He would not have nothing to say if you did not set a "where to"

Few words , you mean "turn right in 500 ft" . Its normal your unit type has only Voice prompts and not TTS (SPEAK STREETS NAMES) .

For your MP3 palyer it should work. Did you play with something in the setup.

Make sure you have the latest update 5.20.
Please use the GARMIN WEB UPDATER for best result.

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 Nuvi won't talk. No sound when programming

If the mute is not checked, try plugging in a set of headphones. if you now hear sound, your internal speaker is blown. Please see this link:

My Garmin nuvi 205 has stopped talking. Is this fixable? Thanks for the help.

You have actidenttly muted your voice. You hit the menu button, and hit on volume. There is a check box next to the mute, uncheck that check mark.

I have only used it maybe 10 times. Suddenly it sounded like someone talking and it stopped working. I know nothing about it and of course lost all papers.I think i pushed something wrong :(

There may be a reset button on the back of the device under the flip up antenna. try pushing the reset button and it should reset the device back to the original factory settings. Sounds like your device froze up or got muted. If you still have no luck, call Garmin at:1-800-800-1020 . I hope the reset works for you, if not maybe Garmin could give you a few suggestions. Good Luck!

It just stopped talking. No voice directions, on

Hit the menu buttom, go to settings, then go to volume and see if it is muted. Sounds like the mute or volume down button got inadvertantly hit and turned down or muted. If this does not work, turn the unit over and look under the fold up antenna for a reset button. Depress this button until the unit restarts and should reset the unit back to factory default settings and get you on your way. Good luck!!! If these don't help you, call the garmin support number at :1-800-800-1020. Hope this helps!

My garmin nuvi 205 quit talking. volume is at 100% and not on mute. beep sounds work but when in route i have no next turn or direction sounds. screen map does work.

I have a 750. I went to settings, language and restored the defaults. The Voice was blank when I went to that screen. I am not sure if the 205 has the language setup or not, but this should solve other Garmin problems. And as a bonus, if you want to solve the problems with the US, Fire Congress check out

No Sound

You might have just turned the volume all the way down. Page 4 of your manual tells you how to adjust your volume.
