    The Voice commands only work sometimes. I will sometimes start a trip with the voice working fine, then the sound will go out without my touching the nuvi. There are times when I turn on my Garmin 200 NUVI and the sound will not come on at all. My Garmin is only a few months old, and I've had this problem for the last two......Can anyone help? I can't find a customer service #. It seems I should be able to exchange my Garmin, or in the least, get some help with it. I bought it from Wal-Mart and I was told that I couldn"t return or exchange it after only 15 days. What a bumber!!

Try listening through the headphone jack. If you hear sound there, then your internal spelaer is bad.

No sound


Turn the volume up. Turn on the Garmin Nuvi. Tap the "Volume" button on the "Where to?" or home screen. Move the slider for the volume up.

Unmute the Garmin Nuvi. Tap the "Volume" icon again. Uncheck the "Mute" option, if it is currently checked.

Make sure the voice is not faulty. The navigation instructions are provided by a voice.To verify whether or not the present voice is faulty, you must switch the voice. Power on the Nuvi and tap the "Tool" icon. Tap "Settings" in the Tool menu. Tap the "Language" option and tap the language you want. Then select another voice to use. Now go back to the home screen and enter an address into the "Where to?" option. See if you can hear sound now.

Update the Garmin Nuvi with WebUpdater. Download and install WebUpdater from the Garmin website (see Resources). Launch WebUpdater on the computer, and connect the Nuvi to the computer with the USB cable. The software will detect the Nuvi and locate all updates for the device. Confirm that you want to update the device when prompted and WebUpdater will download the updates to the Nuvi.

Reset the Garmin Nuvi. A master reset will restore the Nuvi to its factory configurations and delete all favorites and waypoints that have been added. Power off the Nuvi and unplug it from any power source. Hold your finger down on the bottom right corner of the Nuvi screen, at the same time power the device back on. When asked "Do you really want to erase all user data?," remove your finger from the bottom corner of the screen and tap "Yes." The device will reset and sound should be restored.

Wer can i find garmin nuvi voice downloads for free


Sincerely, you will not be able to get a free voice download for your garmin nuvi, except if you have some other voices on the latest updates and downloads. Reason being that, garmin nuvi tries ti make profit after creating the device that works for your navigation. So I will advice you buy one, from garmin nuvi website as it is available there.

Hope this helped you

I have a NUVI 750 and the voice directions are breaking up. I know that the weather effects this, but this is getting worse. What can I do?


Hello, this possibly isn't a weather issue. All the voice combinations are stored locally on the local memory so their is no voice transmitted to GPS as in case of cell phone.

The issue is 'Text-to-speech' technology. Through in-built modules, it trys mimicing reading the english text as human's do and the sound is sometimes not natural. Its recognized as 'stuttering'

To isolate the issue, you can just select other language in the settings that is not TTS. It won't read the street names for you but you should receive a clean voice such as 'Take a left turn in 300 feet'

If you haven't registered your unit with Garmin, I suggest do it now at garmin.com. Then try for getting a latest software fix at the following location

Hope this helps.

Voice direction is gone on my nuvi 760. What is the solution.


You probably lost all your TTS voice files or your speaker is not working. Connect Garmin to PC and run WebUpdater from Garmin and it will put everything back in.
