Re: Garmin 530 Radio problem

Did this start happening after the latest download? If so re load the current version of the software and do not turn off the radio until the download is complete. Please answer back and let me know.

Garmin Rino 530 radio noise even with squelch turned up. Hissing

Are you carrying a cell phone with you at the time? A cell phone can interfere with these units. You may want to call Garmin to ask questions on this problem. They are very helpful and professional.

The internal audio amplifier is defective. If you don't want to send it back to garmin and pay their flat rate of $175.00 for repair (I didn't ) then by all means do so. If not then go to Radio Shack and purchase a battery operated amplified speaker. It is small and plugs easily into the side of your unit. Best of all it's only ($14.95) It works great because it bypasses the internal speaker and the sound id just as good if not better then the garmin speaker- You can control the volume by using the settings on your unit. The other alternitive is to purchase an FM transmitter. By pluging this into the unit it will transmit the voice into your car radio. the only problem is that you havwe to have it tunned to one station and won't be able to listen to your radio. Its sad that garmin does not repair thes units for a better price especially when they know there is problems with these speakers. I foe one will never buy another GArmin product and i tell everyone i know about this and advise them the same. Hopes this helps !!!

No car radio / stereo for use with Garmin nuvi 750 GPS

Every Garmin Nuvi unit I've seen has a (loud) built-in speaker. The only demand our 250s and 265 make of the vehicle is a 12V power supply (and they'll even work without that for a while, until the battery goes flat).

Garmin 760 phone feature

Did you check the settings for the sound output? If it is set to FM-receiver, you have to tune your radio to the same frequency as the 760 transmitting frequency. To get sound from 760-device, you must deselect the FM-transmitting feature.
(I don´t think this solves your problem. Too obvious.)

My husband had the same problem with his i2 Street Pilot.
He went to the Garmin web site and downloaded the latest
updated software version. You can then chose the language options, too.
