Hi, my 760 had the same problem, and a stutter when speaking street names. I fixed both by upgrading the software to v4.60 using the Garmin Webupdater.

Lost voice


You may benefit by going to Garmin's WebUpdater page to download & install updated firmware on your nuvi 760. It's free and all you need is a computer with a USB port and a USB cable that fits your nuvi 760 (it was included the box) The directions are clear and it is very easy to do.

Good luck!

Voice direction is gone on my nuvi 760. What is the solution.


You probably lost all your TTS voice files or your speaker is not working. Connect Garmin to PC and run WebUpdater from Garmin and it will put everything back in.

Voice prompt and more


First go to Menu > Tools > Settings > Language (icon is red lips)

You will see three settings: Voice, Text, Keyboard.

The voice setting may be blank. That just happens. Touch and be sure to select "American English, Jill or Jack, TTS. The "TTS" is very important in that it causes street names to be spoken. Example: "Turn left on Main Street." If you choose a Voice Language that is not TTS, as are the first selections shown, you will get commands without street names. Example: "Turn left." but it won't say the street name. After you have done this the 760, and maybe other models of the nuvi, will lose this setting on a random basis. Everytime it goes silent you have to redo the process of setting up the voice language. Who knows why?

Garmin 760 not in English


Hi, from the "Where To" / "View Map" screen, select the tools (spanner icon), then Settings (spanner icon again) then Language (Mouth icon).
There should be 3 options, the lower left is the Keyboard; select this then scroll to British English. The upper icon is the Voice, choose a suitable one (if it says (TTS) it will read out street names as ir gives directions), the top-right option is Text, again choose British English.

Go back into your tools and settings and re select the voice of american jack and see if it comes back on.
I lost the voice 2 days ago while on a trip from tenn. to florida and this fixed it. we never shut off the voice but somehow while using bluetooth or FM trans it shut off voice transmiting.

Garmin 760 - No Voice Directions


Check The system settings, I had to download the newest version of the audio software for the voice to work. The software vanished once and I had to re-download it using the web updater.

Hopefully it will stick around this time.

When I load the new software the voice works.
