I assume you checked that the mute box is not ticked. If not check it at the same place as the volume. The most likely cause is that there is no voice selected. To select a voice, press Tools, then Settings, then Language, and then Voice. If a voice is not ticked then press one to select it.

It's possible that the voice files have been corrupted and will not work. IF this is the case connect your satnav to your computer and it should automatically download the latest version of webupdater from the garmin website. When updated you will have the option to download voices. Select the ones you want and follow the prompts and they will be downloaded to your satnav. You may then have to to repeat the voice selection process described in paragraph 1 above

Why doent my gps speak s


The things you'd want to check first are:
1. the volume of your speaker is not turned off ...
2. your GPS (navigation) software supports voice navigation - directions /commands ...
3. you have (installed & selected) a navigation voice (e.g. standard or computer voice)
4. you have done a "reboot" ... or "hard reset" ... to start the software up again.
If all of these are OK ... and you previously had heard navigation voice on your GPS ... but suddenly, there's no more navigation voice, then it is possible that the navigation software (voice portion) got corrupted. If that's the case, you would want to try to restore your software from backup (using HOME), or download a copy of the navigation software from TomTom.com (for your device type/class) and install it.

Garmin navigation voice not working


First press the speaker symbol and check that the volume is not down fully or that the mute box is not ticked. If it is press the mute box to untick it or increase the volume. Otherwise follow the instructions below.

1. Press Tools, then press Settings (or Locale on some models), then press Language. You will see a bar for Voice. Press Voice and select a different voice. If this doesn't solve the problem it's most likely because the voice file has become corrupted. To replace the corrupted file.
2. Download webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 and connect your satnav to your computer. Install webupdater and your satnav will look for updates. After it's finished it will give you an option to download voices. Click the ones you want and press next. The voices selected will be downloaded to your satnav.
When you have removed the satnav from the computer you'll need to select a voice again as described in para 1 above.

My OnStar navigation no longer gives voice prompts for turns and such. Was working fine, radio mutes down but then no voice prompts play. Just started in middle of a drive. How do I get the audio voice...


I was told by on star that if you leave the drivers door open for 90 seconds and then lock all of the doors and wait until the next day the system will reset itself. I know this sounds like smoke and mirrors but it does work. Please let me know. Hope this helps.

ok this is what I just found concerning your issue.
Now this is just the beginning so Im sending this complete in sections for you.
  • Turn ON the ignition. The Cadillac emblem screen appears on the navigation radio.
  • Press the POWER/VOLUME button on the radio.
  • When the navigation disclaimer screen appears, press the I AGREE button on the display.
  • Press the NAV button on the radio. The display should show the current position of the vehicle. The navigation map should be clear and have clear color.
  • Press the voice switch on the steering wheel. Speak a valid voice command. The system should repeat your command and then perform the function.
  • Does the system operate normally?

    No Voice Guidance


    Are you sure the volume was up? There is a scroll wheel on the top right side of the unit (as you face it). Make sure it is turned all the way up towards the top of the GPS. You should see yellow bars in the right of the unit indicating the volume level. Also, when you turn the unit on, there is a button on the bottom right that looks like a wrench. Tap this, then press the down arrow on the bottom right. You will see an icon that says, "Volume." Tap it, then check that the "Navigation" volume level is where you want it to be (normally 100%, but that is up to you).
