Garmin voices (extra voices from tech support)

 

I was unhappy with the limited voices supplied with my Garmin GPS. After a call to tech support I was happily suprised with their offer to send me 4 addition voices which I have used.

Aren't those standard

Aren't those standard voices? British, Australian and American English (2 of each) are standard voices on my 760.

Standard on mine

I have them on my 650 and 1350.

Have you run WebUpdater yet? It'll offer available firmware updates as well as additional voices, vehicles, etc.,etc.

If you nuvi is new, have you registered the unit with Garmin yet and checked to see if there's a free map update due you? Note that map updates are limited-time offers...you snooze, you lose.

Map updates

A one time only map update is free after you purchase a nuvi, BUT it has to be done within 90 days of acquiring the satellites.

I'm not really lost.... just temporarily misplaced!

LOL

You need to stop listening to some of those voices

voices..

You must be one of those that thought the GPS told you to turn and you got lost. I find great humor in the mispronunciation of street names. Sometimes, even when I know where I am I get confused at the street name

Voices

For some reason they were not included in my model. I did a software update but it did not provide any more voices.

Map updates

I found out that you must register within 30 days to get your free lifetime map updates. Also if you resister by phone it will void the lifetime map updates! It must be on-line
