Making the voice in the machine louder
« on: October 21, 2018, 08:37:37 AM »
Hi Folks,

Sorry this feels like a dumb question, but a search of previous posts and RTFM didnít really answer my question.

I sent Bertha in for a major service. On the way home it scared cr@p out of me when it just spoke up and warned me of a red light camera ahead.  :156: It had never done that before.

I think I now understand how to turn the feature on and off, but it isnít loud enough.  :006:

Now I know this is dangerous, but is there a way to make her voice louder? (Yes the bike, not the Mrs)  :110:   :007:

Thanks in advance.  :028:

I'm guessing that this feature is more to do with the sat nav rather than the bike? Maybe stating which make/model you have on the bike would help?

My bike doesn't speak to me. Lol

Sorry, Garmin 660 on the Triumph mount. It doesnít talk directly from the unit though, it talks through the sound system on the bike.

Volume on the GPS itself is maxed out.

Hi teef.au,

The Zumo 660 has controls built in to adjust :
  • Master Volume
  • Voice Prompts
  • Media Player
  • Phone
( See Image below ).

If the Master and Voice Prompts Volumes are already set to Maximum on the Zumo 660,
and your Zumo 660 is connected to the Trophy Audio system via the 3.5mm Stereo Line Input,
then when SPEAKERS are set as the Audio Output, Volume is adjustable by use of the handlebar
Audio Switch Cube volume buttons.

If HEADSETS is selected  as the Audio Output method, then the Volume adjustment
is made using controls on the Helmet Bluetooth system - refer to your Helmet Bluetooth instructions.

Hope that helps  :028:

Cheers  :821:

Smiles are infectious,and they are FREE,
so if you see someone without one, give them one of yours :-)

If you're using a headset you can set the AVC to high to see if that helps when at speed on the road.  it may be turned off in the menu.  And if you have a Sena unit they also have an AVC setting on most that I'm familiar with.  The Cardo will allow the Trophy volume up/down on the handlebars to adjust it, but none of the other headsets I'm aware of do that.

Hey folks,

Sorry for the delay. Sometimes work is a pain.

Finally got around to checking the sub menu and all volumes are at maximum on the Garmin.

Iím using the speakers and not any headset. I deliberately have my helmet hooked only to my phone because I have other motorcycles and need consistency.

I guess Iím chalking this one up to faulty old age hearing....

Thanks for the comments gents.
