    I have been usibg the unit for several months, Twice, the sound just stopped then a couple ofweeks later it came back on. Now it has lost the sound again and try as I may, I can't get it back. Where oh where dis it go?

    My Maestro 3100 would have no audio anytime I turned the unit on.

    I had to hit the reset button recessed on left side of the unit with a paper clip or the tip of a pin to get it to work.

    now it just does not work at all.

    I'm thinking that something is wrong with the plug for the earpiece.

    Help ! how can I get this feature to work again.

    This is actually the most important thing about it.

    Received the Maestro 3100 as a gift and followed the instruction for software update (recommended) the only problem is the there is no sound now and can not get it back on. Have contacted the manufacturer with " yes it's a problem but we don't have a solution". If you know there is a problem and don't know how to fix it, why put the product on the market. Sure would stop me from ever considering your products again and will certainly spread the word to others to avoid this product.

Check the audio out port..A faulty port can result in the on board speaker cutting out or muting out. try connectting an external speaker jack into the audio out port and slightly wiggle it.

I do not recommend but open up the unit and check for dry solder at the speaker end

If all ok, it might be a faulty speaker coil. replace with similar impedence

Want to turn voice off giving instructions telling me what to do next

Go into the tools menu or if it has a volume icon, turn the volume down all the way, you can't turn it off only down. Since you never give make, or model GPS that is about all I can say about it.
