Why di I geta syntax error wen trying to load voices?


Not sure... try spell check first. Then try updating Garmin Express to the newest version. If that doesn't fix it, you can get the extra voices from the Garmin Garage online instead of Garmin Express:

Tip

Garmin POI, GPI, GPX, GDB and CSV and how not to be confused


GPX or CSV file can be converted to the proprietary Garmin format GPI format (Garmin Points of Interest) format using the Garmin POI loader v2.54 OR use the one bundled with the Garmin Map Source v6.15.11 at the time of posting if there is also a BMP file of the same filename then this will be added to the Waypoints Symbol.
If you put all your POI that you want to be added to the Garmin POI then place all them in the same folder prior to starting the POI Loader and they will be placed into sub-menus otherwise it will select the single file entries only.

However the Garmin Mapsource can't open this GPI format it is specifically for the SATNAV Device only open GDB, MPS, GPX and LOC files can be opened as standard. There are two ways that I know of that will convert this GPI back into CSV or the POI format if required you might like to open the POI content in the Map Source program.

First this can be done using GPI2GPS it does however cost 15 EUROs or its older brother GPSConvertor for an extra 20 EUROs will convert to all formats for all makes of device including Tom-Tom, Garmin and many others.

Secondly you can convert POI file in CSV format directly to GPX (exchange format) using the excellent GPXtoPOI Convertor v1.1.8 then import directly into the Map Source if you also want to use BMP that has been downloaded in Map Source you can replace the 8 default custom waypoint symbols located on your computer with your own or from the Tescos.ZIP file in this example that contains the CSV and BMP.

You can open these symbols with a graphic editor and use them as templates for creating your own symbols.You can add up to 64 custom waypoint symbols. These symbols must be in .bmp format and must be named numerically from "000.bmp" to "063.bmp." Custom waypoint symbols can be 16 x 16 pixels (small) or 24 x 24 pixels (large) and up to 32-bit color

Also check out my other POI tip HERE for help on how to create your own BMP's for use with your Garmin using Adobe Photoshop

It will also convert any GPX format into CSV format for use with the POI loader using the other button on the menu maybe this program would be best called GPXtoCSV instead to avoid confusion

.
And this one I saved for last If you want to transfer images from the Garmin use xImage and have your Garmi SATNAV connected.

For a full list of all POI sources then visit the Gamin POI Source another great website full of loads of useful tools is www.freegeographytools.com

If you are unable to use xImage it means that you unit is not compatible for example the Nuvi 250 will not be found and you may see this window

Garmin Nuvi 1390 voice prompt does not work


If your garmin nuvi's voice prompt does not work anymore, then you have to connect it to a system, back up all your files, then you reset or format it, once you have done that, then you restore your maps back on it, then you connect it back to where you took it out from, then you reset the voice prompt. After doing this Your voice prompt should be in good order.

I have a garmin 3970t and the voice command does not work


The Garmin's not very good at recognising the default set phrase to initial voice command; i.e. "Voice Command". If you bring up the Tools menu, and touch Voice Command, it will tell you what phrase it's expecting to hear and provide a button to touch to customise it. The default, as I said, is "voice command", but for some reason, it thinks it's pronounced something like "Vwuss commont". Try it. It might work!

I changed my voice command phrase to "Voys Commarnd" (I'm English - it's how my accent would be written phonetically). It now works most of the time without a problem.

Garmin 765T No sound for bluetooth phone


If you press the phone icon on the gps immediately after dialing or when a call comes in, and bring up the phone options screen, you can then transfer voice to the phone, then immediately re-transfer the voice back to the device.
The voice will come alive. It's hokey and cumbersome, but it works.

Can I change the voice on my gps?


You can change the voice and you can choose British English, Dansk, Deutsch, Espanol, Francais, Franais Canadien, Italiano, Nederlands, Nederlands/ Belgie, Norsk, Portugues, Suomi or Svenska. You turn on the Garmin and on the bottom press onto the tool ( looks like a wrench or something ) and it will bring you to a screen with several choices just click on language and it will then let you choose. We change them around for fun sometimes. Good Luck
