Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

The voice on my Garmin Nuvi (not sure which version but I've had it for about 2 - 3 years) quit working. It happened out of the blue and I had not touched my settings, I checked them and they seem to be fine, any suggestions or did my Garmin just **** out?

Garmin nuvi has no sound navigation working volume 100% mute not on


1. Pres Tools, then settings then language and select Voice. Try selecting a voice. This may solve your problem.

2 If not it's probably because the Voice file has become corrupted. Connect your Satnav to your pc and download the latest version of Webupdater from (http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp) and follow the instructions. When it's installed click next, tick the voices you want to download, press next and then finish.

3 You can change which voice you use then by following the advice in para 1 above.

1. Check that the volume has not been muted by touching the speaker symbol on the main screen. If mute is ticked touch it to unselect it.

2. If this is not the problem on the main screen touch tools, then settings, then language and select a voice. If you didn't download extra voices there's probably only one there.

3. If that doesn't solve the problem the voice file may be corrupted and need to be downloaded again. Connect your Satnav to the pc. Go to http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp and download the latest version of webupdater. After the software is updated click next, Tick the voices you want to select them, Tick next and then Finish. This will download the voices selected to your Satnav. You will have to repeat para 2 above to select the voice you want. You can experiment and try out different voices to see which you prefer.

No audio on my nuvi.


At some point you may have switched the unit off before it completed it's start up dance. This will wipe out the voice file more often than not.

You will need use Garmin's web updater and re-install the file for the voice you want.

Garmin wont talk


Thank you for contacting Garmin International. If you are not receiving verbal instructions from your unit there are a few things we can try to correct it. One would be to make sure there is a voice selected. You can check by pressing Tools, Settings, and Languages. If the box associated with the voice language is empty, press it and select a voice with a proper name after it and hit OK. Then you'll be fine. If it says "No Voice Found" please download and run Webupdater and you will be able to download the voices again. I hope this helps and here are some instructions for downloading that program.


These instructions follow what I experienced getting the update file. Based on computer settings you may have a slightly different experience.


From Ed. I got mine to work by completely depleteing the battery. It talked again during the process.

Garmin Nuvi takes a long time to Acquire satellite


No. 98% of the time it took 45-56 seonds for your NUVI 660. Thats the compagny set up time acquisition and it did very well.

Be sur you had your flip antenna parallel to earth surface.
660 has THE BEST SIRF Chipset for acquiring satellite.

I had 2 NUVI 660 since 2 years. It work much better than those new 7xx series who it really took 2-3 minutes to acquire satellite.

Be sure you update your version to the last one.
