Press TOOLS ( the spanner symbol on the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol)
Press LANGUAGE (The lips icon)
Press VOICE. Select a voice from an English speaking country that ends in TTS. The TTS letters stand for "Text to Speech" and indicates that this voice will name the streets. Some of the voices are more basic and are unable to.

If you don't have a TTS voice on the satnav you can download them. Install WEBUPDATER on your computer from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
When it's installed connect your satnav to your computer with the mini USB lead and run the WEBUPDATER program. The program will look for updates to your satnav software. Install the updates and when it's finished it will look for optional updates includingn Voices. Select only English speaking voices with tts added to the end of the names and download them.

When the download is complete and you've disconnected your satnav from the computer you'll need to select a tts voice as described in the first paragraph above.

Would you like to back up a copy of your Garmin Nuvi 1310 Favorites and Waypoints?

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After a hard reset or loss of data, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
I hope that helps.

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
