    I Have the same problem with my Nuvi 360, I know that the problem is the internal speaker, Where can I buy it? regards, Diego (diegotam@gmail.com)

  • rayphau Apr 08, 2009

    My Nuvi 205W is able to "Talk", with correct turn by turn instruction, but not able to translate the distance correctly, for example, it read "2 meter 17 kilometer", 8 ft, and so on even if we set the unit to meter. is it software problem or which file should I replace?



    many thanks

Is the sound muted? and I assume you have the volume set at maximum?

On the older Nuvi's you could try plugging in a set of headphones to see if you could hear audio. If you could, then that verified that the internal speaker is bad. On the Nuvi 2xx series there is no head phone jack so there is not an easy way to confirm if the speaker is bad.

From my experience is repairing Nuvi's I would say that your internal speaker is bad, provided all of the settings are correct. The speaker will need to be replaced. I can help you with that.

Best wishes,

I have a garmin 350 NA that has lost the voice on it. How can I get it back??


First press the speaker symbol and check that the volume is not down fully or that the mute box is not ticked. If it is press the mute box to untick it or increase the volume. Otherwise follow the instructions below.

1. Press Tools, then press Settings (or Locale on some models), then press Language. You will see a bar for Voice. Press Voice and select a different voice. If this doesn't solve the problem it's most likely because the voice file has become corrupted. To replace the corrupted file.
2. Download webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 and connect your satnav to your computer. Install webupdater and your satnav will look for updates. After it's finished it will give you an option to download voices. Click the ones you want and press next. The voices selected will be downloaded to your satnav.
When you have removed the satnav from the computer you'll need to select a voice again as described in para 1 above.

Battery compartment


Hi

On the 205W the serial no. is on the bottom of the unit, inside an outlined box. Make sure to remove the mounting bracket to be able to view it.

You do not go into the battery compartment.

If this answer has helped please do leave a helpful vote for it.

Thanks.
