    I have the same problem with my Garmin 350. No voice. No Tab tones. But it works with headphones.
    I have "cured" the problem earlier from the audio test page (witch make me beleave that it is a software problem), but this time I can not get it to work.
    I have tried reset and reinstalling software from Garmins update-site.

I had the same dismountingproblems with a 360, but i found the solution. When you look behind de GPS-unit at the top of the case there are two little screws hidden. You have to dismount the GPS first to get to those screws. To dismount the GPS, open this unit with the two visible torcscrews. Open the GPS with little force and turn the cap clockwise and it will come loose. Look to the left into the plactic case where the GPS antenne is found. Then put a very small screwdriver in the shaft case (on the leftside you see a little whole 4 x 1 mm). If you put a little pressure on the screwdrive while moving it to the right you will feel a spring. Its working like a springconnection between a watch and a watchstrap. When you dismount the GPS look out for damaging the electrical connection. Then you can dismount the torcscrews and the maincase. When you open the case you 1 screw in the middle in the circuitboard. be very careful everything is very small.

Nuvi stopped talking. where is the mute button located on the unit?

If you are no longer getting the voice guidance from your gps, then you need to check if the volume is on the highest or lowest. There is no mute button on the gps, it is when the volume is at the lowest it seems muted. Ensure the volume is turned up by adjusting the scroll whell that is by the right hand side of the unit.
If that does not help, then you check the language settings in the unit. Verify that the voice is enabled, by following these steps:
  1. from the 'where to? view map' screen, touch 'tools',
  2. Touch 'language',
  3. Next to 'voice language' you will see 'jill' listed in the blue box on the right (if so the unit should be ready to use)
  4. If you do not see a 'voice' listed in the blue box, touch on the blue box,
  5. Select 'voice',
  6. Touch 'ok' at the bottom,
That should do the work for you.

No voice prompts on my new nuvi 750- volume level not muted.

I had the same problem after I had my Nuvi 750 for a few months.  The voice just stopped.  I called Garmin and they replaced it under warranty.

Garmin Nuvi 200 Voice no longer working

Does your Nuvi 200 have a headphone jack? If so, try that with a pair of headphones. If you hear sound, then your internal speaker went bad. It's a known problem with the Nuvi.

Garmin nuvi 350 troubleshooting

1)Does it make beeping sounds when you touch the screen buttons?

2)Can you hear the voice when you listen through an external headset?

If your answer is no to #1 and yes to #2 then you may have a dead speaker.

In the setup screen there is a way to select different voices/languages.  Try a different voice.

When those models first came out there was a problem with the software not recognizing the voice files.  There was a free update done to correct the problem.  If your current software version is less than 5.00 you should update.

Here's the update page:
