    Make sure you set your GO in a place where your voice can surely be heard by the microphone. Always get the latest updates as they may include improvements to the recognition. Keep the microphone dust free.

    Hope this helps.

    Also can't get microphone to respond to voice.
    Positioning - have tried holding 2 foot away in a silent room, but still won't respond well.
    Microphone gauge barely registers - even if shout.
    Suggestions? (beyond bin & buy Garmin)

    Hi @AndyPR

    Have you got a Computer voice selected?
