Hello Sallilou,

If you deleted the voice files without backing them up you can try running the Garmin WebUpdater software. This program updates the operating software for your GPS and can be used to update maps and other files. It may be possible to reinstall the voice files using WebUpdater. (To download the WebUpdater software go here.)

Some of the Garmin products do have voice files available for download via the Garmin website. (Namely the Quest product.) However the Nuvi 200W does not appear to have such files immediately available for download.

If you aren't able to update the voice files this way I would suggest you give Garmin a call directly.

Best Regards,
Ken

How do I delete maps from Garmin Nuvi 765


Connect the Nuvi to the PC with the supplied USB cable. After about a minute, the computer should recognize the Nuvi under Windows and assign it a drive letter. Double-click on the drive letter and view the directory in the Nuvi. Look for a subdirectory labeled "Garmin". Double click on the Garmin subdirectory. Look for the file named "gmapprom.img". This is the map file. This will be a very large file, around 1GB. I would suggest making a backup of this file on your PC in case a future map upgrade fails. Once the file is backed up you can go ahead and delete it. You have now freed up memory for a new map. You can also delete unused voices in the voice subdirectory. to free up additional memory.

Accidentally deleted voice nuvi250 garmin maps I have them updated, but can not find the voice, the explanations are in English. please help. thanks


The voice may not be deleted. The procedure below gives describes the steps to get the voice back even if it's deleted.
1. Press the Volume (Speaker symbol) in the bottom right corner and check that the mute box is not ticked. If it is press it and it will be ok. Also check that the volume isn't fully down.
If that doesn't solve the problem it may be because the voice file is not selected or has become corrupted or deleted.

2. 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 or been deleted. To replace the corrupted/deleted file.
3. 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 2 above.

Can not get voice comands


if you mean like "turn right on Madison" as an example, you must have the tts voice selected ...that is the computer generated voices...it will not work with human voices....


go in the system setting and go to the voice option, and see if you have any TTS voices...if not, they may have been deleted..if so, go HERE and download the web updater and 1st see if there are any updates, then after that it will give you an option to add voices...just select one or some that are TTS...after there loaded to your gps, go back in the voice option and change it to one of the TTS voices.

if you mean you have no sound at all, post back and i will help you further.

I have a Magellan Maestro 4250 and touch screen not responding


Yes. The hard reset is the little pinhole on the left. Just use a pin and poke it. It should bring everything back to factory default and all saved info, addresses, routes etc. will be deleted.

There are no speaking directions on my TomTom GO720 e.g. for 'turn left' or 'take the next exit' or 'continue for 3 miles'. It only beeps for speed cameras etc. We have ticked all the boxes on the sound...


Hi there

As the TomTom is making beeping sounds, its a good indication that its not a hardware fault, it sounds to me its a software issue.

What you could do is try to reinstall the voices on your device. To do this, follow these steps:-

I presume you have TomTom Home installed already, if not you can download it from
http://www.tomtom.com/home

STEP 1 Make a Backup
  • Connect your TomTom to the computer and switch it on
  • Open TomTom Home
  • Click on 'backup and restore' and make a backup if you haven't done so already
Once the backup has been made, please do the following:-

STEP 2 Remove the existing voice files
  • Open My Computer, you will see the TomTom as two removable drives, one will be the internal memory and one will be for the SD card slot on the device.
  • Click into the Internal memory drive, you should see a whole load of files and folders.
  • You should see a folder called LoquendoTTS or Loquendo, click into this folder and delete the contents (all the files and folders inside the loquendo folder)
  • Go back to the root directory of the TomTom and delete the folder 'Voices'

STEP 3 Download and Reinstall the voices via TomTom Home
  • Go back to TomTom Home
  • Click on Add Maps, traffic and Voices
  • Select Voices. Loacate the voice of Jane and Tim and add them to your device
  • Go back to the main menu of TomTom Home, click on Add Maps, traffic and Voices -> Computer Voices and install the voice of Kate or Simon (UK English computer voices)
  • Close TomTom Home and also Close it from the system tray. (in the bottom right hand corner of your screen down by the computer clock, you should see a red icon for TomTom Home, Right click on it and choose 'exit')
STEP 4 Install the Clear Flash Tool from TomTom
  • Once Home has closed completely, please download and install the clear flash tool from:- http://www.tomtom.com/updates/clear_flash/clear_flash.exe (Home must be completely closed, otherwise it may not install correctly)
  • Accept the license agreement and keep pressing the Next arrow until the clear flash tool has installed.
  • Your device will start flashing to say there is some activity on your device
  • When your device has finished flashing on the screen (might take a minute), use the 'safely remove hardware' feature of your PC to disconnect the TomTom
  • Switch the TomTom off then take it out of the dock.
STEP 5 Test the voices

  • Switch the TomTom back on, but not connected to the dock
  • Let it load up to the main navigation screen
  • Tap onto the menu and tap onto 'Change Preferences -> Voice Preferences'.
  • Select a non-computer voice i.e. Jane or Tim and press test. You should now hear the voice instruction
  • Try selecting the voice of Kate or Simon i.e. the computer voices, and press test, you should now hear the computer voice.
This should get the voices working again, if not it might be worth giving TomTom Support a call and they can talk you through it.

Hope this works for you

regards

The Warlock
