I would try updating the unit by connecting to to a usb port on your computer and then downloading Garmin Communicator. If that does not help then try contacting Garmin. I will attach a link to Garmin customer support. thanks for using FixYa

I have a garmin gps 260. It is only 5 months old. I have owned 2 other gramins, so I am familiar with them. My problem is that sometimes when I turn it on, it does not speak the directions, only shows...


I would do a Firmware update first...

To do that you must connect your Nuvi to you computer using the USB connector..

Go to www.Garmin.com

Update the firmware there

Next I would start with the Language

Go to Tools ......Settings.....Language check that the language chosen is one with ( TTS ) ending.

The TTS are the voice

Sudden unreliable directions being given


I recommend you replace the firmware / system software of your Garmin Nuvi 200W.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Volume made a couple of odd noises and then stopped speaking


Plug a headset into the audio jack and see if there's audio when Jack or Jill speak. If no audio there, you've got a defective audio amplifier stage. If audio can be heard through a headset, you've got a blown speaker.
You'll need to send it back to Garmin for repair in either case, though in the case of a blown speaker, you <could> use external Ipod-type speakers, if you didn't mind the kludge.

Late response on turn-by-turn voice directions- garmin nuvi 760


Hi, my 760 had the same problem, and a stutter when speaking street names. I fixed both by upgrading the software to v4.60 using the Garmin Webupdater.

Direction stuck


When you make a trip and have not fully completed the trip the garmin will ask you if it is a via or a new destination....so it's a new destination...it will trow away the previous not completed trip.

He would not have nothing to say if you did not set a "where to"

Few words , you mean "turn right in 500 ft" . Its normal your unit type has only Voice prompts and not TTS (SPEAK STREETS NAMES) .

For your MP3 palyer it should work. Did you play with something in the setup.

Make sure you have the latest update 5.20.
Please use the GARMIN WEB UPDATER for best result.
