Jack, too

Ditto for version and changelog for Jack.

PS: If using Garmin Express to look for voice updates, it will only update your selected active voice. So if you use Samantha, you won't get Jack (and vice versa)—and if you use Karen for instance, you're not offered the new Jack or Sam, at least for the nuvi 3597 and its TTS3 voices.

The old WebUpdater program will offer both of these new TTS3 voice updates regardless of the selected active voice.

Garmin Nuvi 2699 with 2017.30 Maps

Went Smoothly

Samantha is the only voice I have in my 3597 and it went smoothly.

No updates on the 660 though.

how to get Jack TTS voice on 3597

Ok.. I guess I don't quite understand..

My 3597 has:

American English - Michelle
American English - Samantha (real directions)
Expanol Americas - Ana
Francais Canadien
Portugues Brasileiro - Beatriz
Portugues Brasileiro - Pedro

And 6 languages that appear to be oriental in nature.

No Jack.

I've tried to use the webupdater to get the jack voice but there's no selection for it.

Does a thread exist that will walk me through how to do the following:

1). delete the languages I really don't need or want
2). how to get the Jcak (real voice) file to install?

As always; thanks in advance

You could try Garmin Express and install all English language voices, hopefully including Jack:

...with the device attached to the computer, go to the Tools & Content section of Garmin Express, then click the Optional Updates, then Language Files, then English, then Install...

It's odd to me that your 3597 didn't come with Jack and Samantha and also that WebUpdater didn't offer Jack. I look forward to your next post with results.

I suggest you first do the previous post and delete unneeded voices since your 3597 may not have room to install all English voices with Garmin Express. Do you know how much free storage is available on your 3597?

looking for voice Samantha update 2.5 or higher

is there an update to Samantha tts3 for downloading version 2.5 or higher

thanks for your help.

Samantha and Jack 2.50 are the latest

There is no Samantha or Jack version above 2.50. Jack and Samantha, the two American English TTS3 voices, were last updated in December 2016 and are both version 2.50. If you don't have 2.50, I think this method will work to update each voice:

-Make sure that Samantha is your Selected Voice
-Run Garmin Express with the GPS attached
-you should be alerted to a voice update for Samantha to 2.50
-download and install
-disconnect the GPS

-and if you need to update Jack to 2.50, change your GPS device to use Jack's voice and repeat the above steps.

For updates (and especially appropriate this month as five English language TTS3 voices have been updated!), see:

There is a recent discussion at the end of this thread regarding the newly updated English language voices:

Samantha and Jack now are at version 2.60 as found by alandb so all of us with TTS3 voices have at least two, if not seven, voice updates to perform for Garmin voice updates offered in May 2018!

Thanks for the info

Samantha voice

Thanks Craig. Just showed up as an update for my 3597 when I started Garmin Express.

Great

Great, now switch your device's selected voice to Jack and run Garmin Express again for his update.

Ditto for the others if you've added them...
