx?
--> Answer: 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:
  1. In the Main Menu, touch Tools (Wrench icon).
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Press the Down arrow in the bottom right corner.
  4. Select Language.
  5. The first line on this screen is the Voice language. Touch the Current Voice option for the GPS device listed to change the Voice.
  6. 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.
  7. Select OK. The Voice has now been changed.
The device should now speak street names. This is tghe solution that I found on the Garmin site. It worked for my device. Hope this is helpful. solution = solution1description.innerHTML; Last modified on: 04/14/2008
