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.

SOURCE: No Maps on My GARMIN nuvi 200W

I bought the nuvi 200w and when I registered the unit it said that there was an updated map available so I down loaded and installed it. When I turned the unit on, it said no detailed maps available and would not work. I called garmin and they said that to fix it I had to hook the nuvi up to my computer and start>my computer>nuvi>garmin there is a file called gmapprom.img (shows over 1,000,000 mb) delete this file. Open all programs>garmin>mapsource highlight the areas on the map that you want and click on the add to device icon. After doing this, my nuvi is working fine. The explanation was that the original file had files for Canada that were not unlocked. Try this and good luck!

SOURCE: need free updates for my garmin nuvi 200

You didn't say how long you've had your device, but if you haven't registered your device at Garmin.com yet, go do that and they will then offer you a free upgrade.

Other than that, I don't think you'll find anything free. The next best thing is to buy the "nüMaps Lifetime™". I felt this was the best deal they have.

How do I update a Nuvi 40lm?

Go to the Garmin site and download and install Garmin Express. Plug your GPS into your PC. The program should identify the GPS and allow you to select from the available updates.

I have no "voice language

This can sometimes happen if your device is too full with data. Garmin express tries to clear off files that are not needed and goes a little overboard. I recommend buying a 4 or 8gb micro SD card for your maps. Then you can reinstall the voices from the device page (optional updates) of Garmin express or use Garmin's other program called Web Updater. Either will work.

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.

Garmin Street Pilot. No upgrades available from Garmin. Can it be updated some other way?

Hi Steve,

The Street Pilot line was one of the first automotive GPS devices from Garmin, and has got to be 8+ years old. Garmin contracts with Navteq for map software. At one point, Garmin needed to have Navteq compress their new maps so that they wouldn't need to increase the amount of memory in the GPS units and still be able to include all the way points, and new features such as junction view, traffic receivers, text to speech voices, etc. These new maps have an "NT" descriptor in the title. "NT "stands for "New Technology". Non-NT maps are no longer produced.

The new Garmin GPS hardware had to included the ability to decompress maps "on the fly" for display on the screen. As a result, the NT maps will not work in the older Garmin devices.

Your best bet is to either use the Street Pilot - knowing that the routes may no longer provide accurate information, or purchase a New, Refurbished or Used GPS. Garmin offers "Lifetime Maps" as an option for nearly all NT capable GPS units either as a subscription after GPS purchase, or "in the box" when buying a Garmin GPS. You'll get FREE map updates for that GPS up to 4 times per year. This assures you of always having the most recent maps available in your GPS. Look for a model that has "LM" in it (ie: nuvi 1490LM). If it has a "T" in the model name (ie: nuvi 1490T), it has Lifetime Traffic. If it is listed as "LMT" (nuvi 1490LMT) it has both Lifetime Maps and Lifetime Traffic.

I hope helps!

Garmin Nuvi 660 lost Europe maps

Eventually managed to speak to a man at Garmin who confirmed that it was not loading any European maps because it didn't have enough spare memory to load them all. He said that he would email me instructions for freeing up sufficient memory, the email never arrived but I decided to delet all the voice languages that were no use to me and all the other language 'help' files and tried again - it worked.
At no point did I get a 'insufficiant memory' warning, which would have been very helpful, nor is there any guidance for how much memory will be required when embarking on the update. Take note Garmin...

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 350 sound not working

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.
