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.

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!

It just stopped talking. No voice directions, on


Hit the menu buttom, go to settings, then go to volume and see if it is muted. Sounds like the mute or volume down button got inadvertantly hit and turned down or muted. If this does not work, turn the unit over and look under the fold up antenna for a reset button. Depress this button until the unit restarts and should reset the unit back to factory default settings and get you on your way. Good luck!!! If these don't help you, call the garmin support number at :1-800-800-1020. Hope this helps!

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
