Garmin has no sound


Probably a defective speaker. Does the sound work through the headphone jack? If so, it's a broken speaker. If they don't give you a new one under warranty, are third party Garmin repair services that will fix it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI GPS repair guide,so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult.

I am having the same problem with a twist, sound works from the fm and headphone but only from the right side no left audio. I have the 760 and it only has one speaker and my guess it that it gets its feed...


If you use the headphone jack a lot and your missing the audio from the speaker and one channel from the headphone jack, then it's possible that some of the headphone jack connections have broken off of the PC board. The audio goes to the speaker through the headphone jack.

Please see this link for more info and read the section about the headphone jack.

Garmin 350, speaker dies after using earphone jack.


Please don't try this yourself... please see this link for assistance.
In many cases, a soldering iron won't help you. Especially if the headphone jack has broken away from the board as there is nothing to solder to.

I have garmin vuvi 350 , its voice has stopped . i have checked all posssible setting, but no result. i am living in Mississauga, On canada. i need immediate help


Do you have other sound like the touch screen beeps? MP3 audio ok? If no, try using a set of headphones in the headphone jack. If you hear sound ok there, then your internal speaker is bad.

Garmin GPS - suddenly has no sound - it just cut out


1. Are you sure the volume setting is all the way up?

2. Are you sure the sound isn't muted?

3. Have you tried a pair of headphones in the headphone jack? If the headphones have sound, your internal speaker is bad. If you don't feel like sending it back for repair, you can purchase a FM transmitter like those used on IPODs and CDplayers and plug into your GPS's headphone jack and play the audio through your car's FM stereo.

4. If you don't hear sound from the headphone jack, most likely the audio output section is defective and you'll need to send it back to Garmin to be repaired.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Copying files to the Garmin nuvi 610T


The pin should not be necessary if you are operating your garmin in your 'secure location' that you established when you enabled the garmin lock feature.

How are you accessing the device?

Voice directions not working.


First, ensure that you are using the unmuted internal speakers by pressing the power button twice while the unit is on.

Do you hear beeps (button tones) through the speakers?

These are a couple things to try:

1. Change the voice from English TTS (JILL) to English TTS (JAKE) - This will demonstrate whether the voice database has been corrupted.

2. Tap the power button twice while the unit is on to switch back to fm transmitter and attempt to use your radio to tune the sound. If you succeed here, you may indeed have a problem with your internal speaker. A return of the product may be necessary.
