Question about Garmin zumo 550 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

No Voice When fitted to the car cradle there are no audible directions. When I first bought the device it worked perfectly then her voice became a little distorted and a short while later disappeared altogether. The microphone occasionally crackles but thats it.

Re: No Voice

Have you tried someone elses car cradle? There is a small amp in the car cradle which is probably fried, Is it under warranty? If so ship it back, if not, find another zumo user to test if it's the cradle or not, then still try Garmin, if the response is 'no warranty', shop for a cradle on ebay..seen them NEW for less than $ 50

No voice.

Does everything else work the way it should? I am assuming you have the voice announcements turned on. Try it with the voice announcements turned off and just audible cues turned on. If it doesn't sound right on that setting, the audio chip on the main board is bad.

Hi i have just bought a magellan maestro and can not get the voice directions working... it is a magellan maestro 4200

you say the voice directions are not working, but does the voice work at when you scroll back through the screens, it should say back ect ect. if the voice does not work at all, ck the speaker icon on the main map screen to see if its muted, indicated by a slash through the icon..if it is not on mute, go to the system folder the to the sound tab go in there and make sure its not muted in there, if it is, unmute it and restart the gps..its a common problem on these magellan if the battery is run to low or completly dead which causes more problems. if all else fails, do a hard reset

Tom Tom clicks constantly

Unfortunately the device is not very user servicable. Your best bet wuold be to find a repair shop and get a quote on repair vs. new.

Gps will not announce street names, highway's, etc. Important note: it had been announcing this data since I bought the GPS in December but just recently stopped doing so.

You have to change the voice to a computer voice. Go to where you choose voices on the main menu Change preferences > Voice preferences > Change voice. Find a voice with the word "computer" in the name and select it. At that point you will be asked what you want to be announced. By the way, this is called "text to speech" in TomTom talk.

No voice during navigation

Have you tried to reset everything to Factory state? Both GPS and System? If it doesn't help then restore Sanyo map software from supplied DVD. Something must be missing or corrupted.
