Question about Garmin Nuvi 610 GPS Receiver

Garmin Nuvi 610T

My voice prompts do not work. I have checked the volume, I only have one british voice which is female so I am unable to change to another English speaking voice.

Please can you help with this promlem, or alternatively can you advise as to where I could take this to get it repaired near to NW9 (London)

Many thanks

No sound


Turn the volume up. Turn on the Garmin Nuvi. Tap the "Volume" button on the "Where to?" or home screen. Move the slider for the volume up.

Unmute the Garmin Nuvi. Tap the "Volume" icon again. Uncheck the "Mute" option, if it is currently checked.

Make sure the voice is not faulty. The navigation instructions are provided by a voice.To verify whether or not the present voice is faulty, you must switch the voice. Power on the Nuvi and tap the "Tool" icon. Tap "Settings" in the Tool menu. Tap the "Language" option and tap the language you want. Then select another voice to use. Now go back to the home screen and enter an address into the "Where to?" option. See if you can hear sound now.

Update the Garmin Nuvi with WebUpdater. Download and install WebUpdater from the Garmin website (see Resources). Launch WebUpdater on the computer, and connect the Nuvi to the computer with the USB cable. The software will detect the Nuvi and locate all updates for the device. Confirm that you want to update the device when prompted and WebUpdater will download the updates to the Nuvi.

Reset the Garmin Nuvi. A master reset will restore the Nuvi to its factory configurations and delete all favorites and waypoints that have been added. Power off the Nuvi and unplug it from any power source. Hold your finger down on the bottom right corner of the Nuvi screen, at the same time power the device back on. When asked "Do you really want to erase all user data?," remove your finger from the bottom corner of the screen and tap "Yes." The device will reset and sound should be restored.

My Garmin Nuvi 255W does not pronounce the words "right" and "left" clearly. Right sounds like "roft" and left sounds like "laft". Very confusing because they both sound pretty much the same. Is there...


You can try changing the voice to a differant one. For an example a british voice or a female voice might be clearer for you.

I'm assuming that the voice is actually fine but just not that clear to you. If the voice file has a problem you can do a hard reset and it will reload the files and that may clear it up at the cost of having to setup everything again.

I had a similar problem on my vacation. the voice stopped working suddenly. in my case i could get it working again by reselecting the voice (american/british etc) in the language section. for some reason it had reset to blank.

but i still cannot get the text to speech to work.

No voice prompts on my new nuvi 750- volume level not muted.


I had the same problem after I had my Nuvi 750 for a few months.  The voice just stopped.  I called Garmin and they replaced it under warranty.

Copying files to the Garmin nuvi 610T


The pin should not be necessary if you are operating your garmin in your 'secure location' that you established when you enabled the garmin lock feature.

How are you accessing the device?

Voice directions not working.


First, ensure that you are using the unmuted internal speakers by pressing the power button twice while the unit is on.

Do you hear beeps (button tones) through the speakers?

These are a couple things to try:

1. Change the voice from English TTS (JILL) to English TTS (JAKE) - This will demonstrate whether the voice database has been corrupted.

2. Tap the power button twice while the unit is on to switch back to fm transmitter and attempt to use your radio to tune the sound. If you succeed here, you may indeed have a problem with your internal speaker. A return of the product may be necessary.
