Nuvi 2557 says no more street names.

 

Michelle only tells me to turn left or right. No more street names. I checked the owners manual but can't find what is wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

non-TTS voice.

Sounds like you have selected a non-TTS voice. Go into your voice settings and select one that says "Speaks street names" or "Speaks real directions".

On my 3597, the Michelle voice is non-TTS, so it would not speak street names. So I use Samantha instead of Michelle.

Nope, most have tts and non-tts voices
My TomToms all do it, but there is an option in the settings screen to select a second voice to read street names
