Question about Garmin nuvi 250W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I have a Garmin 780. It is not muted. I tried

I have a Garmin 780. It is not muted. I tried turning up the volume level. It still would not work. I took a trip this weekend and the garmine gave perfect direction. However, my front seat passenger had to tell me when to make my turns. It was a frustrating trip. I am disappointed. I am going to take another trip next week. Please respond as soon as possible.

No voice prompt when time to turn direction


Make sure volume is up and not muted. Make sure that you have a voice selected in the voice menu. Under settings, make sure that you have guidance checked. When you press the buttons on the screen, do you hear beeps? If not, your speaker could be bad. More sound troubleshooting here:

No voice insruction


Check that you haven't accidentally set the volume control to "mute". Usually this is a small checkbox below the volume slider and if checked there will be no sound regardless of the volume setting.

The audio on our Nuvi 780 just quit working the maps still load and runs fine, just cannot hear anything.


Hi,

did you check in the system settings, to see if the volume has been decreased or muted ?
Failing this, the speaker has stopped working, and needs replacing, unless theres a seperate external speaker socket you could use, with a headphone or external speaker.

Hi,

Touch tools > settings > language > voice.

Voice- changes the language for voice promts.
Languages noted with a persons name are (tts)
text to speak voices.

which have an extensive vocabulary and pronounce
the street names as you approach turns.

The pre-recoreded voices (those without a persons name)
have a limited vocabulary and (do not speak names of locations or streets)

Text language- change all on-screen text to the selected language,
changing the text language does not change the language of user entered data
or map data, such as street names.

Keyboard- select the keyboard for your language,
you can also change the keyboard language mode from any keyboard
by touching the mode button

Adjusting the volume levels
From the "menu" page touch "volume"
to adjust the volume.
To adjust the volume levels for the media player
and the navigation prompts,
please click.

Tools > settings > Volume > Restore
Restore will, restore to origional volume levels.


You should be good now

Regards
Richard.

You can check "settings", then look for the picture of "lips". This is the language area. I always just select American English. You can set whatever you like. Also, check your volume setting. Just touch the "speaker" on the main screen and up will come the volume. Increase to a level you like. I use 90 percent.

This will work--go to Tools, Settings, Language and then select a Language that has TTS following it--this is the text to speech choice. Choose English TTS Jill if you like to hear the woman.
