TechsterJames :

Has voice navigation worked previously and stopped working, never worked, or is this the first time you are using it? Do you have any bluetooth devices synced? Have you added any aftermarket equipment (amplifier, speakers, etc.)?Navigation voice volume is adjusted by selecting Menu -> Feedback Settings -> Pressing + (repeatedly) to increase. If you have already tried this I apologize.*

Customer:

Working correctly now.

Customer:
