When you say "voice" do you just mean the voice or all sound? (ex. touch screen beeps, mp3 sound etc.)

Try using a set of headphones. If you hear the sound there, then your speaker is bad. The speaker is a mechanical device and could break. It might be covered under Garmin's warranty if you registered it, however they may not cover the repairs if it was dropped.

I'd try Garmin first if its registered and under warranty. If not please email me at ks3r at sharc dot net and I can offer you a repair quote to replace the speaker.

I have references.

if you downloaded them from the website there should be a place where you can download them directly to the unit if it is connected. if it works you should be able to change the voice, go to tools>settings>language and then change the voice to the one you downloaded

Lost voice on my garmin 750

Look under settings>language>voice. Select American English and it will work again. The same thing happened to me this week on my new Garmin 750 and I took a couple of days to figure it out. Hope this helps.

Lost the voice on my garmin nuvi

Go to settings, you will see blank box for language settings (where you tell it to use TTS or normal or other spoken language etc.) select language of your choice again. You will be all set. Nuvi tends to loose its voice settings sometimes.

Garmin nuvi 360

I had the same problem. Sometimes the voice would start to speak and then cut off after a few sounds. I was still under warranty so Garmin replaced it (I think with a rebuilt I am now having display problems with).

Before I contacted them I tried software updates and resets and changing voices--alas it had to go back to the factory.
