1. Press Tools, then press Settings, then press Language. There should be voices displayed. Press the one you want to select it.

2. If there's only one voice on the satnav you can download more from garmin. First connect the satnav to your pc and go to http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp and download webupdater. When it's installed it will search for updates to your software. Follow the prompts and it will give you a selection of voices to pick from. Tick the ones you want and click next. They will be downloaded to your satnav. Then after you disconnect from the pc repeat the instructions in para 1 above to change to the voice of your choice.

Portable GPS


All of the Garmin automotive GPS units that speak street names are also loaded with basic voice prompts. If one of these types of voice prompts has been selected, the voice prompts will not speak street names.

In order to change this setting on the StreetPilot c550/580, please follow these steps:
  1. In the Main Menu, tap on the Settings icon.
  2. Tap on "Locale"
  3. The second line on this screen has a picture of a mouth. To the right, the current voice for the GPS device is listed. Tap it to change the voice.
  4. Select a voice that is labeled with (TTS) at the end. These voices will speak street names.
  5. Select "OK". The voice has now been changed.
Your device should now speak street names.

Voice and car changes


In order to change your car icon apart from the icons that are already on it you must first download additional icons which are available from the Garmin.com Website and then transfer those from your computer to your Nuvi - see Page 21 of the Owner's Manual available by download from Garmin.com To change the voice touch Settings on the right side of your Main Scree which then provides 6 Sub Menus, one of which is Locale choose Locale and then the bar identified by the Set of Lips will allow you to change the language of the voice and from Male to Female (page 46 of the Owner's Manual)
