My 6250 Truck Nav does not give me verbal directions, such as turn left at the roundabout, I have tried resetting it and it will work for a short period then stop again, and if it can't find a destination it shuts down

    Welcome to the site...
    Have you tried a Soft/Drum roll restart on the device ??? This restarts the devices Operating System afresh

    Charge the device for at least 2Hrs….
    (Preferably using something like a Smartphone Charger using the Tomtom USB lead)
    OR have the device plugged into a power supply while the device is restarting
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound then release the on/off button.
    You won’t lose anything; it’s just like rebooting your PC
    I use a Soft/drum-roll start after any upgrade large or small.
    It’s also useful to keep in mind for sorting out most minor niggles....

    Are any of the sound Icons slashed through or is the volume slider set to zero....

    Are you using a TTS (Text to speech) Computer Voice ???
    Here in the UK its Serena or Malcolm...
    I would always choose a TTS (Text to speech) Computer Voice over the recorded voices.... The TTS Computer voices have a far greater range of vocabulary than the limited 56 sound samples of the recorded voices....
