Navman EZY 100T lost its voice while operating. Can this be fixed please?

This looks like an older unit and IIRC it is Australian, was discontinued and bought up by another company. Try a full Hardware Reset. Tiny hole, back, right side https://manualmachine.com/navman/ezy100t/1216368-user-manual/#19 https://www.google.com/search?q=Navman+ezy+100t+lost+its+voice ..

First you have to set up an account at Garmin using the serial number on your GPS. Once you do that you can download firmware update for free.
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.

By the way, the correct Garmin approved power OR download cables are a must!!

My car charger will not charge battery in garmin

The fuse may be gone in the charger. There's a ring, near the silver tip, of the plug that goes into the cigarette lighter. If you unscrew the ring the plug will come apart. Take care not to lose the silver tip as it may fall out. Replace the fuse and it may solve the problem.

Verify if compass course in standby is indicating correct course .
Do the calibration procedure as stated in in the handbook (360 degree turn)
If it still not indicate the correct course ,or is frozen, compass or printed circuit is faulty.

I have a Garmin 885 the sceen does not work.

I recommend attempting a hard reset of your Garmin Nuvi 885.
Then I would upgrade the system software to the latest version. This often brings back unresponsive Nuvis.

Perform the Hard Reset
  1. Power the unit off.
  2. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  3. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?"prompt appears.
  4. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot.
Upgrade the System Software

The upgrade software is a download available from Garmin. Installation steps are detailed here.

I hope that helps.

My GARMIN Nuvi does not work?

A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

GPS turns off unexpectedly

If your GPS is suddenly shut off check your device may be set to battery-saving mode. If you faced a battery issue, then replace the battery. Check out the replacement guide for more information on how to replace the battery. After that, try plugging in the GPS to see if it will stay on. If that does not work, check if the cable is working. You can test this by trying out a different cable. Learn More: https://bit.ly/3V9aePi
