Question about Garmin Forerunner 405 Handheld GPS Receiver

1 Answer

My watch keeps beeping!

I can't figure out how to turn off sound. The watch goes nuts and alternates between different screens, when I'd just like it to stay on the miles/time/pace screen. While it's alternating, it beeps incessantly. Please help me turn off the sound AND/OR make it stay on one screen.

Sounds like you need to lock the bezel, because it is always active and will change even with accidental brushing against body or clothes. Choose the screen yuo want to display and press the two buttons on the side at the same time and your bezel should lock. A brief message will appear onscreen. Do the same to unlock. With the bezel locked you can start and stop the session timer as usual using the start/stop button at top right.

Nuvi 2555mt lost voice


First, do you hear beeps when you press a selection on the screen? If yes, then your speaker is OK and the audio circuits are OK in the unit. Make sure that you have a voice selected in the voice menu. Some units have an audio mixer screen and provide different volume settings for navigation (voice) and system (beeps). maybe the volume for the voice (navigation) is set to off. If you don't hear any beeps when you touch the screen AND you don't hear a voice, make sure that the sound isn't set to be muted. If the sound isn't muted, you may have a defective speaker.

Garmin forerunner 305 keeps turning off


The problem is that the connectors inside the garmin are not consistently touching. You need to open the unit and bend the little prongs on the screen side out a bit so that they touch the connectors on the other side of the unit when closed. I did this with my unit and it touch car of this.

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

Magellan 700 sound problem


1. Search for the file ENG_F.SND sound on google or yahoo or any search engine.

2. Connect RM 700 to PC, and create folder name SOUND_EU on RM 700.

3. Copy the ENG_F.SND to SOUND_EU folder.

4. Disconnect RM 700 from PC.

5. Turn on RM 700, and go to Option, configuration, language, and choose English.

6. RM 700 will load sound file and turn off.

7. Turn on RM 700, if it keeps showing the initial screen, then connect the RM 700 to PC, and DELETE the ENG_F.SND from SOUND_EU. It should be OK after you disconnect RM 700 from PC and turn it on again.

GOOD LUCK!
NOTES: My screen indeed locked at first as covered in the last step, so expect that to happen. Don't worry if you never get to do step 5 and 6. Connecting the USB, deleting the SND file and restarting it works and the sound is back even without the file there.

This only fixes the Female voice along with the beeps and clicks. The unit goes silent again if you select the male voice but switching back to the female fixed that. I assume "_F" in the file name must mean female.

Tom Tom 720 keeps jumping to main menu


Well I finally figured it out for those who might run across this problem.

It seems that when it got hot and expanded the grey bezel around the screen would touch the screen just enough to activate it. I gently pried the bezel up just a bit and it seems to have solved the problem.

The display still shows "AFIJDEN...." or something like that instead of the word "Exit" or "Entrance" when exiting or entering the freeway. Voice is fine though. Anyone got a fix for that?

Date keeps resetting after powerdown


It sounds as if there is a small internal battery - something like a watch battery that should be keeping the clock going - I couldn't confirm this online but this was common in gps systems. It shouldn't be too hard to get to, probably have to take the back off, but it should be easy to replace. Hope this helps, please post again if not :)
