Yes my brother had exactly this problem.

He soon solved it though, he sold it and went back to his TomTom

I have a snooper, though not your model, and no problem with the volume. Are you sure it isn't faulty?

I have a S8000 truckmate, and have no problems in not hearing it.
I would suggest you contact Snooper direct here in the UK and speak to them about the problem.
They will help.

Did you buy it direct or through a third party?

Yep! going to do that tomorrow...can I ask you then, I presume your using your's within a commercial vehicle whereby the cab noise can swallow up a percentage of the unit's volume output, also can you turn up the volume on yours till it distort's?

i have got the s7000 did think that it could be louder at max volumn Had to turn radio volumn down to be sure I do not miss any voice instructions Once I got used to the unit. I had radio volumn back up and navigate via the screen and did not rely on the voice
