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 garmin will not talk to me. I have the volume at 100%


get the Garmin Express program: Garmin Express
watch this video:



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

Garmin Nuvi won't talk. No sound when programming


If the mute is not checked, try plugging in a set of headphones. if you now hear sound, your internal speaker is blown. Please see this link:

My Garmin nuvi 205 has stopped talking. Is this fixable? Thanks for the help.


You have actidenttly muted your voice. You hit the menu button, and hit on volume. There is a check box next to the mute, uncheck that check mark.

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!

He would not have nothing to say if you did not set a "where to"

Few words , you mean "turn right in 500 ft" . Its normal your unit type has only Voice prompts and not TTS (SPEAK STREETS NAMES) .

For your MP3 palyer it should work. Did you play with something in the setup.

Make sure you have the latest update 5.20.
Please use the GARMIN WEB UPDATER for best result.
