Nextar x3 08 GPS -Can I change the female voice to a male voice?

Bought a new Nextar GPS today - the female voice a rather shrill and not as loud as I need even with the volume on high. I would like to change it to a male voice - is this possible? I looked through the manual under settings and have been unable to find anything. Thank you.

You cannot modify the voice like you can for TomTom. You are pretty much stuck with the female voice if you want voice prompts.

How do I increase the volume on my tomtom?


Tom Tom volume was once loud at max volume. Now, even saying increase volume, the volume remains very low. Even though the voice says maximum volume, the volume is unreadable at road noise.

Bluetooth volume too low Go730


You are out of luck...I have the same unit and it wont even connect with my LG Voyager! the volume doesn't want to cooperate with anything I think it should do. I actually went with a wired headset to answer call once it did connect and forgot about the whole speaker thing.

My gps does not read streets names


To get your TomTom to speak street names, you will need to change the voice from a recorded voice to a computer voice. This can be done by: 
  • Connect your TomTom to your computer
  • When the TomTom asks do you want to connect to the computer, choose Yes
  • Open the TomTom Home application
  • Click on the 'Add Traffic, Voices, Safety Cameras, etc.' button
  • Click on the 'Voices' button
  • Click on the 'Computer Voices' button
You can now select a voice to install on the device. 
Once you have installed a voice, change it by
  • Disconnect the TomTom from your computer
  • Turn on the TomTom
  • Touch the screen to bring up the menu
  • Touch 'Change Preferences'
  • Touch 'Voice Preferences'
  • Touch 'Change Voice'
  • Use the Left / Right arrows to navigate to the voice you just installed (Look for the word 'computer' in the upper right corner by the male/female option)
  • Touch the 'Select' button

Tomtom xl 330.s wont speek street names


Yes Nickarino is right.
When I switched on my new tom tom it gave me that option to speak street names and it vanished after selected a different voice. I checked all manuals and web references in Tom Tom - none of them list it.
Like Nick said - what you need to do is swtich the voice type to SAMANTHA and it will show the option "Read Street Names Loudly". I jumped on it and said yes ..!!!
Thanks Nick !!

New voice wanted for nextar gps


Nextar doesn't allow you to change voices. With the inexpensive price, there are some limitations and this is one of them.

Voice change nuvi 250w


There are some voices you can change, use the webupdater from garmin to see what they have on stock, and while you're there update the firmware too. Don't install stuff you don't need language wise....
