Volume made a couple of odd noises and then stopped speaking

We were traveling and the garmin, Jack, just made a couple of odd noises and then he just stopped speaking. We tried resetting as well as re starting, changing voice to Jill but no sound. The screen works fine but no verbal directions. Help We also checked the volume level and they are at 100%

Plug a headset into the audio jack and see if there's audio when Jack or Jill speak. If no audio there, you've got a defective audio amplifier stage. If audio can be heard through a headset, you've got a blown speaker.
You'll need to send it back to Garmin for repair in either case, though in the case of a blown speaker, you <could> use external Ipod-type speakers, if you didn't mind the kludge.

No voice


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.

Good luck!

My garmin 205w doesn't tell me verbally names of streets and exits. My brother has the same exact model and his does this function.


Some of the voices on Garmin satnavs speak streetnames and others don't. Press Tools, then press settings, then press Language. You'll see the Voice name. Press it and select a different one. (American English Jack or Samantha TTS will speak the streetnames). Press OK and it should then be ok.

I can not get my garmin 2620 to talk to me


In order for the GARMIN 2620 to speak to you it must have the speaker attached. The speaker is included on the car adapter plug. Without this special 12V car adapter you will not be able to get sound from the Garmin 2620. If you have the adapter with the built in speaker, make sure the volume isn't muted, and is turned up by pressing and holding the Speak key or adjusting the volume on your 2620 remote.

Garmin 265 W won't speak street names


Hi,

Below is the procedures for setting the languages...

Touch tools > settings > language > voice.

Voice- changes the language for voice promts.
Languages noted with a persons name are (tts)
text to speak voices.

which have an extensive vocabulary and pronounce
the street names as you approach turns.

The pre-recoreded voices (those without a persons name)
have a limited vocabulary and (do not speak names of locations or streets)

Text language- change all on-screen text to the selected language,
changing the text language does not change the language of user entered data
or map data, such as street names.

Keyboard- select the keyboard for your language,
you can also change the keyboard language mode from any keyboard
by touching the mode button

Adjusting the volume levels
From the "menu" page touch "volume"
to adjust the volume.

To adjust the volume levels for the media player
and the navigation prompts,
please click.

Tools > settings > Volume > Restore
Restore will, restore to origional volume levels.
