Hi,
Some TomTom one speakers are known to have faults develop. Usually the speaker goes ipen circuit resulting in no sound at all. other can simply go distorted. It might be that your speaker has gone faulty. ( some scrap laptops might yield a suitable replacement speaker as they often will fit )

Another fault common on TomTom one ( early version ) is the extension speaker socket on the base of the TomTom becomes dirty or it can be stressed if you have ever had need to use the socket. The socket also acts as a switch to turn the internal speaker off when the socket is uses. It is very easy to end up with a bent contact on this socket so that even when any plug is removed the switch contact on the socket remains open. This results in sound being cut-off to the internal speaker or the sound might become low or distorted.

I would recommend you check out both these possibilities . Please let me know via this forum how you get on.

Good luck.

Can't hear it anymore when it should be telling you the directions the volume has went down so low and can't turn it up??? It only has a on or off .


There could be 2 reasons: 1: Sound is muted. Solution: Tap on the screen. Tap change preferences. If you see a green square with "Turn on sound", tap on it. If it is a red Turn off sound, try the next solution.
2. Sound is kept very low. Solution: There is a volume slider bar. Generally it should be on the bottom left hand corner. If you touch the area where "no route planned " is shown on the screen, the volume bar pops out. Rub/Slide your finger slowly from left to right. This will increase the volume.

My garmin nuvi 205 has no sound with volume @ 100%


Whenever these devices start acting up, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205. Also, use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device.

I hope that helps.

Why can I not hear the volume very loud on my Nuvi 760?


Well mine, (760) has a external plug to be use with ears plug, the cord should be long enough and it should not interfere with drivings conditions, but it sound real good loud and clear. The other solution could be the matching on the fm radio station, it could be auto or manual, but they have to match in order to hear propperly.
Hope this will help

Volume


I had a similar problem when I first connected my Cardo Scala Rider set to the helmet. First off, make sure that the volume on the Zumo is set to 100% for BOTH guidance and mp3 functions. Then click the upper control on the Cado Scala to maximize the volume of the headset. When you've accomplished those two electronic hurdles, adjust the location of the speakers in the helmet - if location of the speakers is not optimized nothing you do with the electronics will have much effect. I typically run the mp3 volume at 20% and the GPS at 50% with the headset volume at halfway. My Cardo Scala unit is a Teamset and I sometimes have problems hearing my rider scream that I'm going too fast. I haven't bothered yet to tell her to keep the microphone closer to her lips.

Have you checked the volume (wrench/volume mp3/audible 100%) Does the garmin detect the phone properly?
Have you checked the firmware thru http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

After you update delete the connection between garmin and phone and pair them again.
