Question about Garmin StreetPilot i5 GPS Receiver
Just last week I found that the audible sounds on my i5 have stopped working. I tried reseting the unit and changing the batteries. At one point there was some sound but is was to garbled to understand. I am at a loss as to what I could do to fix this problem, if it is even fixable. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Frank

Apologies, There is two voices on that machine ( apparently, LOL) Is it both that are playing up? ( Direction & Street name ) It seems more common that the street name voice gets garbled. I guess you are out of warranty. There seems to be a few of these getting returned and replaced so it may be worth emailing the manufacturer and see if they will offer to replace it anyway. The sound output I mentioned was an external speaker socket in a post I can't find back. That is what I was confused about.

I would have a look at the earphone socket. There is a small switch inside the socket that is designed to mute the built in sound when the headset is in. If there is some dust or damage in the socket, or the jack is bent, you will have sound problems. Try blowing the socket out, and rotating the headphone jack in the socket to determine if that is what it is. Depending on your confidence, you could attempt to dismantle it yourself and repair/replace the socket.
