Question about Garmin nuvi 250W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I have a Garmin Nuvi 750 gps. Purchased online on Amazone in 2008 for my 81 year old dad. He loves it. But he just told me tonight the woman's voice has not been working for a long long time. Device beeps when putting in an address etc. But no woman's voice. We didn't do anything to the device to alter this. Can you help?

1. Check that the volume has not been muted by touching the speaker symbol on the main screen. If mute is ticked touch it to unselect it.

2. If this is not the problem on the main screen touch tools, then settings, then language and select a voice. If you didn't download extra voices there's probably only one there.

3. If that doesn't solve the problem the voice file may be corrupted and need to be downloaded again. Connect your Satnav to the pc. Go to http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp and download the latest version of webupdater. After the software is updated click next, Tick the voices you want to select them, Tick next and then Finish. This will download the voices selected to your Satnav. You will have to repeat para 2 above to select the voice you want. You can experiment and try out different voices to see which you prefer.

Lost voice on my garmin 750


Look under settings>language>voice. Select American English and it will work again. The same thing happened to me this week on my new Garmin 750 and I took a couple of days to figure it out. Hope this helps.

I had the same problem after I had my Nuvi 750 for a few months.  The voice just stopped.  I called Garmin and they replaced it under warranty.

No car radio / stereo for use with Garmin nuvi 750 GPS


Every Garmin Nuvi unit I've seen has a (loud) built-in speaker. The only demand our 250s and 265 make of the vehicle is a 12V power supply (and they'll even work without that for a while, until the battery goes flat).

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
