I had the same problem. I went onto Garmin.com and attached the Nuvi to the computer using a cord that I had for my blackberry phone. Once connected, I turned on the Nuvi and ran the update tool. The update tool will reinstall the voices. This seemed to work the first time. I have had to do this twice now since I received the Nuvi 205 on December 26, 2008 (it's February 13, 2009)

Just bought a 205 and get no voice or sounds whatsoever


Whenever these devices start acting up, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205. Also, use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device.

I hope that helps.

You have actidenttly muted your voice. You hit the menu button, and hit on volume. There is a check box next to the mute, uncheck that check mark.

My garmin nuvi 205 no longer has voice but it still beeps when I use the touch screen so the speaker works. What could be the problem? It is a year old and worked until yesterday. Everything else is fine.


sounds like the driver for the speaker circuit is defective, call Garmin, since it is only one year old they may repair it for free to protect there good name, I assume u don't have the speaker turned off, this can be checked by going into the tool symbol and selecting sound volume.

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
