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.

I have a nuvi 750 that I bought used and it started out silent even though the audio was On. Mine responds to gentle jarring. Maybe yours might.

My garmin nuvi 205 is not talking


hello. Begin by turning the volume all the way on. It is the little dial on the upper right side of the garmin. If that doesn't give you sound, return the unit as it is under warranty.

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.

My garmin nuvi 205 has no sound with volume @ 100%


Whenever these devices start acting up, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205. Also, use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device.

I hope that helps.

My garmin nuvi 205 quit talking. volume is at 100% and not on mute. beep sounds work but when in route i have no next turn or direction sounds. screen map does work.


I have a 750. I went to settings, language and restored the defaults. The Voice was blank when I went to that screen. I am not sure if the 205 has the language setup or not, but this should solve other Garmin problems. And as a bonus, if you want to solve the problems with the US, Fire Congress check out http://FireCongress.org
