1. Are you sure the volume setting is all the way up?

2. Are you sure the sound isn't muted?

3. Have you tried a pair of headphones in the headphone jack? If the headphones have sound, your internal speaker is bad. If you don't feel like sending it back for repair, you can purchase a FM transmitter like those used on IPODs and CDplayers and plug into your GPS's headphone jack and play the audio through your car's FM stereo.

4. If you don't hear sound from the headphone jack, most likely the audio output section is defective and you'll need to send it back to Garmin to be repaired.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Voice on my Garmin nuvi 600/650 is crackling in the beginning and then not coming in at all


This is a common problem that I have repaired hundreds of times. It's caused by a defective, intermittent speaker. If you listen to the sound through the headphone jack, you'll find that the sound is good.

No sound


Check the audio output setting on the nuvi. There is a possibility that the FM Transmitter setting has been turned on or that the device has been muted.
To check the audio output setting:
  1. Touch the Speaker icon below the Wrench icon.
  2. At the bottom of the screen, touch Audio Output.
  3. Make sure that the Internal Speaker is selected and touch OK (660, 670, 680, and 5000 models only).
  4. Make sure that the MUTE box does not have a check mark in it. If it does, touch the box to clear the selection.
  5. Make sure the volume level is at a reasonable percent level.

If you bought it last November, it may still be under warranty. You should call Garnin and see if they will replace it for you free of charge. www.garmin.com

If it's no longer covered under warranty, then I would try plugging in a set of headphones into the headphone jack and listen for audio there.

If you hear audio there, then your internal speaker is bad. I have seen this problem on many Nuvi's.

Garmins Nuvi 350 - voice interactive lost


I have the same problem with my Nuvi 350. It's only about 2 months old and the sound went. I turned it on the other day to use it and the sound did not sound right, it sounded like the speaker was blown. I turned it off and turned it back on and that was it, the sound was gone. I did everything possible and can't get the sound to come back. I called Garmin and now I have to send it in for repair. I looked around the web and noticed that Garmins have big issues with the sound going on the units. I hope they fix that issue.

Audiobooks on a Garmin Nuvi 650 GPS


I just read on the Garmin website that only regular MP3 files will work -- not books or music purchased through iTunes.
