You probably had your Voices directory corrupted. You can go to Garmin and download your Unit Software to replace it. Go to the following website:

http://www8.garmin.com/support/blosp.jsp

and you can get it from there.

My garmin nuvi 255w no longer announces street names after updating


You may need to choose a different voice. From the main screen click on the Tools icon in the bottom corner. Go into Language then Voice. Then choose a voice that has a Name beside it such as American Jill or one that has the letters TTS.

My Garmin Nuvi 255W does not pronounce the words "right" and "left" clearly. Right sounds like "roft" and left sounds like "laft". Very confusing because they both sound pretty much the same. Is there...


You can try changing the voice to a differant one. For an example a british voice or a female voice might be clearer for you.

I'm assuming that the voice is actually fine but just not that clear to you. If the voice file has a problem you can do a hard reset and it will reload the files and that may clear it up at the cost of having to setup everything again.

My garmin nuvi 205 no longer has voice but it still beeps when I use the touch screen so the speaker works. What could be the problem? It is a year old and worked until yesterday. Everything else is fine.


sounds like the driver for the speaker circuit is defective, call Garmin, since it is only one year old they may repair it for free to protect there good name, I assume u don't have the speaker turned off, this can be checked by going into the tool symbol and selecting sound volume.

Voice not found on my Nuvi 255w. How can I restore it?


You need to connect a data cable between your Nuvi and PC. Go to Garmin.com and download their WEBUPDATER program and run it. It will scan your Nuvi and tell you if there are any updates available and you'll be able to download all the voices you want.
