    Have Garmin 760 about 3 months old. After two trip in the past month, I lost all sound. The GPS is routing proper but no sound thru the FM radio. I tried it out in two different vehicles. I tried everything I could think of and nothing works .

    Exact same problem. The sound on my Nuvi 760 worked for about 1 week, then it just quit. My FM was not enabled, so that was not the solution for me. It is not muted and the volume is up to 80. Help, please.

I'm not a hundred percent sure but you guys could try this. Click on the tools menu; select settings, language, and on the voice textbox, select whatever language you want. It might work, and then again it might not. Good luck.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 770 that won't "speak" when navigating


Frequently (about 20% of the time) when I have my Nuvi 770 plugged in, in the car and I turn it on, it gets stuck at the start up screen where it says, “Loading maps” I wait several minutes and it never completes. Then I turn it off and turn it back on and it comes right up, but with no voice. When I go to Tools > Setup > Language it shows no language and I cannot select one. I have to plug my Nuvi 770 into the computer, run web updater, it detects that I already have the software loaded and I select the option to download it again. When it has completed, I unplug the Nuvi and then go to Tools > Setup > Language and select American English.

Garmin 760 - No Voice Directions


Go back into your tools and settings and re select the voice of american jack and see if it comes back on.
I lost the voice 2 days ago while on a trip from tenn. to florida and this fixed it. we never shut off the voice but somehow while using bluetooth or FM trans it shut off voice transmiting.

NO SOUND ON GARMIN 750


I had the same problem. I fixed it by going to settings, then to language, and then entering American English into the Voice category. Hope this helps.

Garmin 760 - No Voice Directions


Check The system settings, I had to download the newest version of the audio software for the voice to work. The software vanished once and I had to re-download it using the web updater.

Hopefully it will stick around this time.

When I load the new software the voice works.

My Garmin Nuvi 350 sound not working


I had this problem with the 760. Solved by going to settings>language and discovering I had no choice for "voice". I pressed that selection and picked american english and my problem was solved. Garmin support said sometimes the program gets corrupted and that choice needs to be made again.

Got a solution for you:

You need to set the language properly in order to get the speech for street name

Go to setup --> Locale - Voice Language

Select language with TTS (Text-To_Speech) next to it:

ie:
American English-Jack (TTS )
American English-Jill (TTS)
Australia English-Karen (TTS)
