The first thought would be to reset the unit by holding the power button for about 20 seconds.

If that doesn't work, try to restore to factory defaults. You'll lose all custom settings but it is worth a shot.

Before trying any of the above, go through the process manually of navigating to a destination. Make sure you have a computer voice selected prior to doing so.........

I tend to agree in most cases. The novelty wears off after a bit. But some newer LIVE models (in Europe, anyway) have about 100 voice commands, if I remember correctly.

And with more and more jurisdictions going to 'hands free' legislation, the VR is a viable option in some cases.

the usa 740 also has the expanded voice command list. however you need to tap the screen to activate it which defeats its purpose. its only really useful with the remote accessory in my opinion so you dont have to tap the screen.

Voice command list

Could you please give more detail how to get the vcice command list?

I've never found voice commands a toy when using a cellphone or computer. Rather, they're a speedy enhancement and much-worthile safety aid. For those with impaired or no vision, they are surely a must. And with most GPS with relatively small screens, they're a great help for the rest of us as well.

TIA.
