    Did you try to reset the unit?



    Soft reset - by pressing the reset button on the back



    Hard reset - press reset button / as soon as you release the button press and hold the power button until you see the Palm powered screen / a warning message is then displayed / then press the upper half of the scroll button on the front



    NOTE: doing a hard reset deletes everything

The voice file may have been corrupted.

1. To select a new voice file.
  • Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol at bottom right of screen showing WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS (spanner symbol) or LOCALE on models that don't have a SETTINGS icon
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
  • Press VOICE and select another voice from an English speaking country.
If this does not solve the problem you can download new voices.

2. To download them;
  • First download and install the latest version of WEBUPDATER on your computer from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
  • Connect your satnav to your computer and run WEBUPDATER. This will update your satnav software and when it's finished it will give you the option to download optional extras including voices. Select the ones you want and they'll be downloaded to your satnav.
After you have disconnected your satnav from your computer you'll need to select a voice again as in paragraph 1 above.

I have a Nuvi 250W and just downloaded new maps from Garmin (bought the online lifetime option). Now I only have the major routes on the display. I seem to have lost the minor roads? How must I fix...


First press tools, then settings and then maps. Press map info and the name of your map should be displayed with a tick beside it. If there's no tick press the map name and a tick will appear beside it. The map is now selected and should be ok.

If that doesn't solve the problem it may be because the map is locked. To unlock the map follow the instructions on http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/searchsupport and that should solve the problem.

The problem of east/west may be solved when the map is sorted out. If not change the voice. Press tools, settings, language and the voice name and select another voice. If there's not another english speaking voice you can connect your satnav to the computer and open webinstaller. When it finishes checking for software updates it will give you the option to download new voices. Tick the ones you want and then press next. They will be downloaded and then when you have disconnected from the pc go through the process of selecting a new voice again.

I am having problem with the sound. All of a sudden there is no voice. I tried to up the volume but the black lines turn to yellow and still no sound. What can I do?


You didn't give a model so you'll need to select it from the selection below.

I presume you checked that the mute box is not ticked beside the volume settings.

The most likely cause is that the voice file is either corrupted or has become unselected. To solve this problem;
To select or change the voice language on a nuvi 200/205/500/700/705/800/805/1200/1300/1400/1600/5000 series or zumo 600 series device:
  1. Touch the Tool icon
  2. Touch Settings
  3. Touch Language
  4. Touch Voice
  5. Touch the Voice Language you would like to use
  6. Touch 'Ok'
  7. Touch and hold the Back button to return to the main "Where To" and "View Map" menu
At this time your device should speak in the language you have set in step 5.
To select or change the voice language on a nuvi 300/600 or zumo 400/500 series device:
  1. Touch the Tool icon
  2. Touch Locale
  3. Touch Voice
  4. Touch the Voice Language you would like to use
  5. Touch 'Ok'
  6. Touch and hold the Back button to return to the main "Where To" and "View Map" menu
At this time your device should speak in the language you have set in step 5.

If the voice file is corrupted you'll need to download it from www.garmin.com First connect your satnav to your computer, download the latest version of webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 and install it on your computer. When it's installed it will search for updates for your satnav. After software has been updated it will give you a list of voices you can download. Select the ones you want by clicking on them. Click next and they will be downloaded to your satnav. When they're downloaded you'll need to repeat the instructions in para 1 above to select one on your satnav.

More than most do.
Make sure you have the latest nuvi "Firmware"
then update the maps. I would start with making sure you have the latest WebUpdater on your computer before you proceed with any updates.

If a nuvi 200 is has an older version of system software glitches may occur. The device may be missing letters or have jumbled letters or displaying duplicate letters or strange symbols on the address screen. To correct this you will need to update the system software of your nuvi. You can easily do this by using Garmin’s WebUpdater program:
  1. Click the following link to download the WebUpdater program: http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
  2. Follow the on screen prompts from the website
  3. Choose RUN/OPEN
  4. Follow the on screen prompts
After the program has been installed it should run automatically. If it does not please use the steps below.
To run WebUpdater:
  1. From the Start menu, click All Programs and find the Garmin folder
  2. Click WebUpdater
  3. Connect your nuvi to an available USB port on your computer
  4. To search for an available update, choose NEXT
  5. As the program automatically finds updates, choose NEXT to load the update. Once the update is complete, you can search for other updates such as voice languages, Bluetooth, and Traffic Receiver.
  6. Disconnect the unit to ensure it powers on.
Take your unit outdoors and keep it in a stationary position with an open sky view until it reacquires satellites.

No voice directions


In case it is a software problem try this and see if it will fix it....Try this and see if it fixes your problem...follow these steps.
1. Power off the unit.
2. HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear on the lower part of the display. KEEP HOLDING the power button down and the display will flicker, do this until the pre boot mode message disappears. This seems to take a long time (60 seconds at least).
3. Once the pre boot mode message disappears release the power button and your device will perform some activites to try recover from the problem.

Garmin 760 - No Voice Directions


Check The system settings, I had to download the newest version of the audio software for the voice to work. The software vanished once and I had to re-download it using the web updater.

Hopefully it will stick around this time.

When I load the new software the voice works.

Re: Not sayinstreet names.
After you turn on your unit touch the wrench icon in the bottom right of the screen, this will take you to a menu which features "Settings" in the upper left of the screen. Touch "settings" and scroll down to "language" by using the up and down buttons in the lower right of the screen (down 1 should do it). Touch "Language" and in the voice category find and select "American English - Jill (TTS)". This is the voice that will give you Text To Speech (TTS) speaking the street names in English. If you prefer Spanish or French, find the appropriate catergories with "(TTS)" beside them - "Espanol Americas - Paulina (TTS)" and "Francais Canadien - Julie (TTS)" respectively. Any other selection will only give directional instructions such as "turn left in XXX".

After you have selected your voice press "OK" and back out to your main menu showing "Where to?" and View Map".

Now, when you navigate, you should hear an American female voice giving you directions by street name - assuming your volume is high enough to hear it.

RE: The computer icon displaying when you try to use your unit in the car with the 12 VDC cord.
You probably have a problem with the cord. The pin length in the USB style connector is critical and if it doesn't match up just right the GPS thinks it is hooked up to a computer. If you know someone who has a Garmin NUVI try using their cord and see if you have the same problem. Either way, call Garmin and see if they will send you a replacement cord or otherwise help fix the problem.
