The voice on my garwin nuvi 1300 gps stopped working and it is not mutted


Either the voice file is corrupted or not selected.
1. To select a new voice:
  • Press TOOLS (Bottom right corner of the screen with WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS
  • Press LANGUAGE
On this screen there are 3 items including VOICE. Press VOICE and select ENGLISH if it's not already selected. If that doesn't solve the problem the English voice file is probably corrupted and needs to be downloaded again.
2. To replace the corrupted voice file:
  • Download and install, to your computer, the latest version of WEBUPDATER from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
  • Connect your satnav to your computer and run the webupdater program.
  • It will find any updates to the satnav operating system. Select all and install them.
  • When the updates are installed webupdater will find optional updates including voice files. Select some of the English voice files and download them.
When they are downloaded safely disconnect your satnav and re-start it. You will then need to select one of the voices you downloaded as described in paragraph 1 above. This should solve your problem.

I have a nuvi 760 and lost the voice instructions


First check that the sound has not been muted. Pres the volume symbol and see if the mute box is ticked. If not either the voice has become unselected or the voice file has become corrupted. Press, Tools, Settings, Language. The selected voice should be displayed. Press voice and select another. If there's not another voice or if the voice file is corrupted you can download it again. First download webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 and install it. Connect the satnav to your computer and using webupdater it will search for updates. When it's finished it will give you the option to select voice files by clicking on them. Select the ones you want and press next. When the files are downloaded and the satnav is disconnected from the computer you can select the voice you want as described above.

Volume to low for nav, i know there is a way to adjust the nav. only volume but i dont remember how


It is possible to turn up the voice level...but you have to be willing to hack the voice file a wee bit with a hex editor.
Just Open the .vpm file you want to modify in the hex editor, and search for "<voice_volume>96</voice_volume>" without the quotation marks...and change the numerical value - I have Australian Karen cranked up to 96. This makes the sound level of the voice prompts comparable to the MP3 level when I hook my Nuvi350 into my vehicle's sound system via the added line input that takes the place of the non-existent CD changer. Before I did this, when I played MP3s at a comfotable listening level, the voice prompts were too quiet. Now, they're comparable.

Hope this is what you were looking for

****HELPFUL HINT**** Before you do anything with the Garmin unit, you might want to make a folder somewhere on your computer and name it something like NUVI CONTENTS. Then copy and paste or drag and drop, however you want to do it, all the contents of your NUVI. This way if you do something you didn't mean to, like delete a language, you can just put it back in.

Now what you need to look for are 3 folders, one is the HELP folder which is pretty useless once you get the hang of the Garmin unit. As a matter of fact I never even used the HELP button on the Garmin unit, because it's so easy to use.

The other folder is the VOICE folder, open it and start deleting the languages you are not likely to use or need. Make sure you DO NOT delete American English, unless you want to stick to British English. Of course I am assuming you need English, but regardless it goes for whichever language you want to keep. Assuming you are keeping American English these are the names of the files you need to keep in the VOICE folder english_american_.sum and English_American_.vpm.

The last folder is the TEXT folder, open it and delete all the files if you want. American English is the default so it won't go away, but regardless you'll have a back up anyways...RIGHT? LOL

I hope this helps you, and if you have any questions lay them on and I'll see what I can do for you. But I will say that I just bought my Nuvi back in April of this year so I am still learning a lot about it. I am working on tweaking the XML file so that it will ready more than 1 map on the SD, right now we are limited to 1 map per SD card.

Deleted voice


Hello Sallilou,

If you deleted the voice files without backing them up you can try running the Garmin WebUpdater software. This program updates the operating software for your GPS and can be used to update maps and other files. It may be possible to reinstall the voice files using WebUpdater. (To download the WebUpdater software go here.)

Some of the Garmin products do have voice files available for download via the Garmin website. (Namely the Quest product.) However the Nuvi 200W does not appear to have such files immediately available for download.

If you aren't able to update the voice files this way I would suggest you give Garmin a call directly.

Best Regards,
Ken

My Nuvi 360 volume for the voice prompts is too low, even on the highest setting. I also have a Nuvi 200, and the volume is fine on that unit. But if I get a phone call on my 360, the volume is OK. Is...
