Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I just purchased a Garmin Nuvi 285W. I can't find a way to make it repeat the voice prompt for turn instructions - every now and then I will miss the first part of the instruction and would love to be able to have the device repeat the voice prompt. I am leaving tomorrow for North Carolina and am so hopeful maybe someone can help.

Nuvi 285w stopped working after changing the battery


Most likely the flex cable for the display was pulled out of the connector on the main board. Also, if there is no sound, the speaker plug may not have been plugged back in. It may be plugged in but if the display is disconnected, you won't hear any sounds because you are unable to select any function with the touchscreen to activate a sound. We receive a lot of our repairs from failed battery replacements. The video makes it look easy but it is very easy to break something, especially if this is the first time someone attempts to do this.

No sound


Turn the volume up. Turn on the Garmin Nuvi. Tap the "Volume" button on the "Where to?" or home screen. Move the slider for the volume up.

Unmute the Garmin Nuvi. Tap the "Volume" icon again. Uncheck the "Mute" option, if it is currently checked.

Make sure the voice is not faulty. The navigation instructions are provided by a voice.To verify whether or not the present voice is faulty, you must switch the voice. Power on the Nuvi and tap the "Tool" icon. Tap "Settings" in the Tool menu. Tap the "Language" option and tap the language you want. Then select another voice to use. Now go back to the home screen and enter an address into the "Where to?" option. See if you can hear sound now.

Update the Garmin Nuvi with WebUpdater. Download and install WebUpdater from the Garmin website (see Resources). Launch WebUpdater on the computer, and connect the Nuvi to the computer with the USB cable. The software will detect the Nuvi and locate all updates for the device. Confirm that you want to update the device when prompted and WebUpdater will download the updates to the Nuvi.

Reset the Garmin Nuvi. A master reset will restore the Nuvi to its factory configurations and delete all favorites and waypoints that have been added. Power off the Nuvi and unplug it from any power source. Hold your finger down on the bottom right corner of the Nuvi screen, at the same time power the device back on. When asked "Do you really want to erase all user data?," remove your finger from the bottom corner of the screen and tap "Yes." The device will reset and sound should be restored.

It is the full manual from start to finish with complete operating procedures as well as schematics, operation instructions complete with pictures, and trouble shooting section and even other contact numbers to deal direct with Garmin, if your model is not covered in this manual.

Garmin Nuvi 1390 voice prompt does not work


If your garmin nuvi's voice prompt does not work anymore, then you have to connect it to a system, back up all your files, then you reset or format it, once you have done that, then you restore your maps back on it, then you connect it back to where you took it out from, then you reset the voice prompt. After doing this Your voice prompt should be in good order.

How do I change the voice on my garmin?


1. Press Tools, then press Settings, then press Language. There should be voices displayed. Press the one you want to select it.

2. If there's only one voice on the satnav you can download more from garmin. First connect the satnav to your pc and go to http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp and download webupdater. When it's installed it will search for updates to your software. Follow the prompts and it will give you a selection of voices to pick from. Tick the ones you want and click next. They will be downloaded to your satnav. Then after you disconnect from the pc repeat the instructions in para 1 above to change to the voice of your choice.

No car radio / stereo for use with Garmin nuvi 750 GPS


Every Garmin Nuvi unit I've seen has a (loud) built-in speaker. The only demand our 250s and 265 make of the vehicle is a 12V power supply (and they'll even work without that for a while, until the battery goes flat).
