If you can hear audio through the headphone jack but not the internal speaker jack, then the speaker is bad.

This is a problem I have seen many times before. I will be posting an article soon on how to replace the internal speaker, however this is not a repair that just anyone can do.

You have to have skills in dissassembly & soldering.

    Also, the speaker is a 1.35" diameter, low profile speaker. The original speaker has a blue & black wire running from the speaker to a 2 position plug, which plugs into the main board. I would salvage the wires from the original speaker to make use of the original plug. I'll be posting a procedure on how to take apart the Nuvi and replace the speaker. Again, this is a procedure for those with dissassembly & soldering skills and units no longer under warranty.

MY NUVI 660 SUDDENLY SOUNDS LIKE IT'S TALKING IN A CAN....VERY TINNY AND IRRITATING.


Most likely the speaker has failed. try plugging in a set of headphones. If the sound is good there, then the speaker has failed and needs to be replaced. If you need more information, you can look here:

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.

No sound from Garmin nuvi 760 by any method


Sounds like your speaker went south. Since your fm transmitter is working I'll be your earphone jack is too. So you could always use an earphone. Only other option is a speaker replacement.
