    I am having the same problem with my magellan roadmate 700. I had ver. 3.10 and upgraded to ver. 3.22 so that I could install the new software and maps ver. 6. The unit was working perfect before the update, but after I lost all sound. I tried removing the power and reseting the sysem with no success. I was looking for information and came across this post. I found the hidden menu (- and Repeat) But what am I supposed to do once i am there.



    Thank in advance.

1. Search for the file ENG_F.SND sound on google or yahoo or any search engine.

2. Connect RM 700 to PC, and create folder name SOUND_EU on RM 700.

3. Copy the ENG_F.SND to SOUND_EU folder.

4. Disconnect RM 700 from PC.

5. Turn on RM 700, and go to Option, configuration, language, and choose English.

6. RM 700 will load sound file and turn off.

7. Turn on RM 700, if it keeps showing the initial screen, then connect the RM 700 to PC, and DELETE the ENG_F.SND from SOUND_EU. It should be OK after you disconnect RM 700 from PC and turn it on again.

GOOD LUCK!
NOTES: My screen indeed locked at first as covered in the last step, so expect that to happen. Don't worry if you never get to do step 5 and 6. Connecting the USB, deleting the SND file and restarting it works and the sound is back even without the file there.

This only fixes the Female voice along with the beeps and clicks. The unit goes silent again if you select the male voice but switching back to the female fixed that. I assume "_F" in the file name must mean female.

The display still shows "AFIJDEN...." or something like that instead of the word Exit or Entrance when exiting or entering the freeway. Voice is fine though. Anyone got a fix for that?

  • Turn on the unit and select any user.
  • Push 'Option' button.
  • Then select 'Configuration' on the screen.
  • Scroll down to select 'Diagnostics'.
  • Scroll down again and select 'AUDIO Test '.

If you can hear any sound in the 'AUDIO TEST', it implies that there is
No issue with the SPEAKERS. You can turn the volume control to MAX
and try to obtain sound. Sometimes you would also have to depress the volume dial and then rotate it to increase the volume.

However, if you cannot hear any sound in the AUDIO test, it would imply that there is a problem with SPEAKERS.

Assuming that it is just the voice not working and not all sound in general, try going into the configuration menu and do the voice tests, run the audio test ("a - b -c" etc. ) Do you still have the clicking sounds. If you have the software version (4.32/5.14 or 5.32) that came with your unit, then re-install it. If your not getting any sound then let me know and I'll tell you how we can fix that.

Does the initial Magellan screen appear? If it doesn't display anything and it's just blue... :( Normally means that something on the main board is your problem. Which, means your out of luck. What happened to it? It just suddenly stopped working? Let me know. R/

Steve, In this case I would replace the Hard drive. But, since you probably don't have spare HDD's lying around.. do you atleast have the Software version? Some CD that came with it hopefully. If you do, then you may be able to stay alive here. Once your system boots to the user screen.. press + and repeat key at the same time.. "secret" menu now. ONLY IF YOU HAVE SOFTWARE TO INSTALL!! Select NAND FLASH FORMAT.. The unit will shut down after formatting. start up your software installer on computer. plug usb in.. and power on unit. This fix isn't %100, but it's the best shot you have. Otherwise you've gotta send it down here to Texas (where magellan repair is) and pay for the new hard drive. OR.. you could call customer service and see what they have to say. you'll probably be transferred to overseas.. --good luck with that -Dan

Why is there no voice commands


Not all GPS units have voice capabilities. That is a function that is normally only included in the more expensive units. Most GPS unit have the capabilities to voice directions and street names, but will not work with your voice.

The voice does not work... it is not muted and the device makes beeps but does not speak.


Make sure a voice is selected. If this doesn't help, reload the voices into the GPS by connecting it to the internet using the Garmin software.

No voice during navigation


Have you tried to reset everything to Factory state? Both GPS and System? If it doesn't help then restore Sanyo map software from supplied DVD. Something must be missing or corrupted.

Voice not working properly on garmin nuvi 660 - very disdorted


i have been told that voice to street is not as clear as the voice just stating turns. If it really bothers you then try voice to turn. I cant remember the setting but it should work well for you.
