I agree with that. There is a small window on this model that detects light values to alter the screen to vary intensityof brightness. It is this part that is defective

When driving no voice, check sound is fine


If you're just driving around and you haven't selected navigate to a destination there will not be a voice. Try navigating to a destination as that is where you will get voice navigation suggestions or commands. If you don't get a voice then, perhaps you need to download a voice or two. This can be done using the Garmin Express software and a computer connected to your Nuvi using the USB cord.

No voice command


Try going to the settings menu and look for voice options. Usually there is a box that needs to be checked for the option to work.

I have a garmin 3970t and the voice command does not work


The Garmin's not very good at recognising the default set phrase to initial voice command; i.e. "Voice Command". If you bring up the Tools menu, and touch Voice Command, it will tell you what phrase it's expecting to hear and provide a button to touch to customise it. The default, as I said, is "voice command", but for some reason, it thinks it's pronounced something like "Vwuss commont". Try it. It might work!

I changed my voice command phrase to "Voys Commarnd" (I'm English - it's how my accent would be written phonetically). It now works most of the time without a problem.

Garmin Nuvi 265 wt...how to get voice command to work?


Hi,
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.

Garmin Nuvi 265w voice command stopped working. Any suggestion on what to check?


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} If you are not receiving any sound on your Nüvi 2xx the first thing to check is that the sound is not muted. To ensure that your units sound is not muted please perform the following:
  1. Turn the device on
  2. Press the Volume button on the ‘Where To?’, ‘View Map’ screen
  3. Ensure the Mute box is not ‘checked’
If the mute button is not ‘ticked’, you will need to change the voice to ensure that the preset voice is not faulty:
  1. Turn the device on
  2. Touch the Tool icon
  3. Touch Settings
  4. Touch Language
  5. Touch the language voice next to Voice
  6. Scroll through and select another appropriate voice

If changing the voice is not helping you will need to ensure that you are running the latest software which can be done by installing a program called WebUpdater. WebUpdater can be installed via the link below:

http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27

Once updated please allow the unit to reboot which will ensure the software successfully installs.

If after following all the above the final steps would be to perform a master reset:

Note: A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.

  1. Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
  4. Release the power button when the device powers on. After 5-10 seconds you will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
  5. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  6. Touch Yes

The device will automatically reset. Please follow the on screen prompts on the nuvi and when completed place your device in an area with a clear view of the sky until it acquires satellites.

Garmin voice command not working


I am not fimiarly with tom tom, but I do know on my garmin gps, there is a mute feature on the volume. On my mine it is on the main menu screen right after you turn it on. On yours you may have to go to a menu or something to turn the mute off.
