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.

I'm not getting verbal directions from my Garmin nuvi 260W. How can I fix this problem. A day ago it was working properly.


If you are not receiving any sound on your N?vi 2xx thefirst thing to check is that the sound is not muted. To ensure that your unitssound is not muted please perform the following: Turn the device on Press the Volume button on the 'Where To?', 'View Map'screen Ensure the Mute box is not 'checked' If the mute button is not 'ticked', you will need to changethe voice to ensure that the preset voice is not faulty: Turn the device on Touch the Tool icon Touch Settings Touch Language Touch the language voice next to Voice Scroll through and select another appropriate voice
If changing the voice is not helping you will need to ensure that you arerunning the latest software which can be done by installing a program calledWebUpdater. WebUpdater can be installed via the link below:

The speakers in the Nuvi series are prone to failure. I recommend www.sharcnet-usa.com as a repair service.

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.

No voice prompts on my new nuvi 750- volume level not muted.


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.

Garmin Nuvi 200 Voice no longer working


Does your Nuvi 200 have a headphone jack? If so, try that with a pair of headphones. If you hear sound, then your internal speaker went bad. It's a known problem with the Nuvi.
