Question about Alpine NVE-N872A GPS Receiver

No sound from turn by turn navigation

I have had this system installed for a couple of months now. When it goes to try to give me turn by turn directions, no sound comes out. The int icon pops up and it mutes whatever i am listening to, but nothing comes out. I have a IVA-W200 with the PXA- H701 signal processor installed. Any ideas? I would appreciate any help you can offer.

Re: No sound from turn by turn navigation

I have the IVA-D310 head unit, so I'm not sure if it is the same on your W200, but in my "Setup" menu I hit "Other Setup" there is a setting called "IN INT. MUTE" make sure that is set to OFF and "NAV. MIX" is set to ON.

Good luck

Re: No sound from turn by turn navigation

I have an MRA-F350 decoder/amp, which needs a KCE-900E between the Nav and the Head to correctly route the audio.  Without it, you'll only hear directions when you're specifically tuned to the Nav input.

I looked at the manual for your processor, and it looks like it needs the same thing (pg 42 in PDF on Alpine's site)

Nav  >  KCE-900E  >  Head  (RGB)
KCE-900E  >  Processor  (RCA + Guide Control)

Spent the winter in Florida and now we are back in DE and Everytime we turn it on it goes back to Florida. It isn't giving us the correct direction to our destination

It sounds like it may not have received a signal since you've returned to DE. It needs to sync up with the satellites in your new location before it will begin navigating properly.

- Make sure that your GPS can "see the sky"
- Turn it on.
- Wait for about 10 minutes.
- THEN try entering your destination.

Once your GPS re-syncs with the satellites in your current location it should be good to go and you'll be on your way!

Garmin Nuvi 265 to get voice command to work?

this may require two sessions but - here goes:
1- turn the unit on - select the VOICE icon on the opening screen - triple check it isn't muted and change it to 90% voice volume.
If this doesn't give you sound WHILE DRIVING - it won't give you voice unless you're moving or driving.

Then - turn the unit off - Turn it back on- - as it is starting up - and blank- place your thumb in the LOWER RIGHT CORNER of the blank Screen.

this will open this window:
SELECT - YES - it will reboot and your minor settings will be lost - like saved address and favorites - not your updated maps.
This will reset you to default NEW -
When done - sound will be as it was when new if no sound - return for repair.

Believe it! if it says maps not found putting it away for a few months wont repair it Ypu need to have the maps reinstalled. possible to corrupt maps easily by a spike from car charger or even leaving unit in a hot car or starting the engine while unit connected.

Check the navigation setup and make sure the voice guidance is set to on. If it is, then the installer didn't catch the right wire for vss. Had the same problem, after getting my unit professionally installed, figured it was a problem with unit so I upgraded to the G510 and installed the DV4100 in my other vehicle myself, caught the right vss wire and now the unit works perfectly,displays turn by turn and gives voice guidance. Read previous solutions, they really help.
