Voice prompt on my streetpilot 2720 suddenly stopped working about a week ago. Only thing I can recall is that I tried unsuccessfully to update the software using webupdater. Today I updated it successfully. But voice prompt is still not working.
I contacted Garmin and they came thru again! If you happen to change the voice (or one of your kids changes the voice) of the navigator, make sure the TTS selection is chosen.
If changing the speech was not the problem, try removing the connector on the back of the unit and putting it back in. After a couple of times doing this I got the familiar "click click" when I typed and speech was restored as well!

I had a similar problem on my vacation. the voice stopped working suddenly. in my case i could get it working again by reselecting the voice (american/british etc) in the language section. for some reason it had reset to blank.

Do you use the plug in adapter with the speaker in the plug?
Check it, there is a small volume wheel on it, probably sent it to zero whilst unplugging or plugging it....also check if the power plug is fully seated in the GPS
