If you mean like "turn right on Madison" as an example, you must have the tts voice selected ...that is the computer generated voices...it will not work with human voices....


go in the system setting and go to the voice option, and see if you have any TTS voices...if not, they may have been deleted..if so, go HERE and download the web updater and 1st see if there are any updates, then after that it will give you an option to add voices...just select one or some that are TTS...after there loaded to your gps, go back in the voice option and change it to one of the TTS voices.

if you mean you have no sound at all, post back and i will help you further.

Then go to tools and find the voices portion. choose your language, install at the bottom and then check to make sure your Garmin has a voice chosen. if it does ... check to see if the device beeps and that mute is off. and if it does not even beep then you must have a bad speaker

THX navigation system in 2007 Lincoln MKX


Could be mute controls for the telephone. The voice for the Navigation is adjusted separately from the radio volume. If any work was done on the vehicle, like a battery disconnect, then radio controls may need to be reset.

You need to toggle through the Menu to things like screen brightness for the Navigation.

You also have a speed sensitive radio and the volume controls could be affected by these settings.

Garmin Nuvi 265 wt...how to get voice command to work?


Hi,
this may require two sessions but - here goes:
1- turn the unit on - select the VOICE icon on the opening screen - triple check it isn't muted and change it to 90% voice volume.
If this doesn't give you sound WHILE DRIVING - it won't give you voice unless you're moving or driving.

Then - turn the unit off - Turn it back on- - as it is starting up - and blank- place your thumb in the LOWER RIGHT CORNER of the blank Screen.

this will open this window:
SELECT - YES - it will reboot and your minor settings will be lost - like saved address and favorites - not your updated maps.

This will reset you to default NEW -
When done - sound will be as it was when new if no sound - return for repair.

My Garmin street pilot c550 has lost its voice, how do I get it back.


I am going to make some assumptions here. First, that the unit was working properly, giving voice directions, and now is not doing so. Second, that the volume wheel on the right side of the unit is set all the way up and you are not hearing any voice directions.

If those assumptions are correct, when you turn the unit on, press the wrench button at the bottom of the screen. Next, press the down arrow on the bottom right of the screen. Now press the "Volume" button. Make sure "Navigation" is at the level you desire (100% works well for me).

Again from the main screen, press the button marked "Locale." Next to the lip icon, make sure the correct voice (whichever you desire) is selected.

If this does not help, try resetting the unit. Remove the faceplate (there is an indentation under the top) and press the reset button on the right side of the unit. If this does not work, you can try a Master Reset, but be aware: IT WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES. To do a Master Reset, press and hold the bottom right of the screen while pressing the power button. Release both buttons when the unit resets. Let me know if this helps.

It just stopped talking. No voice directions, on


Hit the menu buttom, go to settings, then go to volume and see if it is muted. Sounds like the mute or volume down button got inadvertantly hit and turned down or muted. If this does not work, turn the unit over and look under the fold up antenna for a reset button. Depress this button until the unit restarts and should reset the unit back to factory default settings and get you on your way. Good luck!!! If these don't help you, call the garmin support number at :1-800-800-1020. Hope this helps!

Audio directions


You must ensure that your volume is not on mute. You need to tap on where the words are, not on the map, until the volume slide bar pops up. You may have to tap in different places until it does. If your volume is set normally, you need to check on which voice you have picked. It's under the options. Pick a different voice and test out the directions.
