Voice command must be enabled. To use the phone through this device you must enable BlueTooth and pair the device with your phone. When you say it is turning off, it may be just dimming the display as a way to save power. Please do read the manual.

The Garmin's not very good at recognising the default set phrase to initial voice command; i.e. "Voice Command". If you bring up the Tools menu, and touch Voice Command, it will tell you what phrase it's expecting to hear and provide a button to touch to customise it. The default, as I said, is "voice command", but for some reason, it thinks it's pronounced something like "Vwuss commont". Try it. It might work!
I changed my voice command phrase to "Voys Commarnd" (I'm English - it's how my accent would be written phonetically). It now works most of the time without a problem.
It seems that it's a software problem ,. To software problem on your device , you need to reset it .

message will appear asking to confirm restoring the Nuvi to factory

HI Con613, Voice command is one of the feature of the mobile. It is important and if u understand it, it is very easy and useful to us. Voice command is used to perform some sort of function (such as to open apps, camera, voice recorder, etc. and to call peoples) by giving voice command. For it u need to go to voice command in tools in menu, then a list of apps appears. In it, u choose 1 apps, then it gives command to record voice. Record any voice of urs as command for it. When in standby mode or desktop, hold right soft key until voice command appears. Then give the same voice as recorded before to open the choosen apps. Same process is to be applied for the apps. For dialling people from voice command, u need to go to the person's contact. Go to options of it and add a voice as command for it. And same process is to be applied as to open the apps. thank you =============================================== It is for mobile users. If it is helpful for u, u can feedback me. And i will help u later in other problems. SAJAN
