No voice prompts - Audio missing

Garmin StreetPilot c510 GPS Receiver
Hi,
I have a Garmin StreetPilot c510 and on the "About" screen is shows:-
Audio Version: Missing
Obviously, there are no voice prompts! This was a secondhand unit when I bought it and I suspect this is why the vendor was selling. I did not get any CD or DVD with the unit, so no way of reloading this piece of software. I have tried updating the software from Garmin website, but still the same message. Can you tell me where I can download this bit of software, as I cannot find it to download on the Garmin site? Or could someone email it to me?
Thanks all,
Dave B.

    I had to download some updated info on my Garmin Street Pilot 2720 and since then the audio is missing. How can I fix this? This is not a second-hand unit--I bought it myself.



    Thank you,

If the unit indicates "software/firmware missing", then you can only try to re-install firmware by running WebUpdater again. If it doesn't work, then the unit has to be sent to service to have it re-flashed.

To bring your Garmin 45 XL back to life ( reset ) hold down page and start untill the screen comes on. It will take up to twenty minutes to locate your available satelites..

Good luck

SOURCE: SISTEM SOFTWARE MISSING on my Garmin NUVI200 GPS

All Garmin users,

There is no easy solution for this except to return your unit to the nearest Garmin outlet. You need to have very special equipment called an E-Prom burner or writer which only Garmin have. With this equipment they re-programmed (restore) the operating system back on your specific Garmin unit and model.

The problem why anybody can't do it is because there is no way you can access your Garmin unit from a pc or mac if the operating system is lost or damage on your Garmin, for the simple reason your pc or mac can't reconize the device that is pluged in, because there are no communication platform between the two devices.

As simple as that, life with it or send your Garmin gps to an autherized professional Garmin dealer.

Hi,
Take a look at this site, http://www.garmin.be/missing.html Download and unzip the software, plug your garmin in the USB and start the updater.exe program. It gets you started again. Later on you can use the Webupdater to get possible newer software..
It worked for me and my Zumo550
Goodluck

If the software/firmware is missing, there was an error during the update of the firmware, most likely corrupt file(s) causing the unit to not being able to boot up properly.
You can try plugging it in to the computer again and re-install latest firmware version again. If your unit is unable to stay on during this process however, you'd probably need to send this unit in to service, as there isn't much else to do, as an end user.

Garmin c510 error message "No detailed maps found that support routing. The streetmap cannot be used without them" Don't have pin number! Solution?


You're unit is probably missing the gmapprom.img file (failed update maybe?).

Try contacting Garmin - if you've got registered maps they may send you another copy (although big file - 100+MB)

My Garmin gps is frozen on a screen telling me there are no maps found. I tried to reset it and put a memory card in it but nothing worked so far. Any ideas?


You're missing the file gmapprom.img on your C510 unit (possibly a failed update?).

Unless you have a backup it's contact Garmin I expect (maybe try getting a copy off someone but possible the file is locked to the unit as I have tried swapping SD cards containing maps in the past between units and no joy)..

Unlock c510


Take the unit to where your nephew was playing with it, and it will automatically unlock. Otherwise, you'll need to send it in to Garmin with the receipt from an authorized dealer.

All of the Garmin automotive GPS units that speak street names are also loaded with basic voice prompts. If one of these types of voice prompts has been selected, the voice prompts will not speak street names.

In order to change this setting on the StreetPilot c550/580, please follow these steps:
  1. In the Main Menu, tap on the Settings icon.
  2. Tap on "Locale"
  3. The second line on this screen has a picture of a mouth. To the right, the current voice for the GPS device is listed. Tap it to change the voice.
  4. Select a voice that is labeled with (TTS) at the end. These voices will speak street names.
  5. Select "OK". The voice has now been changed.
Your device should now speak street names.

Voice prompts disappeared!


It's possible that you just turned the volume all the way down. Otherwise just look into the system settings....

Voice Prompt


My husband had the same problem with his i2 Street Pilot.
He went to the Garmin web site and downloaded the latest
updated software version. You can then chose the language options, too.
