    exact same problem, looking for a fix.

    Nuvi 350 about 8 months old, lost all sound without any warning. Downloaded software update and new voice software but still no sound at all from the unit. I suspect the speacker is blown as others have said. What is troubling is the warranty period is only 6 months. This is a known defect that the campany is going to duck. These units are not cheap -- I expected a LOT better than this from Garmin. Bad product and bad customer service kills a company.

    I have the same problem with the sound just all of a sudden gone. Very disappointed that it would go bad this soon and unless something is done---Iam done with Garmin prducts.

    Purchased ours the end of November 2008, now in January 2009 and sound has stopped completely. I wish I would have known about this issue. I doubt we will buy another garmin. Hope they resolve this issue.

    Same problem as all the rest. Sound is intermittant- plugged external earpiece into the jack and seems to work - This is the last Garmin i will ever buy. I love it when the company knows it has a problem, then ducks out and expects you to pay $175. for a repair. I hope this company goes out of business for practices like that. NEVER

    My Garmin Nuvi 360 was working great until the audio just quit on me. It's only 15 months old but beyond warrenty so now I'm stuck with a rather expensive device that doesn't work properly. I have tried every imaginable setting I could think of and everything works but the internal speaker. It works with headphones but who wantst to drive around with a head set on all the time. Also have lost the ability to use it as a blue tooth which is one of the reasons I bought it in the first place.

    If anyone has any suggestions please help. Mean time - I will advise NO one buy a Garmin product!

    If your unit is out of warranty, email me at ks3r at sharc dot net for a repair quote to replace your speaker. I have references.

    You say you can't hear the voice, but can you hear MP3 audio and the touch response tones?

    If all sound is gone, have you tried listening with headphones plugged in? If you can hear sound through the headphones, then the internal speaker is bad.

I have the same problem with my Nuvi 350. It's only about 2 months old and the sound went. I turned it on the other day to use it and the sound did not sound right, it sounded like the speaker was blown. I turned it off and turned it back on and that was it, the sound was gone. I did everything possible and can't get the sound to come back. I called Garmin and now I have to send it in for repair. I looked around the web and noticed that Garmins have big issues with the sound going on the units. I hope they fix that issue.

The Nuvi 755T does not have bluetooth capability. See this link to see the specifications of the 755T from the Garmin website:

Bluetooth icon missing

The Nuvi 750 does NOT include bluetooth capability. I don't know what you saw, or what you think you saw, but Garmin's website is very clear on this issue. NO BLUETOOTH WITH THE NUVI 750

I have a garmin nuvi and the cable that you put into your cigarette lighter will not work. I changed the fuse and it still will not keep the unit charged. I can charge it on my computer with a usb cable....

Do you see a lightning bolt symbol over the battery bar graph? This indicates that its charging. If it's under warranty, please contact Garmin on their website. and call them. No need to worry about this if its under warranty. Send them your charger too.
