    Garmin Nuvi 255W

    The awaited day materialized today when we got the mail. My brand new Garmin Nuvi 255W gps arrived. Of course, I had to mount it in the car and drive somewhere. The quick start instructions were not too good and neither were the online manuals.

    Anyway, without reading anything I jumped in the car and off we go using Map Mode. The default factory setting is 3D mode so I drove to Angola and stopped and changed it back to 2D. I also entered a GoTo address and off we go. Drat – no voice street names occurred.

    After I got back home I looked in the manual – nothing about spoken street names – so I called Support & after 35 minutes a guy came on and said you have to set the American English voice to either Jack or Samantha. I have to test it tomorrow. It is very easy to use.
