Is the sound muted? and I assume you have the volume set at maximum?

On the older Nuvi's you could try plugging in a set of headphones to see if you could hear audio. If you could, then that verified that the internal speaker is bad. On the Nuvi 2xx series there is no head phone jack so there is not an easy way to confirm if the speaker is bad.

From my experience is repairing Nuvi's I would say that your internal speaker is bad, provided all of the settings are correct. The speaker will need to be replaced. I can help you with that.

Best wishes,

you can get the manual at www.garmin.com
you'll also need to get yourself a usb cable... the normal end for the computer and i believe the other end is called a mini b connector.

SOURCE: Nuvi 205W keeps rebooting.

Your unit most likely has a firmware error, which could be due to a corrupt file. To solve it you yourself can try to update the firmware when connecting to the pc, if the unit cannot stay on enough for this to be performed, your unit will have to be sent in to service.

Hi i have a garmin 265 only 4 weeks old. i have lost all side roads and the navigation is well out. says im on the road next to me. i keep loosing gps signal also. any solutions??????????


I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265W.

Losing gps signal and poor tracking are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS need updating.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Someone took my garmin nuvi 250w can i track it?


sadly, no. garmin and most GPS devices are strictly GPS receivers, meaning they do not output any kind of signal that can be tracked. If your device has been stolen, i recommend that you register your device if it is not already registered with Garmin.

Active Sync USB OK but City Navigator won't find device.


Somewhere I read that if you do a soft reboot to the iQue M5 it will connect to the City Navigator. I did this and it seemed to work, although between downloading and uploading I had to do it again. The process of loading map set (entire US) took an extremely long time (about 3 hours). Also, if you try to receive maps, waypoints and tracks from device all at once, it chokes.
