Thank you for contacting Garmin International. If you are not receiving verbal instructions from your unit there are a few things we can try to correct it. One would be to make sure there is a voice selected. You can check by pressing Tools, Settings, and Languages. If the box associated with the voice language is empty, press it and select a voice with a proper name after it and hit OK. Then you'll be fine. If it says "No Voice Found" please download and run Webupdater and you will be able to download the voices again. I hope this helps and here are some instructions for downloading that program.


These instructions follow what I experienced getting the update file. Based on computer settings you may have a slightly different experience.


From Ed. I got mine to work by completely depleteing the battery. It talked again during the process.

HTC smart F.3188 not responding to factory reset.


Hold on talk and cancel buttons and push reset button once. Hold on talk and cancel buttons until you receive message on the screen saying, 'this will delete all your data in the set except the rom', then push center button to hardrest. Before resetting keep a bcakup of your data if there is an important data in your set.

HELP!! my nokia 6500s wont allow me to get on the menu screen,, whenever it starts up,, it shows Push to talk,, and it wont go away,, ive restarted it several times,, it still shows push to talk,, push to...


Try doing this. Turn off the unit, remove the battery, press and hold the power button (while battery is out), then put the battery back and turn it back on. If that doesn't work, just repeat the steps including removing the Sim Card. Or turn on the unit without a Sim Card.

You can also try using reset codes but that would reset EveryThing back to default settings which might include losing the settings of your provider which is not recommended. But the initial step is safe to use.

Hope this helps.

I have only used it maybe 10 times. Suddenly it sounded like someone talking and it stopped working. I know nothing about it and of course lost all papers.I think i pushed something wrong :(


There may be a reset button on the back of the device under the flip up antenna. try pushing the reset button and it should reset the device back to the original factory settings. Sounds like your device froze up or got muted. If you still have no luck, call Garmin at:1-800-800-1020 . I hope the reset works for you, if not maybe Garmin could give you a few suggestions. Good Luck!

Hang up


Button on side is not for answering calls.
PTT or Push To Talk allows you to use your mobile like a walkie talkie. It is dependant on your network operator running the service.

Quote from Pocket lint:
To use the function you must first create a group or individual in your phone menu and send an SMS invitation to those you wish to join. Once your contacts are set up, your phone shows which members have their handsets switched on with push-to-talk enabled, in the same way that instant messaging works online. By pushing a single button on the handset, you are connected with one person or with your group. There is no need to dial numbers, nor do the recipients need to answer calls. You simply push a button and talk. As with a walkie-talkie, anyone in the group hears you almost instantaneously. The talking is one way with only one person able to speak at a time. Unlike walkie-talkies, which are infuriatingly dependent on distance, push-to-talk has no such limitations.

You should be able to disable PTT in the Nokia menu, which is best if your network doesn't support it. Plus you won't keep cutting off calls.

My garmin nuvi 205 quit talking. volume is at 100% and not on mute. beep sounds work but when in route i have no next turn or direction sounds. screen map does work.


I have a 750. I went to settings, language and restored the defaults. The Voice was blank when I went to that screen. I am not sure if the 205 has the language setup or not, but this should solve other Garmin problems. And as a bonus, if you want to solve the problems with the US, Fire Congress check out http://FireCongress.org
