Dear Henrych, you may have the volume all the way up, but there could be two possibilities on why this is happening.

1. Please perform a software update of the GPS. Possible software corruption on voice files and/or sound output corruption may be causing this.

2. Hardware failure at the sound output. Since you have not disclosed any more info about this try the following, if you can hear sound tones while pressing the touch screen then the sound output subsystem of the speakers (internal/external) is fine and I would check the software update. (Settings->System->Touch Tones->Turn off/on) The actual checking of the internal speaker could be done by trying to play a multimedia file while on headphones. This could give a better indication on why it is happening.

Please remember that if you are in the EU products have 24 months warranty so if you are entitled to a repair go to the service center first.

Regards,
Please dont forget to rate this solution if you found it to be helpfull.

Garmin 760 stopped talking was fine yesterday


Make sure the volume isn't muted. There is a separate volume adjustment for Navigation (voice) in addition to media player. Can be a bad speaker. Make sure a TTS voice is selected. More info at these links:

I cant here the device even if I have the volume all the way up. when i touch the volume speaker it sends me to the setting of the car radio to the device


Shut off the bluetooth if your not using it, if it has one. Second do a reset. That may solve the issue. Go into the sound settings its probably defaulted to the radio.

Bluetooth icon missing


The Nuvi 750 does NOT include bluetooth capability. I don't know what you saw, or what you think you saw, but Garmin's website is very clear on this issue. NO BLUETOOTH WITH THE NUVI 750

No Sound


You might have just turned the volume all the way down. Page 4 of your manual tells you how to adjust your volume.

Nuvi 660 Volume


i had the same problem with my unit. I went back to The Source and they told me it was normal. I had a garmin streetpilot before the nuvi and the sound was much better.
The streetpilot has 2 speakers and the nuvi only has one. I had another problem with my nuvi and I exchanged it for another one and the volume problem is gone.
Use the male voices over the womans they seem to be recorded louder.
My problem is over

About my garmin nuvi 660


Make sure you don't have the sound muted. Have you tried plugging in a set of headphones into the headphone jack? If you can hear sound with the headphones, most likely, the internal speakers have failed. If you still can't hear any sound, the audio output stage on the motherboard has failed. In either case, you will need to send the unit back for repair. Be sure to have your serial number handy. Register it online https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/marketing/register.htm
if you haven't already done so.

Read the manual and you will be able to connect Bluetooth TO 660 , menu Bluetooth active , be sure you LG phone is active on his bluetooth, connect and recognize will be done , you will see.

GARMIN 660 is working with a battery and also with your car adapter. I don't see any reason why it would not work on battery ?.

Your issue is not clear concerning the battery ?
