No voice guidance on Nav

I cannot get any voice guidance. In settings the voice guidance option is not highlighted to turn on. I can go to screen and adjust volume, but again no volume or voice. Otherwise the nav system works great. Don't know if another way to turn on voice, or if I need to contact dealer, thx

Voice guidance works great on my car, abet the default is to loud, but able to change the volume. The voice actually pronounces some of the odd sounding street names very close to actual name.
Voice warns me app 1KM from a turn when on the highway or if I have not made a turn in a while.

The only hiccup is the Voice Guidance will tell me to turn left or right and almost immediately it will repeat the command. Maybe she thinks I was not listening to her, much like my normal passenger LOL.

Other than the fact it seems to work opposite of the way my Garmin worked I am very happy with it. A little practise will help me with that.

One problem is the fact when you get software updates all your favourites, planned trips, and home are deleted.

I tried with my car and I can turn it off and on again.

Navigation screen
Touch settings button
Yes to navigation
Scroll to Guidance
Several options

should be check for voice guidance. to turn it on.

I tried it with engine off.

I am able to enable/disable "Play Voice Guidance Prompts" on my system (and change male/female voice). Would you be able to upload a quick photo of what you're seeing on your Nav System?

I am not in front of my console - but I recall you have to set the region to USA and English...

The option for voice is not highlighted, so cannot do anything with it. I have tried to remove chip and reinstalling it. Have tried with car off and on. I will take a picture of it next time I am in the car.

Easiest thing to do is take it to your dealer and show them the fault. They should be able to do a reset or update on the Nav System.

Took pictures

I have tried everything all of you have suggested, and still no voice. I probably will have to call dealer, hopefully won't have to take in. Dealer is 2 hours away. I did take pictures. Thank you for your suggestions!!
