    Same here. Absolutely no sound whatsoever out of the blue.

    I didn't find a volume wheel on the speaker. But it is now working for one of 2 reasons: Garmin sent me a new plug-in speaker (under warranty) and I downloaded a new voice. But where is the volume wheel?

Do you use the plug in adapter with the speaker in the plug?
Check it, there is a small volume wheel on it, probably sent it to zero whilst unplugging or plugging it....also check if the power plug is fully seated in the GPS

Lost audio


1. First, make sure that the sound is not checked to be muted.
2. Make sure that you have a text-to-speech (TTS) voice selected in the language menu.
3. When you press a function on the screen, do you hear a beep? If so, this indicates that the sound is not muted and that the audio circuits are working. If you don't hear any beeps when pressing a function on the screen AND there are no voice directions, then I would suspect a defective speaker. More information can be found here:

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:

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!

Audio directions


You must ensure that your volume is not on mute. You need to tap on where the words are, not on the map, until the volume slide bar pops up. You may have to tap in different places until it does. If your volume is set normally, you need to check on which voice you have picked. It's under the options. Pick a different voice and test out the directions.

Voice stopped working


This may be a cold solder connection or mechanicaly defective component on the circuit board. There are many parts in that unit that can cause the described fault.

First, try pluging in an exteral mic to check the mic itself is not broke. Next Go to the device manager to check for driver problems (control panel, system, Hardware look for yellow ?'s) Check control panel, Sounds and Audio, audio, sound recording, volume. There are just too many ways to mess with the sound settings, and they often seem to just mute themselves!
Good luck
