Question about Garmin iQue 3600 GPS Receiver

No sound / voice when getting directions

When getting directions from the 3600 GPS, I don't have a voice. Only messages on the screen, when to turn and how far. I checked and the sound is on all the way but still no voice.

How can I fix this problem and get "my" GPS voice back?

    I just note my IQ3600 gps' instruction voice is not working. it was working beforfe. I am not sure is this a part of the stupid Garmin's new software and its royalty fee that Garmin want the user to pay for. My experience is don't buy another Garmin prodcut because it is stupid design, costly and slow. I think I will go for the Magellan.

I had same problem a year ago while I was using it in the UK.
I think voice is contained in internal memory which was corrupted when battery went flat.
Problem was solved when I got home by doing a "hot sync".
If that does not work you will have to reinstall voice from your original disk

SOURCE: Late response on turn-by-turn voice directions- garmin nuvi 760

Hi, my 760 had the same problem, and a stutter when speaking street names. I fixed both by upgrading the software to v4.60 using the Garmin Webupdater.

SOURCE: Screen replacement for GarminiQue 3600

I have a few Garmin 3600s with fried firmware but perfect screens. I've replaced batteries in quite a few of these units, and screen replacement is also definitely do-able by an amateur. I would be happy to sell anyone a Garmin 3600 for $25, including shipping.

SOURCE: no sound whatsoever on GPS

Maybe you have turned the FM modle on, which means the sound can only comes out from your stereo system.

No voice prompt when time to turn direction


Make sure volume is up and not muted. Make sure that you have a voice selected in the voice menu. Under settings, make sure that you have guidance checked. When you press the buttons on the screen, do you hear beeps? If not, your speaker could be bad. More sound troubleshooting here:

How do I turn the speaker on?


You can turn on (or off) the voice guidance ... to announce the driving instructions.

Make sure you select (in your Speaker Preferences) ... the internal speaker ... your Sound is turned ON, your Volume Slider turn up (high), and select (a Voice Preference) as a computer voice... and select the ENABLE Voice option.
In Speech Preference, select the situations which you want instructions/directions/warnings to be read out loud.

Garmin Nuvi 265 wt...how to get voice command to work?


Hi,
this may require two sessions but - here goes:
1- turn the unit on - select the VOICE icon on the opening screen - triple check it isn't muted and change it to 90% voice volume.
If this doesn't give you sound WHILE DRIVING - it won't give you voice unless you're moving or driving.

Then - turn the unit off - Turn it back on- - as it is starting up - and blank- place your thumb in the LOWER RIGHT CORNER of the blank Screen.

this will open this window:
SELECT - YES - it will reboot and your minor settings will be lost - like saved address and favorites - not your updated maps.

This will reset you to default NEW -
When done - sound will be as it was when new if no sound - return for repair.

How can I get everything in English please help!


Do you want to change the language of the VOICE or the WORDS IN THE SCREEN? These two are independent from each other and need to be set up by separate.

1) To change the VOICE, you need to download an ENGLISH VOICE.
a) Start TomTom Home on your computer.
b) Plug in the TomTom dock to a USB port on your computer and plug in your TomTom GPS on the dock
c) Turn on the GPS and when asked "connect to computer" answer "yes" (you may not be asked if you want to connect; TomTom Home amy detect your GPS and connect to it automatically). If your GPS is not connecting to TomTom Home, turn the GPS off, turn it upside down and press the "reset" button for 7 seconds, place the GPS back on the dock and turn it on. It should automatically connect to TomTom Home now.
d) On the TomTom Home software, click on the icon labeled "Add Traffic, Voice, cameras..."
e) Click on the icon labeled "voices"
f) Click on the icon labeled "computer voices"
g) Click on any of the voices that says "English" on the second ("language") column; download and install the voice
h) Go to the TomTom Home top menu and under "DEVICE" choose "DISCONNECT DEVICE". Wait a few seconds until the GPS communication with the computer is broken and the GPS restarts. You don't need the computer anymore for now
i) On your TomTOm GPS, tap on the middle of the screen to bring the menu.
j) Touch "CHANGE PREFERENCES"
k) Touch "VOICE PREFERENCES"
l) Touch "CHANGE VOICE"
m) Select any of the voices that are in English (such as "SUSAN, English US, Computer"). After this, you can TEST the voice. Check that you can hear the voice, otherwise, you'll need to adjust the volume. We'll do this later. Touch "SELECT" to select the voice. Press "DONE" on the next 3 screens until you're back to the GPS navigation screen
n) To change the volume, tap on the LOWER LEFT rectangle. You'll get a VOLUME SLIDE. Slide it to the RIGHT to increase the volume and to the LEFT to lower it. I keep mine around 85% volume.

YOU ARE DONE SETTING UP A NEW VOICE

2) To change the LANGUAGE of the WRITTEN DIRECTIONS on the screen:
a) On your TomTom GPS screen, tap on the middle of the screen to bring the MAIN MENU on
b) Tap on the PREFERENCES icon
c) Tap on the RIGHT ARROW 7 times or until you see an icon labeled "CHANGE LANGUAGE".
d) Using the UO and DOWN arrows on the GPS screen, scroll up or down untill you see the langauges you're looking for. You'll get a screen with several languages available, including "English UK" and "English US"
d) Touch on the screen you want. The screen will automatically go back to the previous menu screen that shows the "CHANGE LANGUAGE" icon. Touch the "DONE" button.

YOU ARE ALL DONE. Now, your VOICE and all WRITTEN DIRECTIONS should be in ENGLISH.

If this didn't work, please report back so that I can provide further assistance

No audio on driving directions.


You will need to perform a hot sync to restore your voice files to the unit.

Sound


If you lost "all" sound - click the speaker icon (bottom of screen) and make sure all volume is turned up. If you lost just the voice prompt for turns etc. This happens when you have an extended period of low battery. You need to reinstall the setup CD for the iQue 3600 go through the motions and HotSync the unit - This will reload your voice files.. Jerry ... gandg22@yahoo.com
