Question about Kenwood Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

Hi. I have a problem with a new Kenwood DNX6140; specifically the Voice Guidance on the Garmin Navigation. I need to adjust the volume. I can do it on all the other features of this device; DVD, CD, XM, FM, etc. but the volume knob has no impact on the Garmin. It is blasting me out of the car. Can you help?

CLICK HERE for your owners manual

Page 67 describes adjusting the NAV volume.
Under AV interface - NAV VOICE VOLUME - make your adjustment - it will remember the preset every time.

To get there - see page 66....
Touch AV Interface from the SETUP MENU screen (page 60)

You are looking for option 13. NAV VOICE VOLUME.

Garmin 760 stopped talking was fine yesterday


Make sure the volume isn't muted. There is a separate volume adjustment for Navigation (voice) in addition to media player. Can be a bad speaker. Make sure a TTS voice is selected. More info at these links:

Garmin 265 W won't speak street names


Hi,

Below is the procedures for setting the languages...

Touch tools > settings > language > voice.

Voice- changes the language for voice promts.
Languages noted with a persons name are (tts)
text to speak voices.

which have an extensive vocabulary and pronounce
the street names as you approach turns.

The pre-recoreded voices (those without a persons name)
have a limited vocabulary and (do not speak names of locations or streets)

Text language- change all on-screen text to the selected language,
changing the text language does not change the language of user entered data
or map data, such as street names.

Keyboard- select the keyboard for your language,
you can also change the keyboard language mode from any keyboard
by touching the mode button

Adjusting the volume levels
From the "menu" page touch "volume"
to adjust the volume.

To adjust the volume levels for the media player
and the navigation prompts,
please click.

Tools > settings > Volume > Restore
Restore will, restore to origional volume levels.


Regards
Richard

Check the navigation setup and make sure the voice guidance is set to on. If it is, then the installer didn't catch the right wire for vss. Had the same problem, after getting my unit professionally installed, figured it was a problem with unit so I upgraded to the G510 and installed the DV4100 in my other vehicle myself, caught the right vss wire and now the unit works perfectly,displays turn by turn and gives voice guidance. Read previous solutions, they really help.

No Voice Guidance


Are you sure the volume was up? There is a scroll wheel on the top right side of the unit (as you face it). Make sure it is turned all the way up towards the top of the GPS. You should see yellow bars in the right of the unit indicating the volume level. Also, when you turn the unit on, there is a button on the bottom right that looks like a wrench. Tap this, then press the down arrow on the bottom right. You will see an icon that says, "Volume." Tap it, then check that the "Navigation" volume level is where you want it to be (normally 100%, but that is up to you).
