Be Notified By Your GPS With An Audible Alert When You Exceed The Speed Limit Allowed

Read the article to enlighten you! I’ll start with good news: if you have these models, you will probably be able to have this option.

Probably, because if your GPS model is not a European model, it is possible that you can not have the option to activate the sound option (surely for a question of legality). I still want to try! How to do ? You have to go to the settings, language and keyboard, make the three small bars and click restore (or you can erase all the settings by going into settings and pressing the 3 small bars. do on a Nuvi 56lm). You will then be able to restore the default settings. The GPS should ask you again where you come from (choose a European country, ie France). Also choose the language later if necessary. You will then have to activate the option to receive audible alerts. If it does not work, there is not much to do.

To enable audible alerts on Nuvi 55, 56, 57, 58, 65, 66, 67, 68, 2455, 2475, 2495, 2497, 2408, 2555, 2595, 2597, 2508, 2539, 2559, 2589, 2599, 2639, 3689, 2797, 2798, 2789, 3450, 3490, 3590, 3597, 3598, Dezl 570, Dezl 760, Dezl 770, and RV 760; what you need to do is go to settings, map & vehicle and scroll to the option “speed alarms”. You can check the option to enable or disable it to disable it.

For Dezl 560, Nuvi 2200, 2250, 2300, 2350, 2360, 2370, 2440, 2450, 2460 and the nüLink! LIVE 2300: Go to tools, settings, navigation, car (or your other vehicle if you have a Dezl 560), scroll until you see the option “speed alarms”.

You can change the alert threshold (the number of kilometers required before being warned by pressing the icon indicating the speed limit.

Some Garmin NUVI devices can see a visual alert when you exceed the limit allowed (no need to change the location settings to choose a European country in this case). If you exceed the limit, it will be displayed in red, or your current speed will be displayed in red depending on the GPS model. This list differs from the models for receiving audible alerts.
