Re: street pilot i3 has stoped talking

Check that the volume is turned up sufficiently, try a factory reset, if neither solves the problem it is 99% sure to be a faulty speaker, only fix is to replace the speaker. Early symptoms before failure can somtimes be distorted or interupted sound
Hope this helps.

Re: street pilot i3 has stoped talking

1 had the same issue. Voice sis not appear at all in the settings, just text language was there. Did not want to reset and loose saved data. I plugged in to my PC, installed less maps to leave some memory free, then went throught the install process and selected a different language than US english. After install, it was back and it also talks French. Hope this helps.

Garmin i5 street pilot

I had an i5 that lost voice. I fixed it by just replacing the speaker. Take it apart and measure the resistance on the speaker. If it is open or not 8 ohms, then you can use this speaker.

Good Luck

The street Pilot Series also has a side connection for the computer with the mini-USB cable that you can plug a Nuvi charger into and it will work and charge the unit.

When you say you are clicking on the map, are you just using your mouse pointer to click or have you actually selected the Map Select tool at the top of your Mapsource screen?

: My nuvi is supposed to speak street names when giving voice prompts but it doesn't. How can I fix this?
Answer: All of the Garmin automotive GPS units that speak street names are also loaded with basic voice prompts (i.e. 'Turn Right in 500 feet') as well as 'text-to-speech' voices that speak street names. If one of the basic types of voice prompts has been selected, the voice prompts will not speak street names.
In order to change this setting on the nüvi line of products, please follow these steps:
  1. In the Main Menu, tap on the Settings icon.
  2. Tap on "Locale"
  3. The second line on this screen has a picture of a mouth. To the right, the current voice for the GPS device is listed. Tap it to change the voice.
  4. Select a voice that is labeled with (TTS) at the end. These voices will speak street names.
  5. Select "OK". The voice has now been changed.
The device should now speak street names.
