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.

My Nuvi 750 has stopped talking, still shows the map but no voice


That has happened to me several times. When it happens I go to Tools > Settings > Language. In my case, the Voice field is empty, so I click on the Voice field and then select American English-Jill (TTS) and it's okay afterwards.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 770 that won't "speak" when navigating


Frequently (about 20% of the time) when I have my Nuvi 770 plugged in, in the car and I turn it on, it gets stuck at the start up screen where it says, “Loading maps” I wait several minutes and it never completes. Then I turn it off and turn it back on and it comes right up, but with no voice. When I go to Tools > Setup > Language it shows no language and I cannot select one. I have to plug my Nuvi 770 into the computer, run web updater, it detects that I already have the software loaded and I select the option to download it again. When it has completed, I unplug the Nuvi and then go to Tools > Setup > Language and select American English.

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.

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.

NO SOUND ON GARMIN 750


I had the same problem. I fixed it by going to settings, then to language, and then entering American English into the Voice category. Hope this helps.

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)
