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....

My NUVI 250W LCD SCREEN HAS BROKEN. HOW CAN I CHANGE IT AND FROM WHERE I CAN BUY IT? I AM IN TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA THANKS AND REGARDS


Please don't attempt this yourself. You risk damaging the unit. There have been (3) different LCD displays used in the production run of your unit. You won't know which one it takes until you open the unit up and again you risk damaging the unit. Please see this link:

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


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

Changing the voice


No, but you can change the spoken language. New models Streetpilot C5xx and Nuvi allow you to change the voice either to male or female.

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)
