Do you hear beeps when you press a function on the screen? If so, this rules out a blown speaker. If you don't hear any beeps, your speaker may be blown out.

Is the sound muted? Is the sound level set to 0? Check by pressing the speaker icon at the main menu.

More info on sound issues can be found here:

SOURCE: System Software Missing on Garmin Nuvi 255W

Hi,
Take a look at this site, http://www.garmin.be/missing.html Download and unzip the software, plug your garmin in the USB and start the updater.exe program. It gets you started again. Later on you can use the Webupdater to get possible newer software..
It worked for me and my Zumo550
Goodluck

SOURCE: voice not found on my Nuvi 255w. How can I restore it?

You need to connect a data cable between your Nuvi and PC. Go to Garmin.com and download their WEBUPDATER program and run it. It will scan your Nuvi and tell you if there are any updates available and you'll be able to download all the voices you want.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 255w freezes

mine would constantly cycle in the reboot. I had to clear the stored data by pressng and holding the lower right side of the screen and turning on the gps. once it boots up, it will ask if you want to clear the data memory (will not clear the actual maps). say yes, when it reboots, you will have to redo your personal settings as if it was new out of the box.

Garmin nuvi has no sound navigation working volume 100% mute not on


1. Pres Tools, then settings then language and select Voice. Try selecting a voice. This may solve your problem.

2 If not it's probably because the Voice file has become corrupted. Connect your Satnav to your pc and download the latest version of Webupdater from (http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp) and follow the instructions. When it's installed click next, tick the voices you want to download, press next and then finish.

3 You can change which voice you use then by following the advice in para 1 above.

My Garmin Nuvi 255W does not pronounce the words "right" and "left" clearly. Right sounds like "roft" and left sounds like "laft". Very confusing because they both sound pretty much the same. Is there...


You can try changing the voice to a differant one. For an example a british voice or a female voice might be clearer for you.

I'm assuming that the voice is actually fine but just not that clear to you. If the voice file has a problem you can do a hard reset and it will reload the files and that may clear it up at the cost of having to setup everything again.

Does the garmin nuvi 255W speak street names


I had the same problem with my nuvi 255w. Called tech support at Garmin and they told me one of the voices under Tools, Settings, Language, Voice has to end in a persons name. I had British English selected and it did not speak street names. When I selected Austrailian Englich - Karen, the street names all work fine.
