Question about Garmin Nuvi 760 Handheld GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Voice prompt and more

We can't get the voice prompt to say a word and also the pictures that you show of the 760 nuvi garmen series doesn't look ANYTHING like our screen. Therefore, we can't apply your directions to working our system.

We're thinking of sending it back because of these 2 issues, but will wait a day to hear back from you. (P.S.-also you had to send us another cigarette lighter adapter because the one that came with the system was busted.
What gives?
Thank you for your immediate response to an old hormonal woman!

    Voice from the navigational mode is not operational. However the blue tooth voice is fine.

    I lose the voice, whenever I turn it off. The voice prompt says: NO VOICE FOUND. Can someone help?

    I go thru the steps above except when it gets to voice, it displays none found..........this randomly happens and I rely heavily on my GPS for work! Please help! Oh, I bought it at Circuit City, so I am out of luck there!

    After having the 760 for three months, it no longer announces any street names.

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?

I bought a NUVI 760 in December and have used if for over 5000 miles of travel. The voice prompt goes off randomly and on mine it has been related to the language section of the menu. If you click language, you'll either find a list of languages or you get a message "None Found". When I get the none found, I remove the NUVI from the car power (ie it is now on its own battery power) and click the restore functions. I then turn it off and then turn it back on again (still on its own power not car power). I then go back to language and when I click it I find the assortment of languages. This action does not seem to work it the unit is continuously powered but seems to reboot itself with the language module if it is removed from the car power. I finally got tired ot doing this and took it back to COSTCO. I'll wait until Garmin fixes this problem before getting another one.

My Garmin Nuvi 760 GPS announces the turns but not the street names.


1. This is because some voice files are only basic but others speak the street names. To change the voice file press TOOLS, then press SETTINGS then press LANGUAGE. Press the VOICE and change it to a different one.
2. You can download extra voices, if you need to, by connecting your satnav to your computer, Download webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 and install it. When it's installed it'll look for software updates. After this it'll give you the option to download extra voices. Select the ones you want and press next. Follow the prompts and they will be downloaded to your satnav. When you have disconnected your satnav from the computer you can select a new voice as described in para 1 above.

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.

Late response on turn-by-turn voice directions- garmin nuvi 760


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.

There is no sound on my nuvi 760


I had the same problem! When I went under Settings/Language/ there was no voice that the machine could find! It is. I think a firmware bug or something like that.   You have to reset the 760 by holding the on-off switch on the left position for more than 8 seconds. After that you will have to choose the Language of your choice again. Let us see what will the next software upgrade brings us as a better solution.

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.
