NUVI 610 What is right with it is the question???? Since I bought it a could not get the voice-promp going, it is so slow during navigation, I drive at 60km an hour and it is drawing maps since yesterday!!!

When driving no voice, check sound is fine

If you're just driving around and you haven't selected navigate to a destination there will not be a voice. Try navigating to a destination as that is where you will get voice navigation suggestions or commands. If you don't get a voice then, perhaps you need to download a voice or two. This can be done using the Garmin Express software and a computer connected to your Nuvi using the USB cord.

Garmin nuvi 610 memory full

You can attach the unit to your computer and then delete some information like extra voices, languages, help files, pictures, etc. You can also delete from the gps menu old locations and favorites.
Make sure you make a copy of everything first before you delete anything.
Thanks for using FixYa

Normally on front of screen there is promp for voice to mute or un mute, but if you don't see that go to settings and look for voice controls. But like I said is normally on screen right side area looks like a circle kind of.

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.

My Garmin Nuvi 350 sound not working

I had this problem with the 760. Solved by going to settings>language and discovering I had no choice for "voice". I pressed that selection and picked american english and my problem was solved. Garmin support said sometimes the program gets corrupted and that choice needs to be made again.
