I kept getting the "there is no book data" message as well, and it was incredibly frustrating as there is not manual, no information online, and when I called Toys R Us, they just told me to return it.

What ended up working for me was to turn the pen on and point it to the area on the globe that says "Interactive Talking Globe", just above the menu area where you select the different functions (ie "country and ocean", "national anthem" and "major cities").

That changed the voice back to the original male version, and all of the functionality returned.

I hope that this helps.

Have an LG Bluetooth headphone set that voice activation of calls has stopped working. Must use the iPhone to look up numbers and dial. Not safe. Please help

If you do not have Data, SIRI will not work, so change your phone to 'Voice Control.

  1. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Home Button.
  2. Under Press and Hold to Speak, select one of these options: Siri: Siri will respond when you press and hold the Home button. Voice Control: Classic Voice Control will respond when you press and hold the Home button. This will also turn off Siri.

Why doesn"t the girl in voice command talk to me

Did you forget to take out the trash? You should be able to switch the voices and voice response in the setup menu. I believe there are three voices to choose from. Also check to make sure you did not turn off the voice option in the settings as well. .

My pen drive is only reading data in one computer, its showing data error in when connected to other computer, how can i solve this problem?

This is most likely due to a damaged or dirty female connector on the "data error"'ing computer. Try blowing some compressed air in the slot, or looking inside to see if there is some lint inside; it happened to me with a SD card once.
Try loading the pen drive onto a third computer to exclude the (very unlikely) possibility that the flash drive is borderline faulty (e.g., requires a slightly higher voltage than normal to be read).

Point pen fails after falls

I'm guessing something inside the pen was jarred. A basic solution would be to get a replacement.

Also try taking the tip out of the pen and leaving it OUT of the pen for 24hrs.

Not speeking street names

go to the:

1-change preferences
2-change voice

than you need to select female voice but it might be female computer voice! Because only female computer voice can speak street names.

3-Have a good day!!!!

260 not calling out street names

- Amazingly, the 260 does not come with Text-To-Speech turned on. The whole point of the upgrade to the 260 is text-to-speech (TTS). So go into the settings and go to "Voice", and choose an English voice with "TTS" in the title. The default voice does tell you to "turn right in point three miles", and all GPS receivers with voice prompting will do this, but that's not Text-To-Speech. TTS actually pronounces (or does the best it can) at pronouncing street names. So instead of "turn right", you get "Turn right on Jackson street".
