Re: no volume will not give voice prompt

Make sure you don't have the sound muted. Have you tried plugging in a set of headphones into the headphone jack? If you can hear sound with the headphones, most likely, the internal speakers have failed. If you still can't hear any sound, the audio output stage on the motherboard1.gif has failed. In either case, you will need to send the unit back for repair. Be sure to have your serial number handy. Register it online
if you haven't already done so.

Most GPS units are touch screen friendly,if your unit has an icon that looks like a speaker,touch it & it should go 2 volume control mode.

Speaker works for playing of MP3 songs but does not give direction instructions when on purely satnav. Have tried increasing/decreasing volume but no sound comes out of the unit. Have also done a factory...

spoken directions are only available when the computer generated voice has been activated. If you choose any other voice, you will no longer get spoken directions

Garmin Nuvi 265 to get voice command to work?

this may require two sessions but - here goes:
1- turn the unit on - select the VOICE icon on the opening screen - triple check it isn't muted and change it to 90% voice volume.
If this doesn't give you sound WHILE DRIVING - it won't give you voice unless you're moving or driving.

Then - turn the unit off - Turn it back on- - as it is starting up - and blank- place your thumb in the LOWER RIGHT CORNER of the blank Screen.

this will open this window:
SELECT - YES - it will reboot and your minor settings will be lost - like saved address and favorites - not your updated maps.
This will reset you to default NEW -
When done - sound will be as it was when new if no sound - return for repair.

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!

Audio directions

You must ensure that your volume is not on mute. You need to tap on where the words are, not on the map, until the volume slide bar pops up. You may have to tap in different places until it does. If your volume is set normally, you need to check on which voice you have picked. It's under the options. Pick a different voice and test out the directions.

I can't seem to enable to voice prompts

Taken from the Garmin website:

"This error is most likely caused because the voice files need to be reloaded onto the iQue. Insert the iQue setup disk and select 'Install Software'. Then select 'Change voice'. Then select the voice to be installed on the device. When the voice files are finished installing, perform a Hotsync. The voice guidance files will then be restored to the unit and the voice prompts should work correctly."

Check your voice prompts.  make sure you are using either Jack or Jane.  the standard voice is the same as the voice on C330 which only gives you directions.
