Really the only thing you can do if the volume is turned all the way up is replace the GPS.

### How much is 5millileters in milligrams?

The milligram is the 1/1000 part of a gram. The gram (g) is a unit of quantity of substance or mass.
The milliliter (or millilitre) is the 1/1000 part of a liter (or litre). The liter is a unit of capacity (or volume).
In truth you cannot compare units of mass and units of volume because each unit measures mass and the other volume. Similarly people express distance (kilometers, or miles) in minutes or hours. How far is the store? Instead of saying 10 or 20 miles they would say half an hour. Well half an hour of driving in the city cover a lot less distance than half an hour on the highway or half an hour for the bullet train.
When you are talking about water in its liquid state (not vapor nor ice) at a temperature of about 4 degrees Celsius, 1 gram of water occupies 1 cm^3 or 1 mL. So 1/1000 of a gram of liquid water occupies 1/1000 of a milliliter or 1/1000 000 of a liter.
A volume of 5 mL of liquid water has a mass of 5 g or 5 000 mg.

### My garmin nuvi suddenly lost volume

http://www.sharc.net/gps_audio_repair.htm

It is hard to give to determine the problem as you did not indicate the model of Nuvi. Garmin made a lot of models of Nuvi.

### Speaker Volume Adjustment on a Motorola MC3190 Handheld Barcode Scanner

We have 'pens' that we can use on the screen, so I was able to click on the 'Window' icon at the bottom left corner, select 'Settings', then 'Control Panel', and double-click on 'Volume and Sounds'. I only work with touch-screen guns, so don't know how to get there without the 'pen'... though finger nails have worked, but it's tough with a small icon in the corner like that.
I don't know of any way to get it to vibrate. With our gloves, we wouldn't feel it anyway. In a warehouse, having the clicking sound loud enough means we can hear if a box is skipped or an error occurs.

### Works fine, except the beeps suddenly went silent. Examples: 1. When food is finished cooking, no beep any longer. 2. When pressing any key to set for cooking, no beeps any longer. Never thought that...

On page 21 of the owner's manual (online here), that's covered under "AUDIBLE SIGNAL ELIMINATION":

If you wish to have the oven operate with no audible signals, touch CUSTOM HELP, the number 2 and STOP/CLEAR.

To cancel and restore the audible signal, touch CUSTOM HELP, the number 2 and START/MINUTE PLUS.

### Garmin edge 305 screen not on. went over some very rough roads and lost the screen. can hear beeps when i push some buttons but no screen. tried the soft and hard resets described by some w/o success.

Probably a bad contact inside then.

Be careful however to update the device and hard reset it once again before trying opening it.

If device under warranty please send back to Garmin, if you open oit warranty will end automatically.

If none of this is possible then try trick posted at following site :

### Garmin Nuvi 360

Have you checked the volume (wrench/volume mp3/audible 100%) Does the garmin detect the phone properly?
Have you checked the firmware thru http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

After you update delete the connection between garmin and phone and pair them again.

### Garmin nuvi 360 speaker not working

I fixed my wife's with a speaker from Digikey, part number 102-1564-NE (2 watt speaker, 8 ohms). If you have the guts to take it apart, then it's not too tough. I used a 0.020" thick plastic card (a credit card is 0.030 and is a little to thick) to separate the cover, a very small torx and phillips screw driver, and a soldering iron.

### How to activate my nuvi 660 using my mac and itunes or audible.com

I had the same problem and was able to resolve it using the procedure (listed below) from Audible technical support.  It's wordy, but the long and short of it is that you need to activate the Nuvi on a PC machine, then you can use it on the Mac.  To transfer files, open iTunes audiobook window, then drag your books of choice from that window to the Nuvi icon on the desktop.  I had no problems using this procedure.

Thank you for contacting Audible.com. On its behalf, I would like to apologize for any inconvenience and I am most committed to satisfying and resolving your inquiry to the fullest of my abilities.

As per your email I understand that you wish to use your Garmin GPS with Audible on your Mac.

Unfortunately, the Garmin is not supported on a Mac with Audible audiobooks unless it is first activated on a Windows PC. If you have access to a Windows PC please follow the requested steps below to activate it on a PC first. Once successfully activated you will be able to use your Mac to transfer your audiobooks onto it.

If you have access to a Windows PC to activate your Garmin GPS through the Audible Manager software please do the following to get started.

Make sure Audible Manager is installed in your PC, otherwise please go to: Audible Software page ( www.audible.com/software ) and download the version for Download for Windows 2000, XP, or Vista. Select Run or Save. During this installation process, a message: "If you already own an Audible Ready mobile device, please select it from the choices below", will prompt, please select Garmin GPS Devices from the list.

If Audible Manager is already installed on your PC: Launch Audible Manager, click on Devices > Add new device. You will be asked to connect to the Internet. Click Yes to connect. From the list of devices, select the Garmin GPS Devices, and click ok.

Once installed successfully now please follow the requested steps to activate your Garmin Nuvi using the Audible Manager software.

Ensure that the device is connected to the PC and Internal Memory is selected to activate the Main Memory of your GPS. Please note you may transfer your audiobooks onto the SD card as well if you have one.

Right-click the Garmin plugin in the bottom left corner of Audible Manager ( below Mobile Devices ) and choose activate.

Once your Garmin has been successfully activated using a Windows PC you may now use your Mac to transfer your Audible audiobooks to your Gramin.

Connect your Garmin device to computer.

Drag the book from iTunes onto the Garmin device.

Unfortunately, at this time we do not have any information regarding the Garmin GPS being supported on a Mac in the future. However, I will be glad to forward your email address to upper management so you are notified once the Garmin GPS is supported on a Mac.

As always, I hope I have met all your needs and requests, as it has been a pleasure assisting you today. If I could be of any further assistance, or answer any further questions, please let me know and I'll be happy to do so.
