There are several updates / upgrades for the Gamin nuvi line GPS units. All come directly from the Garmin website at www.garmin.com. All the updates requires a computer with a USB port, USB cable included with the GPS and the GPS itself.

Go to:

http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

This page is the home of the Garmin WebUpdater. Follow the detailed steps to update your nuvi's firmware. It's quick, painless and best of all, free.

The next step is to update (or even change the country) street level maps to the lastest version. There are a couple of options available. A "nuMaps Onetime" purchase of a single map area (ie North America 2011, Europe 2011, etc.) for as little as $70, "nuMaps Lifetime" which for about $120, provides up to four (4) updates per year, for life of the nuvi (which is a pretty good deal!) and finally, depending on a couple of variables such as date of purchase, you might be eligible for a one time free upgrade. All three of these options are explained in detail at:

http://www.garmin.com/updatemaps/

Lastly, if you have any questions related to your nuvi, maps, firmware, or how to obtain or install them, you can telephone (or email if you wish) Garmin Customer Support for free, expert help using the link below:

Nuvi 205 voice stopped working


I had the same problem. I went onto Garmin.com and attached the Nuvi to the computer using a cord that I had for my blackberry phone. Once connected, I turned on the Nuvi and ran the update tool. The update tool will reinstall the voices. This seemed to work the first time. I have had to do this twice now since I received the Nuvi 205 on December 26, 2008 (it's February 13, 2009)
