Voices "None Found" HELP!

My dad deleted the voices on his Garmin Nuvi 200 and we can't find a place to restore them. When we go into the options it says Voices, " None Found."

Any ideas how to restore them? Thanks!

You need to obtain a USB data cable to connect your Nuvi to a PC. Go to Garmin's website at and download their webupdater program. Install it on your PC and connect your Nuvi to your PC. It will allow you to download the missing voices.

I have a Garmin 200 and it no longer talks to me?

From the main menu tap tools, settings, language, and then select a language for the voice. If theres none to select from then you need to download garmin webupdater from

Connect your unit to your PC, install and run garmin webupdater and follow the onscreen prompts, on the additional updates page scroll down and find the voices with "TTS" as well as the regular ones and install them to your unit. Then go back into your units language settings and select a voice.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 750 gps. Purchased online on Amazone in 2008 for my 81 year old dad. He loves it. But he just told me tonight the woman's voice has not been working for a long long time. Device beeps...

1. Check that the volume has not been muted by touching the speaker symbol on the main screen. If mute is ticked touch it to unselect it.

2. If this is not the problem on the main screen touch tools, then settings, then language and select a voice. If you didn't download extra voices there's probably only one there.

3. If that doesn't solve the problem the voice file may be corrupted and need to be downloaded again. Connect your Satnav to the pc. Go to and download the latest version of webupdater. After the software is updated click next, Tick the voices you want to select them, Tick next and then Finish. This will download the voices selected to your Satnav. You will have to repeat para 2 above to select the voice you want. You can experiment and try out different voices to see which you prefer.

Can not get voice comands

if you mean like "turn right on Madison" as an example, you must have the tts voice selected ...that is the computer generated will not work with human voices....

go in the system setting and go to the voice option, and see if you have any TTS voices...if not, they may have been deleted..if so, go HERE and download the web updater and 1st see if there are any updates, then after that it will give you an option to add voices...just select one or some that are TTS...after there loaded to your gps, go back in the voice option and change it to one of the TTS voices.

if you mean you have no sound at all, post back and i will help you further.

Voice not found on my Nuvi 255w. How can I restore it?

You need to connect a data cable between your Nuvi and PC. Go to and download their WEBUPDATER program and run it. It will scan your Nuvi and tell you if there are any updates available and you'll be able to download all the voices you want.

1) The voice stopped working. Why? 2) I can't use the Garmin while it's charging in the car. Why ?

I have the same unit, it did the same to me, I went to garmin site, found the voices to download, enter download all voices, the system did it job, and I began using the voices again. Just remember, in order to hears streets & turns, you must use the TTS (*Test To Speech) voices.
Hope this will help.

Delete all the vehicles and voices that you don't use as well.

Btw, beware that the "City Navigator Lower 49 States+PR NT 2010.10, Deluxe, Apr 09" for nuvi 200/205 is BUSTED, it probably will not work (I just spent 2+hrs on the phone with garmin tech support to fix it.) Search these forums for "nuvi 205 no detailed maps" for more details.

Garmin Nuvi 260 - how to activate text to speech

Question: How do I change the Voice Language setting on my nuvi 2xx?
--> Answer: All of the Garmin® automotive GPS units that speak street names are also loaded with basic voice prompts (example: Turn Right in 500 feet) as well as Text-to-Speech (TTS) voices that speak street names. If one of the basic types of voice prompts has been selected, the voice prompts will not speak street names. In order to change this setting on the nüvi® 2xx series, follow these steps:
  1. In the Main Menu, touch Tools (Wrench icon).
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Press the Down arrow in the bottom right corner.
  4. Select Language.
  5. The first line on this screen is the Voice language. Touch the Current Voice option for the GPS device listed to change the Voice.
  6. Select a Voice that is labeled TTS. These will speak street names. Options without the TTS label will say the distance until the next turn, but will not include the street name.
  7. Select OK. The Voice has now been changed.
The device should now speak street names. This is tghe solution that I found on the Garmin site. It worked for my device. Hope this is helpful. solution = solution1description.innerHTML; Last modified on: 04/14/2008
