1. First make sure that the volume is not fully down or the mute box ticked. To do this press the volume setting, (the speaker symbol bottom right of the screen which shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)

2. If that doesn't solve the problem
Press TOOLS (The spanner symbol) or LOCALE (The blue symbol) on models that don't have a TOOLS symbol.

  • Next press SETTINGS (the spanner symbol)
  • Press LANGUAGE the lips symbol
This brings you to a screen with 3 items on it; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
Press VOICE and select an English speaking voice. That should solve the problem.

If not it may be that the voice file is corrupted and needs to be replaced.
To replace the voice file;
Download WEBUPDATER from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
Connect your satnav to your computer and run WEBUPDATER
The software will search for updates to your operating system. If it finds some they will be installed. Then it will give you an option to download extras including voice files. Select only voices from English speaking countries. When you have selected the ones you want click next and they will be downloaded to your satnav. After you have disconnected your satnav from your computer you'll need to go back to step 2 above and select the voice you want to use.

Then go to tools and find the voices portion. choose your language, install at the bottom and then check to make sure your Garmin has a voice chosen. if it does ... check to see if the device beeps and that mute is off. and if it does not even beep then you must have a bad speaker

Garmin wont talk


Thank you for contacting Garmin International. If you are not receiving verbal instructions from your unit there are a few things we can try to correct it. One would be to make sure there is a voice selected. You can check by pressing Tools, Settings, and Languages. If the box associated with the voice language is empty, press it and select a voice with a proper name after it and hit OK. Then you'll be fine. If it says "No Voice Found" please download and run Webupdater and you will be able to download the voices again. I hope this helps and here are some instructions for downloading that program.


These instructions follow what I experienced getting the update file. Based on computer settings you may have a slightly different experience.


From Ed. I got mine to work by completely depleteing the battery. It talked again during the process.

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
