Re: lost voice

Is there a setting in the utilities/tools to turn on/off turn-by-turn voice? I would check that first.

Why is there no voice commands

Not all GPS units have voice capabilities. That is a function that is normally only included in the more expensive units. Most GPS unit have the capabilities to voice directions and street names, but will not work with your voice.

Garmin Nuvi 265 to get voice command to work?

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.

No voice directions when i return to Home??

Do you have the sound on?
I do not have this one, but the menus are probably similar. Go to change preferences (blue wrench) and make sure the sound is on. Also then select the voice you want (by scrolling further inthe preference menu to the 'change voice' icon (the lips).

How do I use the voice command?

HI Con613,
Voice command is one of the feature of the mobile. It is important and if u understand it, it is very easy and useful to us.
Voice command is used to perform some sort of function (such as to open apps, camera, voice recorder, etc. and to call peoples) by giving voice command.
For it u need to go to voice command in tools in menu, then a list of apps appears. In it, u choose 1 apps, then it gives command to record voice. Record any voice of urs as command for it. When in standby mode or desktop, hold right soft key until voice command appears. Then give the same voice as recorded before to open the choosen apps.
Same process is to be applied for the apps.
For dialling people from voice command, u need to go to the person's contact. Go to options of it and add a voice as command for it. And same process is to be applied as to open the apps.
thank you
It is for mobile users.
If it is helpful for u, u can feedback me.
And i will help u later in other problems.
