Go to Tools, settings, language, make sure your voice is in American English.

When mine stops voice commands, I have found this is usually the problem.

I have noticed this usually happens when my satallite radio (Sirrus) does an upgrade, as both are in operation at the same time.

Hope this helps

VOICE turn by turn has quit working. How do I restore voice.


Check that the mute box is not ticked.
1. Press Tools, Settings, Language and then press Voice. Select a new voice.
2. If that doesn't solve the problem it may be that the voice file has become corrupted. Connect the satnav to your computer. Download and install webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 When it's installed it will look for updates to your satnav software. After this it will give you the option to download voices. Select the ones you want and click next. The voice files will be downloaded to your satnav.

When you've disconnected the satnav from your computer select the voice you want as described in paragraph 1 above.

We just purchased a Garmin 1390. On our first trip, everything was fine and all at one the verbal instructions quit working.


First check that the volume has not been muted or the volume fully down. Touch the volume icon and see that the mute box is not ticked or the volume fully down. Touching the mute box will untick it.

The most likely problem is that either the voice has become unselected or the voice file is corrupted.

Press Tools, then Settings, then Language. The voice being used should be displayed. Touch Voice and select another which may solve the problem.

If this does not solve the problem the voice file is probably corrupted. To solve this it needs to be downloaded again. Connect your satnav to your computer and download webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 When it's installed you'll get an option to update your software. After this you'll have an option to download voices. Tick the ones you want and click next. When the voices have been downloaded and you have disconnected the satnav from the computer you'll need to go back and select the voice you want from Tools, Settings, Language as described above.

Can't get English on my Garmin nuvi 205. Happened when we tried to figure out why the sound quit working.


you should be able to go into settings menu to change the language for both voice and text. Click the wrench icon, then languages, you should be able to scroll up or down to find English.

Garmin wont talk


Thank you for contacting Garmin International. If you are not receiving verbal instructions from your unit there are a few things we can try to correct it. One would be to make sure there is a voice selected. You can check by pressing Tools, Settings, and Languages. If the box associated with the voice language is empty, press it and select a voice with a proper name after it and hit OK. Then you'll be fine. If it says "No Voice Found" please download and run Webupdater and you will be able to download the voices again. I hope this helps and here are some instructions for downloading that program.


These instructions follow what I experienced getting the update file. Based on computer settings you may have a slightly different experience.


From Ed. I got mine to work by completely depleteing the battery. It talked again during the process.

My garmin nuvi 205 quit talking. volume is at 100% and not on mute. beep sounds work but when in route i have no next turn or direction sounds. screen map does work.


I have a 750. I went to settings, language and restored the defaults. The Voice was blank when I went to that screen. I am not sure if the 205 has the language setup or not, but this should solve other Garmin problems. And as a bonus, if you want to solve the problems with the US, Fire Congress check out http://FireCongress.org

Voice quit working


I assume you have made sure the volume knob on the right side of the unit is adjusted all the way up. Have you also made sure the volume icon has the volume up? Does the unit make any sounds at all?
