Nuvi 660 audio update?

I hade a nuve 200 and the voice was clear and concise. I recently purchased a used 660 and the voice is not nearly as clear, I see that my 200 has a newer version of the audio. Is there a way to update the version for the audio. i have already updated the software.

Re: nuvi 660 audio update?

This series of Nuvi has 2 sets of voices for several of the available languages. The standard set is pre-recorded words linked together to form directions. This voice is usually clearer. However you lose street names and expanded vocabulary. The Text-To-Speech (TTS) voices are reading letters to form words, and uses an algorithm to come up with the approximate pronunciation of the word. This may sound less clear, but provides street names. So, you can select a standard voice (settings-locale-voice language) and lose some functionality, or select one of the many TTS voices and try to find one that doesn't offend the ear.

The garbled voice has nothing to do with the map update. You internal speaker is defective. Please see this link to see more info on this problem.

Have you updated the software since you purchased the unit? If not, go to Garmin's site, download WebUpdater and check to see if there is an update to the unit's software. If so, download this and see if it helps. If not, try downloading the same version of the software again. This might help also.

Voice not working properly on garmin nuvi 660 - very disdorted

i have been told that voice to street is not as clear as the voice just stating turns. If it really bothers you then try voice to turn. I cant remember the setting but it should work well for you.
