No Sound from GARMIN
This is driving me crazy now. When I launch Garmin, and use it to navigate, I get no sound/voice at all from the APP. I tried the loud setting, spoke to Garmin who had me reload their software, and even just update my OS ot the leaked one. Still no sound. Volume is all the way at 100% in the app already. Any ideas?

I don't have the Garmin Mobile but I have a Garmin Nuvi 660. The 660 has several voices to choose from, some of which do not 'speak'. Since you spoke to Garmin, I'm assuming they would tell you to use a TTS voice if the Mobile has a choice of more than one voice but I thought I'd mention this in case they didn't.
Did a battery pull, upgraded my OS, reinstalled Garmin, and still no sound at all. Also, there is no option to select a voice. I am at a loss here. Garmin said they will refund me, and deavctivate me, but I really like the software. Definitely is a major problem though! Only other APP I have in "Downloads" is Weatherbug.

Man this happened to me. The sound started coming out of the phone speaker instead of the main speaker. So the sound is really quiet. No idea why it happened or how to fix it.
Edit: Just checked it a few days later and it was back to normal. Guess a reboot or something along the way fixed it.
I never heard any sound from Garmin on mine. Not from the phone speaker, or even when I tried the headphones. Nothing at all. I wonder if Weatherbug can be hogging up the sound for alerts or something since it always seems to be running?

I had this problem after downloading the free trial.
It turned out to be an issue with the application permissions. Go to options->advanced options->applications and select the garmin mobile app. Hit menu and edit application permissions.
Open up interactions. The setting for Media needs to be Allow.
I hope that helps.

You will have to wait for an OS update. Lets hope they will fix this soon. NO wonder RIM is releasing so many updates.

I have a new Bold and tried the trial of the Garmin Software. All the audio came out of the speaker that would be close to your ear when using the phone.
I called Garmin Tech support and they claimed they never heard of this my phone must be defective. I searched Google and found this thread.
I did the Go to options->advanced options->applications and select the garmin mobile app. Hit menu and edit application permissions.Open up interactions. The setting for Media needs to be Allow. And it fixed the issue.
I called Garmin back to give them feedback. Garmin told me they had no way of giving the software group feedback. Its sad when companies get to big.
