Garmin GPS Voice Change

Anyone ever successfully change the GPS guidance voice on the Garmin GPS? (I know they have celebrity voices you can download to their portable models)

I have not, but there is a male and female US English voice loaded I think and there could be others - but I am sure of those two. It is under your settings in the GPS main screen. You can also choose a different icon - same as the handheld ones. Mine is a little red SUV. There should be a way to load custom voices, POI, and icons but I don't know for sure.

Also, the street names will be read in whatever voice you have loaded or not at all depending on if the voice is a text to speech voice (TTS) or not.

Re: Garmin GPS Voice Change

I wouldn't want to change the voice in my GPS (RHR)
"She" has a deep sexy voice, and I find myself asking for directions even when I don't need them (ie - sitting in my darkened garage )

POIs, yes; they show up under the "Extra" icon.

Yes, there is a whole thread on loading custom POIs to the Garmin nav system. Just search on Custom POI and you will find it. The process works very well. I have all the road stops in the continental US loaded into mine and have set to give me an alert 2 miles ahead of the stop.
