After upgrading the Garmin 1490T Lifetime firmware and maps, there is no sound. No voices, no sound with toutching the display.


Hello rudolf,

Maybe this will help you some. I have found you the complete manual which covers most of the models of the Garmin Nuvi. It is the full manual from start to finish with complete operating procedures as well as schematics, operation instructions complete with pictures, and trouble shooting section and even other contact numbers to deal direct with Garmin, if your model is not covered in this manual.


Here is the link for you:

My garmin 1490t have no sound.the sound is activated. thanks


I would suggest you install the latest updates from the Garmin WebUpdater, and then continue on in the WebUpdater to install English-Jill voice, and set your Garmin GPS to Auto/Car mode (not pedestrian mode), and set the voice to English-Jill, and hopefully your sound will work after that (mine did....).... :)

Purchased a GARm-NU-Map 3/30/11. Rece'vd today and my computer is telling me that it doesn't recognize my Nuvi when plugged in to my USB . How can I make theDVD work? It wont sync.


you need to install the mapsource program which will in turn install the drivers for your nuvi, so that the pc recognises it. It should have come on the dvd you mention. if the dvd isnt auto running when you put it into your computer then open computer or my computer and right click on the dvd drive and click autorun

A have a Garm nuvi 255WT that is supposed to include spoken street names. It speaks well enough, in any language I want, but it only tells me when to turn left, right, etc. It never includes the street...


You need to make sure that the voice you have chosen is a Text to Speech voice (it will say TTS next to it). These voices will speak the street names. The others will not. See if this helps.

My garmin nuvi will not shut down. The screen is white. Is there a reset button on the unit?


In some nuvi models there is a reset button.But in some nuvi models there is no reset button.you have mentioned only garmin nuvi but not mentioned the model of the garmin nuvi.But still i will mention the reset button location of some garmin nuvi models.Hope that helps you.
The reset button/procedure for garmin nuvi models
In order to reset Garmin device or enter into maintenance mode, perform one of the following procedures:

Power off Garmin unit. Press on continuously the upper top left corner of screen and then power on the unit by pressing once on the Power button. You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press “Yes” to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
above works on Garmin Nuvi 660, 680 series.
Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen, and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press “Yes” to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
above works on Garmin nuvi 200, 250, 360 750, 760 series unit. Garmin Nuvi 360 on how to perform the hidden reset function.
Reset button on the bottom of the nuvi backside.

Garmin nuvi 300 asking for pin number


You only have (2) solutions:

1. Take the unit to where the secure location where the PIN was set and it will not ask your for the PIN. Then you can delete it or change it.

2. The PIN is located in non-volatile memory and can not be reset except by the factory.


Attention FIxya: Any other solution promotes hacking. The above options are from the user manual.
