    Bought the unit from Sam's Club last Aug. Didn't use it until our holiday this Feb. Voice stopped working. Sams Club was nice enough to exchange for another head. Worked for the first couple of times and now sometimes you have voice and sometimes you don't. Garmin needs to come up with a fix with this many people having problems...Any solutions?

This will work--go to Tools, Settings, Language and then select a Language that has TTS following it--this is the text to speech choice. Choose English TTS Jill if you like to hear the woman.

The voice is just not working, all else is fine, no, the mute is not on...??


Do you have the unit set to internal speaker or FM Transmitter? Go to the Volume section from the menu, FM Trans, disable FM Transmitter.

1 Answer

Everything works fine on the unit no problem until


3. If your Nuvi has a FM transmitter, is it selected to "FM" or "Speaker"? The "FM" setting will mute the internal speaker. Setting it to "Speaker" will send sound to the speaker.

if this side of it works then the FM transmitter is faulty

Check that the sound has not been MUTED

plug the earphone into the socket to see if any sound is heard. The socket is also a switch that takes sound from internal speaker to ephone and reverse.
If no sound is hear in either FM or normal mode your unit is faulty and needs repair

I need to know how to turn it on...i don't know if its broken or what...cuz i put in new batteries and it won't trun on


1. Open the battery cover on your TuneCast II Mobile FM Transmitter. Install the included AAA batteries and
replace the battery cover.
2. Plug the 3.5mm connector into your iPod player or other portable music device.
3. The AUTO ON feature will power on the FM Transmitter when the unit detects an input signal. Your FM
Transmitter’s “AUTO ON/OFF” feature uses your audio player’s volume level to automatically power on and
off.
For best results, keep your player set at a medium volume level. NOTE: Setting your device volume very
low may cause the FM Transmitter to turn off, even if the audio player is on.
You can also press and hold
both and buttons simultaneously for two seconds to turn on the unit. To turn off the unit, press
and hold both buttons simultaneously again for two seconds.
