Re: voice feature

If your lucky, all it will need is a reset start the unit and using apaper clip, insert it in the small hole on the side. if that fails, try2.62 3.61 update using the Magellan link below...follow the updatedirections to the letter..this update is huge (1.75GB) and takes about45 minutes to install so be must register your unit on the magellan site to download the update.

let me know if you need further help!

Why doesn"t the girl in voice command talk to me

Did you forget to take out the trash? You should be able to switch the voices and voice response in the setup menu. I believe there are three voices to choose from. Also check to make sure you did not turn off the voice option in the settings as well. .

The voice on my garwin nuvi 1300 gps stopped working and it is not mutted

Either the voice file is corrupted or not selected.
1. To select a new voice:
  • Press TOOLS (Bottom right corner of the screen with WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS
  • Press LANGUAGE
On this screen there are 3 items including VOICE. Press VOICE and select ENGLISH if it's not already selected. If that doesn't solve the problem the English voice file is probably corrupted and needs to be downloaded again.
2. To replace the corrupted voice file:
  • Download and install, to your computer, the latest version of WEBUPDATER from
  • Connect your satnav to your computer and run the webupdater program.
  • It will find any updates to the satnav operating system. Select all and install them.
  • When the updates are installed webupdater will find optional updates including voice files. Select some of the English voice files and download them.
When they are downloaded safely disconnect your satnav and re-start it. You will then need to select one of the voices you downloaded as described in paragraph 1 above. This should solve your problem.

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.

The voice on Garmin stopped working


Please do this and let me know results.

If your device is not providing navigational prompts the language settings on the device will need to be checked:
  1. Turn the device on
  2. Touch Tools
  3. Touch Settings
  4. Touch Language
  5. Touch the blue box under Voice

If this section has your desired voice please make sure this voice is selected which will resolve the issue.

If the above fails or the unit doesn’t list the voice/s that you require you will need to update the software and reload the voice/s back to the device via WebUpdater. To install WebUpdater please click the link below:

Once installed and the software is updated please make sure that you check for additional updates which should provide you with a number of voices to reinstall to your device.

Once reinstalled your problem should be resolved.

How do I get it to verbalize strret names as opposed to turn right for example it says Q4-01

Your unit must have TTS (Text to speech) for this feature to work. Not all voices have TTS. It is possible that your unit does not have TTS, or that the voice you have chosen does not do TTS. Check to see if there is an alternate voice with TTS.

I just bought the tomtom 130 s and I cannot get it to speak

Be sure to select a voice that is a "Computer Voice" not a "recorded voice" The GPS uses voice synthesis or "Phonems" to speak the text. not all voices support this. Change voice in preferencs to fix this!
