it was a mistake when i formated storage memory of my device thinking that it is the sd card. anyway i am a little bit lucky because i copied all the files which was on storage memory of my device in a folder on my pc. i put back all folders on garmin storage memory after i formated it but it was nonsense. i can not see the base map(92.708kb) and prom map(1.430.464kb), device telling me that ''no detailed maps found that support routing.the nuvi can not be used without them.'' this will not be such a big problem because i can see all maps installed on sd card but the problem is that i couldn't hear the guidance voice during the travel(Audio version : missing;tools--settings-- language -- voice: no found;). i respectfully ask you to provide me a solution regarding those problems.

You should be able to download and install any available voices from Garmin using their Webupdater software.

thank you, Rick James, but i didn t succed to solve the problem in this manner.
first, in that garmindevice.xml are some data related to voices presenting the versions like major 2, minor 30 and so on. when i used webupdater it showed me no update related to voices.
than i modified that xml file and i replaced all major and minor values
- <UpdateFile>
- <Version>
with 0. i deleted all voices from their folder and i used than webupdater. it downloaded a lot of vpm files in voice folder on my gamin but i still can not swich between those voices from my garmin telling me VOICE: NONE FOUND or AUDIO VERSION MISSING.
Ill be glad if you could give me a solution..
best regards!

unguralex, I was able to restore voices on a 255W that someone brought me by doing a hard reset (press and hold bottom right corner of screen during startup). Before the reset, no voices were displayed in the Language settings. Hard reset deleted the favourites, so make sure you restore them from a disk backup.

many many thanks, WAASup! i tried this kind of hard reset long time didn't work for me.i don't know what to say. it could be a problem of files incompatibilities. if i press and hold the battery sign nuvi shows me a lot of things about it. so 1st page top right:voice count 0; voice checksum 000000000
3th page on the top of the page audio test page audio missing
in midle current phrase incompatible audio
top and right aud ve none found
could that garmindevice.xml be the problem related to those incompatibilities?

My Nuvi 205 would go into "audio version:Missing" sometimes and it does the bizzarest thing when I use the reset button. It sometimes restores to 80% volume with the mute applied.

I just did Tools > settings > restore > restore all settings. Audio version shows as "missing".

If I connect the USB cable, download the XML and look at it, it looks like:
- <UpdateFile>
- <Version>

Then, after removing the cable and looking in the device, it registers as "version 2.00"

When I bought the unit, it came loaded with 2.20, then running the web updater rolled it back to 2.00.
Does anyone have the English_American.vpm in ver 2.20 that came with the 205??
