I've had my tomtomone for about five months now and everything has been perfectly fine since then. However, all of a sudden the voice stopped working. There is no sound at all--however there is a noise like the speaker turns on, just nothing happens. It's really frustrating because I am very confused when trying to follow directions. Any help?

Go to Garmin's Web Updater webpage and download and install the program. Follow the directions to update the firmware and voices. TTS types are "Text To Speech" and will read and speak street names, like "Turn right to Elm Street, etc. Those that lack TTS are standard voices - they will only say "Turn right in 100 feet" in the same place on the road.
Go though the device menu settings and make sure that you have a voice selected "Jack US English" or "Jill US English" are the typical TTS voices chosen for US English speaking drivers.
Hello! My pos just did this today after I got in a hot car (had windows up for security). Symptoms: Briefly displayed the PIONEER default splash screen, LED lighting was the default ... light/bright pink (to match pioneer?).
Then screen goes black, then backlight gets fully dimmed and LED dims to darks white (R,01G,01B01)
Wouldn't really respond to anything... but plays CD in background.
I had a brainstorm while sitting in my car at ACC (ignition) and reading the lame online TS guide. I turned my car to ON and put the gear shift in REVERSE.
The screen flashed to the password, and flashed black again....
Some how the system stablelized after some time and I resurrected it*.
* After tinkering I found ALL settings except the NAV data/settings had been lost. In addition I believe corruption has occured in the memory holding the voice data. TTS... that phone thing voice command wont display when i press down on the Multi-nav? dial. Also system crashes when I try to access language settings. Sometimes a Windows CE error message bled thru reporting a fatal application error. Illegal operation request...
Hope this helps. I think my POS is going back to cartoys before my 30days is up. Pity
Power up your tomtom. On the Map screen . Tap the screen , then select " change preferences " , Then scroll right until you see the " Lips " icon , Select the "Lips" under it , it says " select voice " . once in there , you can scroll left or right allowing you to choose the voice / language you require . Hope this helps.
I have the same problem with my Nuvi 350. It's only about 2 months old and the sound went. I turned it on the other day to use it and the sound did not sound right, it sounded like the speaker was blown. I turned it off and turned it back on and that was it, the sound was gone. I did everything possible and can't get the sound to come back. I called Garmin and now I have to send it in for repair. I looked around the web and noticed that Garmins have big issues with the sound going on the units. I hope they fix that issue.
