That has happened to me several times. When it happens I go to Tools > Settings > Language. In my case, the Voice field is empty, so I click on the Voice field and then select American English-Jill (TTS) and it's okay afterwards.

Go to tools>settings>volume. At the bottom of the screen is a button for "FM Transmitter" Select the tFM ransmitter so the screen opens and check the box to disable the FM transmitter. You should now get the voice of whoever you have selected in the languages function..

When the FM transmitter is enabled, then the unit is sending an FM radio signal to your car's radio on the frequency identified in the FM transmitter box. The purpose of this function is to play the audio from your garmin unit over the speakers in your car radio. If you wish to use this feature, you might have to have the unit search for a different FM frequency that is not in use in your area.

I got mine to talk again by running the battery down to almost empty. It's working fine now.

No french laguage


On the Nuvi 7xx series as well as many other nuvi models, voice updates are free and downloadable from garmin.com. Garmin only charges for map upgrades. Maps do not contain voices. I have backups of french text to speech (TTS) voices. I would be happy to give you links to download them to you.

I have a Nuvi 650 which seems to be muted. How do I get it to talk again?


1.
  • Press the volume, the speaker icon at the bottom right of the screen showing WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  • On the volume screen there's a tick box for MUTE. If it's ticked press it and the tick will be removed. The satnav should then not be muted.
2. If this doesn't solve the problem it may be that the voice file is corrupted.
  • Press TOOLS
  • Press SETTINGS
  • Press LANGUAGE
This brings you to a screen with VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
Press VOICE and select another English speaking voice. This may solve the problem.

3. If you don't have another English speaking voice;

  • Download the latest version of Webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 and install it to your computer
  • Connect your satnav to your computer and run the Webupdater program
  • Webupdater will find any software updates for your satnav. Install them. When the installation is complete it will find optional updates including voices. Select some English speaking voices and download them to your satnav.
  • After you have disconnected your satnav from the computer you'll need to select a voice again as described in paragraph 2 above.

The Garmin 750 has a software bug that happens if "loading Maps" takes a long time. The voice gets changes to "Afrikanes" or "none"and won't work. To fix go to tools , settings, language check voice settings for prpoer selection.turn unit off and after 20 seconds turn back on this should reset the voice settings. Check your software version the latest from Garmin is 4.80

I had the same problem after I had my Nuvi 750 for a few months.  The voice just stopped.  I called Garmin and they replaced it under warranty.

NO SOUND ON GARMIN 750


I had the same problem. I fixed it by going to settings, then to language, and then entering American English into the Voice category. Hope this helps.

My garmin nuvi 205 quit talking. volume is at 100% and not on mute. beep sounds work but when in route i have no next turn or direction sounds. screen map does work.


I have a 750. I went to settings, language and restored the defaults. The Voice was blank when I went to that screen. I am not sure if the 205 has the language setup or not, but this should solve other Garmin problems. And as a bonus, if you want to solve the problems with the US, Fire Congress check out http://FireCongress.org
