I don't know if this will help any, but when I updated my recently purchased tomtom go 720 with the newest app (8.3) and the new voices, map, etc...the voice feature completely stopped working on my unit. Everything else was working fine except the voice. However, I had installed an 8 gig sd card into my tomtom and put all the updates on the sd card because I was running low on the internal memory. Bythe way, only the voice instructions were not working..it would still play mp3's through the internal speaker, so I knew it must be a software problem. After several days with no voice instructions, I then proceeded to re-format the sd card and start all over, as the problem appeared to be a software issue. After re-formatting the sd card, I removed it and installed the back-up file from my tomtom before I did the first update. This time, I deleted a couple of the voices in the update package, so that I would have enough room to install the updates to the internal memory. "Bam" now everything is working perfectly again. I believe for me...the tomtom was having trouble communicating with the new application that I had previously installed on the sd card. I hope this may help someone.

SOURCE: It just stopped talking. No voice directions, on

Hit the menu buttom, go to settings, then go to volume and see if it is muted. Sounds like the mute or volume down button got inadvertantly hit and turned down or muted. If this does not work, turn the unit over and look under the fold up antenna for a reset button. Depress this button until the unit restarts and should reset the unit back to factory default settings and get you on your way. Good luck!!! If these don't help you, call the garmin support number at :1-800-800-1020. Hope this helps!

Nuvi stopped talking. where is the mute button located on the unit?


If you are no longer getting the voice guidance from your gps, then you need to check if the volume is on the highest or lowest. There is no mute button on the gps, it is when the volume is at the lowest it seems muted. Ensure the volume is turned up by adjusting the scroll whell that is by the right hand side of the unit.
If that does not help, then you check the language settings in the unit. Verify that the voice is enabled, by following these steps:
  1. from the 'where to? view map' screen, touch 'tools',
  2. Touch 'language',
  3. Next to 'voice language' you will see 'jill' listed in the blue box on the right (if so the unit should be ready to use)
  4. If you do not see a 'voice' listed in the blue box, touch on the blue box,
  5. Select 'voice',
  6. Touch 'ok' at the bottom,
That should do the work for you.

Voice recognition on motorola t5500


That means that it will Transmit, like pressing the "Talk" button, BUT ONLY when it hears the "Voice" it was "Trained" on. So this is so No-one else could use this unit. With this method. You "Identify" yourself, and after that every-time you speak, the Transmitter is keyed, and the channel is opened and the voice sent, when you stop talking,it goes back to receive, again. Some are less sophisticated, in that they are really a "Sound Switch" and when the unit "Hears" a "Voice" it, switches OFF receive, and ON the transmitter, and Transmits the audio out.

How can i change my voice answering on the phone


Hello, Alex.

Press and hold [GREETING] until “Record greeting after the beep” is
heard.

After the long beep, talk clearly, about 20 cm (8 inches) away from
the MIC (microphone). • The elapsed recording time is displayed. • If you record for over 2 minutes, the unit will stop recording.

When finished, press [GREETING] or [STOP]. • The unit will play back the recorded message.

Hope this helps.

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.

Maestro 4040 code


RE: Voice Command...

I havent seen the TigerDirect ad up but:

1: Voice COMMAND is a $99 OPTION= It allows YOU to speak to the unit- (Speak commands TO THE UNIT, EG= select options)

The unit does NOT come with this feature enabled....

That said the unit DOES COME with SayWhere Text to Speech , that talks to YOU. (Hear when to make each turn, including the street name)

So to recap= 4040 talks to YOU, but to command the unit (You talk to the unit and it perform a function) it costs another $99


BTW: I just got my 4040 today
Firmware 2.36, Maps #27 (3rd Q-2006)

While RUNNING a simulation of a route- IF I click on a POI and ask the unit to figure a route to the newly selected POI... the unit stops responding- then crashes, then reboots.


Not happy--- Sounds like to me the CPU can't handle the extra loading...

Tomtom 1 stopped talking


Check in preferences > Change Voice to make sure that a voice is selected. If it is, it probably corrupted. Pick a new voice. If none of the other voices work, plug your TomTom into your computer and boot up TomTom HOME and reinstall the voices. If after that they still don't work, contact TomTom support and ask them for advice. They will probably have you send it in for repair on broken speakers.

Please rate, Thank you!
