I have the garmin nuvi 760 brand new. it gets no sound at all. volume is turned up to 80% and language selected is american english jack. when i drive, there are no voice directions, even tho it maps out the route. does anyone know what is wrong? 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.

if you are still getting sound when you press on the screen then the voice might have just been turned off, turn the unit on and hit tools>settings>language and the voice should say american english jack or jill
Hi, go to
Choose a setting with a person's name at the side of it
IE: American English Jill
This will talk to you then
Also on the menu, check Volume and Mute are good.
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.
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.
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.
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.
