I have a Nuvi 650 which seems to be muted. How do I get it to talk again?


1.
  • Press the volume, the speaker icon at the bottom right of the screen showing WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  • On the volume screen there's a tick box for MUTE. If it's ticked press it and the tick will be removed. The satnav should then not be muted.
2. If this doesn't solve the problem it may be that the voice file is corrupted.
  • Press TOOLS
  • Press SETTINGS
  • Press LANGUAGE
This brings you to a screen with VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
Press VOICE and select another English speaking voice. This may solve the problem.

3. If you don't have another English speaking voice;

  • Download the latest version of Webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 and install it to your computer
  • Connect your satnav to your computer and run the Webupdater program
  • Webupdater will find any software updates for your satnav. Install them. When the installation is complete it will find optional updates including voices. Select some English speaking voices and download them to your satnav.
  • After you have disconnected your satnav from the computer you'll need to select a voice again as described in paragraph 2 above.

I have a garmin gps 260. It is only 5 months old. I have owned 2 other gramins, so I am familiar with them. My problem is that sometimes when I turn it on, it does not speak the directions, only shows...


I would do a Firmware update first...

To do that you must connect your Nuvi to you computer using the USB connector..

Go to www.Garmin.com

Update the firmware there

Next I would start with the Language

Go to Tools ......Settings.....Language check that the language chosen is one with ( TTS ) ending.

The TTS are the voice

My garmin nuvi 205 stopped talking even though the volume is on 100%. What happened and how do I fix it?


First press the speaker symbol and check that the volume is not down fully or that the mute box is not ticked. If it is press the mute box to untick it or increase the volume. Otherwise follow the instructions below.

1. Press Tools, then press Settings (or Locale on some models), then press Language. You will see a bar for Voice. Press Voice and select a different voice. If this doesn't solve the problem it's most likely because the voice file has become corrupted. To replace the corrupted file.
2. Download webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 and connect your satnav to your computer. Install webupdater and your satnav will look for updates. After it's finished it will give you an option to download voices. Click the ones you want and press next. The voices selected will be downloaded to your satnav.
When you have removed the satnav from the computer you'll need to select a voice again as described in para 1 above.

My Garmin 760 does not speak street name on the turns. How to set dthis?


On your GPS device, Touch settings>Select language>Select Voice and select the TTS(Test To Speech) man or women to speak.
Make sure the volume is up, and the mute is off.
The pre-recorded voices(those with out a persons name) have a limited vocabulary and do not speak names of locations or streets.
hope it helps you out

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 http://FireCongress.org
