Nuvi 500 didn't come with Text to Speech? If you have one Garmin has just released a firmware update to add this in. Download webupdater from Garmin's website, connect up your Nuvi 500 and away you go.

Doug...

Got it and already done it, the pronunciation is a laugh while driving though.. Try the comedy voices Dr Nightmare (no TTS though) is a crack up.. "You have arrived at your Ghaslty destination"

Great little unit hey!
I cant beleive how accurate the POIs are, Ive used it to find ATMs, fuel, Pubs and even a bottle'o in an unfamiliar loaction.

Love it!

Matt.

You may be able to hack the TTS codes with this model. You can with the 760.

Instead of 'recalculating' mine now says 'OK, have it your way' ;-}

More here.
