If the test page isn't working then the plug-in didn't install properly. Make sure you meet the minimum requirements, (Internet Explorer 6+ or Firefox 1.5+ and Windows 2000, XP, or Vista, the the Mac requirement found here: http://www8.garmin.com/products/communicator/faq.jsp) Then uninstall and try to re-download the plugin from the Garmin website here: http://www8.garmin.com/products/communicator/.

If after uninstalling and reinstalling the test page still doesn't work then it's possible that something on your system is blocking its use. Go to your Internet Options and make sure your security setting are set to default for all Zones. Turn off any Anti-Virus and Firewall software to see if that helps. Otherwise to make sure that nothing is blocking the plug-in's use you could format your computer and reinstall Windows but that is a last ditch effort.

No voice in Garmin nuvi 770


Plug it into a computer, there should be a folder thats called voice in it. Sometimes if you remove the device incorrectly from a computer it can corrupt files, or sometimes people remove them by accident.
Install garmin communicator if you haven't already then
Go to http://www8.garmin.com/vehicles/voices/
and pick out some voices you might want to install. Free ones are below the premium ones.

How do i update my maps


Welcome to FixYa!

To update your Garmin device, go to this link https://my.garmin.com/maps/chooseDeviceType.htm?


  • Select your device type.
  • It will request to install the Gamin Communicator Plug-in.
  • Make sure that you connect your Garmin device to the computer before proceeding to install.
  • After the installation, it will automatically download for an updated map.

Note: Sometimes, there are no available updated maps and the update service will simply freeze. I'm not quite sure if this issue has already been fixed in Garmin's website.

To confirm if there are available maps, contact Garmin:
Monday - Thursday: 8 AM - 6 PM, Friday 8 AM - 5 PM Central Time (closed holidays)

US: 913-397-8200
US Toll Free: 1-800-800-1020

Registration of your nuvi is done online. You go to the garmin nuvi website, then register it from there. To register your nuvi, these are the steps to follow:
  1. Connect your gps device to a computer using your USB cable,
  2. Go to garmin website,
  3. Select 'support' a list will pop out,
  4. Select 'Product registration',
  5. A page will pop up for you to enter a user name and password, that is if you already have an account with garmin, but if you do not, create a new account by clicking on the Create account link.
  6. Then you enter your account information,
  7. Install the garmin communicator plug in2,
  8. It will ask for your products information, enter it and your device will be registered.
After registration, the communicator plug ins will be already installed on your nuvi. That is how you get your garmin nuvi registered.
