Under tools/settings/language check to make sure you have the correct voices chosen. When the name has "TTS" after it, it means Text To Speech. Make sure one of those are selected

No voice prompts on garmin nuvi 205

1. Press the Volume (Speaker symbol) in the bottom right corner and check that the mute box is not ticked. If it is press it and it will be ok. Also check that the volume isn't fully down.
If that doesn't solve the problem it may be because the voice file is not selected or has become corrupted.

2. Press Tools, then press Settings (or Locale on some models), then press Language. You will see a bar for Voice. Press Voice and select a different voice. If this doesn't solve the problem it's most likely because the voice file has become corrupted. To replace the corrupted file.
3. Download webupdater from and connect your satnav to your computer. Install webupdater and your satnav will look for updates. After it's finished it will give you an option to download voices. Click the ones you want and press next. The voices selected will be downloaded to your satnav.
When you have removed the satnav from the computer you'll need to select a voice again as described in para 2 above.

No voice. Volume bar shows 100% the bar is not

I assume you checked that the mute box is not ticked. If not check it at the same place as the volume. The most likely cause is that there is no voice selected. To select a voice, press Tools, then Settings, then Language, and then Voice. If a voice is not ticked then press one to select it.

It's possible that the voice files have been corrupted and will not work. IF this is the case connect your satnav to your computer and it should automatically download the latest version of webupdater from the garmin website. When updated you will have the option to download voices. Select the ones you want and follow the prompts and they will be downloaded to your satnav. You may then have to to repeat the voice selection process described in paragraph 1 above

I have a Garmin Nuvi 750 gps. Purchased online on Amazone in 2008 for my 81 year old dad. He loves it. But he just told me tonight the woman's voice has not been working for a long long time. Device beeps...

1. Check that the volume has not been muted by touching the speaker symbol on the main screen. If mute is ticked touch it to unselect it.

2. If this is not the problem on the main screen touch tools, then settings, then language and select a voice. If you didn't download extra voices there's probably only one there.

3. If that doesn't solve the problem the voice file may be corrupted and need to be downloaded again. Connect your Satnav to the pc. Go to and download the latest version of webupdater. After the software is updated click next, Tick the voices you want to select them, Tick next and then Finish. This will download the voices selected to your Satnav. You will have to repeat para 2 above to select the voice you want. You can experiment and try out different voices to see which you prefer.

Why did the voice prompts disappear

Your voice may need to be reselected. I have seen this happen before. I assume you can hear tones when you press the buttons.

Go to your Tools menu by clicking on the wrench icon. Next go into "Language". Choose voice and make sure you have at least one voice selected. If No voices are listed you can reload them through Garmins website.

No voice prompts on my new nuvi 750- volume level not muted.

I had the same problem after I had my Nuvi 750 for a few months.  The voice just stopped.  I called Garmin and they replaced it under warranty.

No voice prompts on my new nuvi 750- volume level not muted.

This will work--go to Tools, Settings, Language and then select a Language that has TTS following it--this is the text to speech choice. Choose English TTS Jill if you like to hear the woman.
