    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.

How to change the voice on garmin 750? /


Press the wrench/tools button at the main menu. Select the icon with the lips (language). You should see (2) buttons labeled American English. The first one makes all of the text on the Nuvi in the English alphabet. The second button is for the voice. If it just says "American English", then it will only say "Left" or "Right". Press this button and select a TTS voice (Text to Speech), like Jill, Jack, Daniel.....etc.

Garmin 760 not in English


Hi, from the "Where To" / "View Map" screen, select the tools (spanner icon), then Settings (spanner icon again) then Language (Mouth icon).
There should be 3 options, the lower left is the Keyboard; select this then scroll to British English. The upper icon is the Voice, choose a suitable one (if it says (TTS) it will read out street names as ir gives directions), the top-right option is Text, again choose British 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.

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)
