Garmin 760 - No Voice Directions

I have a new Garmin Nuvi 760. The volume is turned up to 80% and language selected is american english jack. The FM Transmitter is disabled.  When I drive, there are no voice directions, even though it maps out the route. My phone rings when my Bluetooth is connected. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Voice will not come on to promp direction change. If the voice does comes on it is garbled and incomplete.

    I am not familiar with the 760, but is there other sound? If not, have you tried listening to the headphone jack? If there is sound there, then your internal speaker may be bad.



    What if you turn on the FM transmitter? Can you hear audio through your fm radio?

Check The system settings, I had to download the newest version of the audio software for the voice to work. The software vanished once and I had to re-download it using the web updater.

Hopefully it will stick around this time.

When I load the new software the voice works.

How to change the voice on garmin 750? /


Press the wrench/tools button at the main menu. Select the icon with the lips (language). You should see (2) buttons labeled American English. The first one makes all of the text on the Nuvi in the English alphabet. The second button is for the voice. If it just says "American English", then it will only say "Left" or "Right". Press this button and select a TTS voice (Text to Speech), like Jill, Jack, Daniel.....etc.

No sound in the Garmin GPS


Apparantly a common problem.

My 760 randomly defaults to a non TTS (text to speech) setting. When it does, it won't speak the directions.

Solution from the Garmin Site:

Answer:
This could occur if the voice language has been de-selected. If you can hear the device produce a beeping noise then the voice language needs to be changed or selected. If you do not hear any noise then the FM Transmitter might be selected or the sound has been Muted.
To check the voice language:
  1. Touch Tools
  2. Touch Settings
  3. Touch Language
  4. Touch the Voice option
  5. Touch on a selection that has TTS* in the description (example: American English - Jill - TTS)
  6. Touch OK
  7. Touch Back
The device should speak when in a route.
*Note - If the device is a 755, 765, 775, 785 then the selection will contain "Speaks Street Names" in the description.

Voice prompt and more


First go to Menu > Tools > Settings > Language (icon is red lips)

You will see three settings: Voice, Text, Keyboard.

The voice setting may be blank. That just happens. Touch and be sure to select "American English, Jill or Jack, TTS. The "TTS" is very important in that it causes street names to be spoken. Example: "Turn left on Main Street." If you choose a Voice Language that is not TTS, as are the first selections shown, you will get commands without street names. Example: "Turn left." but it won't say the street name. After you have done this the 760, and maybe other models of the nuvi, will lose this setting on a random basis. Everytime it goes silent you have to redo the process of setting up the voice language. Who knows why?

Garmin 760 not in English


Hi, from the "Where To" / "View Map" screen, select the tools (spanner icon), then Settings (spanner icon again) then Language (Mouth icon).
There should be 3 options, the lower left is the Keyboard; select this then scroll to British English. The upper icon is the Voice, choose a suitable one (if it says (TTS) it will read out street names as ir gives directions), the top-right option is Text, again choose British English.

There is no sound on my nuvi 760


I had the same problem! When I went under Settings/Language/ there was no voice that the machine could find! It is. I think a firmware bug or something like that.   You have to reset the 760 by holding the on-off switch on the left position for more than 8 seconds. After that you will have to choose the Language of your choice again. Let us see what will the next software upgrade brings us as a better solution.

No voice prompts on my new nuvi 750- volume level not muted.


This will work--go to Tools, Settings, Language and then select a Language that has TTS following it--this is the text to speech choice. Choose English TTS Jill if you like to hear the woman.

Go back into your tools and settings and re select the voice of american jack and see if it comes back on.
I lost the voice 2 days ago while on a trip from tenn. to florida and this fixed it. we never shut off the voice but somehow while using bluetooth or FM trans it shut off voice transmiting.

My Garmin Nuvi 350 sound not working


I had this problem with the 760. Solved by going to settings>language and discovering I had no choice for "voice". I pressed that selection and picked american english and my problem was solved. Garmin support said sometimes the program gets corrupted and that choice needs to be made again.

Got a solution for you:

You need to set the language properly in order to get the speech for street name

Go to setup --> Locale - Voice Language

Select language with TTS (Text-To_Speech) next to it:

ie:
American English-Jack (TTS )
American English-Jill (TTS)
Australia English-Karen (TTS)
