Whenever these devices start acting up, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205. Also, use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device.

I hope that helps.

How do I turn off the mute feature on my garmin LMT?

Looks like you can go to the setting and check the volume control. Some models with the + /- button at the side, just keep pushing the + button, the mute function would be off.

No volume on my garmin nuvi 1100 how do i fix it

There is volume on your garmin nuvi 1100. To check your volume, touch main menu, touch volume, Touch the arrow pointing left() to adjust the volume. Be sure that it is not on mute, by touching the box next to the volume, that is the mute button.

If the volume icon does not work, then it means there is a problem with the speaker that is at the back of the unit.

That should do the job for you. Hope this information helped.

Hi! I get no voice from my new Garmin 265W. It said a few things and now no voice. The maps are perfect. help!

1. Check the volume by touching the speaker symbol on the main screen and ensure that it's not muted. If it is Mute will be ticked. Touch it to untick it.

2. If mute is not ticked and the volume is turned up touch tools on the main screen and then settings, then language and select a voice and then OK. If the voice file is not corrupted it should work then.

3. If the file is corrupted you'll have to go the garmin website and if you haven't already registered the satnav you'll have to do so. Download webupdater from Follow the instructions on the website. Then click Next, Tick the voices you want on your satnav. Click Next and then Finish. Now you have the voices downloaded you can repeat the instructions in para 2 above to select the voice you want.

Garmin Nuvi won't talk. No sound when programming

If the mute is not checked, try plugging in a set of headphones. if you now hear sound, your internal speaker is blown. Please see this link:

Garmin voice command not working

I am not fimiarly with tom tom, but I do know on my garmin gps, there is a mute feature on the volume. On my mine it is on the main menu screen right after you turn it on. On yours you may have to go to a menu or something to turn the mute off.

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!

Just bought a garmin nuvi 265t. Sound and blue tooth not working

i have same problem. volume goes out - often with bluetooth connection. i THINK it THINKS I'm making a phone call so automatically mutes. Checking MUTE on or off does not work. Seems that if I power down and up, or best yet power down for a bit - volume is restored and bluetooth link (which sometimes disappears) enables again.

My garmin nuvi 205 quit talking. volume is at 100% and not on mute. beep sounds work but when in route i have no next turn or direction sounds. screen map does work.

I have a 750. I went to settings, language and restored the defaults. The Voice was blank when I went to that screen. I am not sure if the 205 has the language setup or not, but this should solve other Garmin problems. And as a bonus, if you want to solve the problems with the US, Fire Congress check out
