I need to restore the voice on my Garmin Nuvi

Welcome to JustAnswer !! I am Andy and I will be glad to help you out with your issue today.

What is the model number of your nuvi ?

Are you not able to hear any sound at all from the unit .... or only the Navigational prompt are missing ?

When did you buy this unit

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
nuvi 750

no sound

purchased december 2009

Also need to update maps

Please do this and let me know result. Then we will try the next thing.

If your nuvi does not have sound, check the audio output setting. You could have inadvertently turned on the FM transmitter or the mute button setting.


To check the audio output settings:

  1. Touch the Volume Quick Settings menu (next to the Wrench icon)
  2. At the bottom of the screen, touch FM Trans
  3. If a check displays in the Enable FM Transmitter option, clear it
  4. Select Back
  5. If a check displays in the Mute option, clear it
  6. Ensure that the volume is at a reasonable percent level
  7. Touch Back until you return to the Main menu

If you are still not getting any sound you may want to check the volume levels on the device:

  1. Touch the Tools/Wrench icon
  2. Touch Settings
  3. Touch the down arrow
  4. Touch Volume
  5. If a check displays in either Mute option, clear it
  6. Ensure that each volume option is at a reasonable level
  7. Touch Back until you return to the main menu

At this time you should be receiving sound on your device.
