The internal audio amplifier is defective. If you don't want to send it back to garmin and pay their flat rate of $175.00 for repair (I didn't ) then by all means do so. If not then go to Radio Shack and purchase a battery operated amplified speaker. It is small and plugs easily into the side of your unit. Best of all it's only ($14.95) It works great because it bypasses the internal speaker and the sound id just as good if not better then the garmin speaker- You can control the volume by using the settings on your unit. The other alternitive is to purchase an FM transmitter. By pluging this into the unit it will transmit the voice into your car radio. the only problem is that you havwe to have it tunned to one station and won't be able to listen to your radio. Its sad that garmin does not repair thes units for a better price especially when they know there is problems with these speakers. I foe one will never buy another GArmin product and i tell everyone i know about this and advise them the same. Hopes this helps !!!

I have a toshiba equium tryin to set up microphone but no matter which option i use it wont recognize my voice


Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if your microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. Same applies for Internal mic.


That should be it.


To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.


You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.

HP dv6-1230 has locked the volume/mute button and i can't hear a sound from it


Right click on My Computer, go to properties, hardware tab, then select device manager, check if there is any Yellow colour highlighted thing is there. If so, then check what it is. If it is showing any thing related to sound re-install the sound driver. If nothing is in yellow, then select sound, video and game controller in the same screen Check if any thing is highlighted in yellow. If so re-install the sound driver. It will work. After all these is still problem is there, then re-install the operating system.
To confirm first, go to control panel, select sound and audio devices, if it shows no audio devices then there is a problem in the driver. If not problem in Operating system. If still problem is there plz do let me know.

Garmin 260w no sound just purchased


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} If you are not receiving any sound on your Nüvi 2xx the first thing to check is that the sound is not muted. To ensure that your units sound is not muted please perform the following:
  1. Turn the device on
  2. Press the Volume button on the ‘Where To?’, ‘View Map’ screen
  3. Ensure the Mute box is not ‘checked’
If the mute button is not ‘ticked’, you will need to change the voice to ensure that the preset voice is not faulty:
  1. Turn the device on
  2. Touch the Tool icon
  3. Touch Settings
  4. Touch Language

Once updated please allow the unit to reboot which will ensure the software successfully installs.

If after following all the above the final steps would be to perform a master reset:

Note: A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.

  1. Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
  4. Release the power button when the device powers on. After 5-10 seconds you will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
  5. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  6. Touch Yes

The device will automatically reset. Please follow the on screen prompts on the nuvi and when completed place your device in an area with a clear view of the sky until it acquires satellites.
