Please tell us what model it is. Is the sound set to be muted with a check mark in the box? Make sure that a voice is selected in the voice set-up menu.

My garmin nuvi 205 stopped talking even though the volume is on 100%. What happened and how do I fix it?

First press the speaker symbol and check that the volume is not down fully or that the mute box is not ticked. If it is press the mute box to untick it or increase the volume. Otherwise follow the instructions below.

1. Press Tools, then press Settings (or Locale on some models), then press Language. You will see a bar for Voice. Press Voice and select a different voice. If this doesn't solve the problem it's most likely because the voice file has become corrupted. To replace the corrupted file.
2. Download webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 and connect your satnav to your computer. Install webupdater and your satnav will look for updates. After it's finished it will give you an option to download voices. Click the ones you want and press next. The voices selected will be downloaded to your satnav.
When you have removed the satnav from the computer you'll need to select a voice again as described in para 1 above.

Hi! I get no voice from my new Garmin 265W. It said a few things and now no voice. The maps are perfect. help!

1. Check the volume by touching the speaker symbol on the main screen and ensure that it's not muted. If it is Mute will be ticked. Touch it to untick it.

2. If mute is not ticked and the volume is turned up touch tools on the main screen and then settings, then language and select a voice and then OK. If the voice file is not corrupted it should work then.

3. If the file is corrupted you'll have to go the garmin website and if you haven't already registered the satnav you'll have to do so. Download webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp Follow the instructions on the website. Then click Next, Tick the voices you want on your satnav. Click Next and then Finish. Now you have the voices downloaded you can repeat the instructions in para 2 above to select the voice you want.
