    voice started getting muffled on a long trip. turned it off, then when turned on, you would have to keep your ear close to the speaker to be able to barely hear a whispered voice navigation despite the volume being set to 70 to 100%. tried external speaker, didn't work either. touch tone can be heard clearly though. and when set to bluetooth, garbled/muffled phone ringing and sound may be heard. but with navigation sounds still negative. afraid to update or send to garmin because afraid that problem will come back like the rest i've read from here, and the money i might need for the repairs all in all (out of warranty by the way), might just be better off being used to buy another cheaper yet more reliable navigation system. please advise. thank you.

Garmin 760 stopped talking was fine yesterday


Make sure the volume isn't muted. There is a separate volume adjustment for Navigation (voice) in addition to media player. Can be a bad speaker. Make sure a TTS voice is selected. More info at these links:

My OnStar navigation no longer gives voice prompts for turns and such. Was working fine, radio mutes down but then no voice prompts play. Just started in middle of a drive. How do I get the audio voice...


I was told by on star that if you leave the drivers door open for 90 seconds and then lock all of the doors and wait until the next day the system will reset itself. I know this sounds like smoke and mirrors but it does work. Please let me know. Hope this helps.

The voice on Garmin stopped working


Hi

Please do this and let me know results.

If your device is not providing navigational prompts the language settings on the device will need to be checked:
  1. Turn the device on
  2. Touch Tools
  3. Touch Settings
  4. Touch Language
  5. Touch the blue box under Voice

If this section has your desired voice please make sure this voice is selected which will resolve the issue.

If the above fails or the unit doesn’t list the voice/s that you require you will need to update the software and reload the voice/s back to the device via WebUpdater. To install WebUpdater please click the link below:

http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp

Once installed and the software is updated please make sure that you check for additional updates which should provide you with a number of voices to reinstall to your device.

Once reinstalled your problem should be resolved.

Let me know

Stop transfering voice from Sony Ericson P910i and Garmin Nuvi 660


Can you update the firmware on your unit
my k800i sony phone had a problem synchronising and would freeze, then one day the nuvi 660 updated the firmware by itself and has been fine since, only problem being the volume, a bit low when trying to contest with large diesel engine, onboard speaker keen to distort over 80% volume

Question
: My nuvi is supposed to speak street names when giving voice prompts but it doesn't. How can I fix this?
Answer: All of the Garmin automotive GPS units that speak street names are also loaded with basic voice prompts (i.e. 'Turn Right in 500 feet') as well as 'text-to-speech' voices that speak street names. If one of the basic types of voice prompts has been selected, the voice prompts will not speak street names.
In order to change this setting on the nüvi line of products, please follow these steps:
  1. In the Main Menu, tap on the Settings icon.
  2. Tap on "Locale"
  3. The second line on this screen has a picture of a mouth. To the right, the current voice for the GPS device is listed. Tap it to change the voice.
  4. Select a voice that is labeled with (TTS) at the end. These voices will speak street names.
  5. Select "OK". The voice has now been changed.
The device should now speak street names.
