    I was having problems with my Garmin c330 so I called Tech Support. Since I was only on software version 5.9, they told me to go to the WebUpdater. So, after doing this, I am now getting on-screen directions correctly, but only when I reach my destination does the voice notify me "Arrival at Destination". Is there an audio fix that I should have run through WebUpdater, as well?

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.

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

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!

I have lost my sound on my garmin 750 gps


I had a similar problem on my vacation. the voice stopped working suddenly. in my case i could get it working again by reselecting the voice (american/british etc) in the language section. for some reason it had reset to blank.

but i still cannot get the text to speech to work.

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

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.

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
