The above site has voices, but it appears you need a separate program. At this point I haven't found anywhere that has voices available for Sony. From looking around, voices for Garmin are not TTS like Sony's. I'm still searching for voices.

The voice on my garwin nuvi 1300 gps stopped working and it is not mutted


Either the voice file is corrupted or not selected.
1. To select a new voice:
  • Press TOOLS (Bottom right corner of the screen with WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS
  • Press LANGUAGE
On this screen there are 3 items including VOICE. Press VOICE and select ENGLISH if it's not already selected. If that doesn't solve the problem the English voice file is probably corrupted and needs to be downloaded again.
2. To replace the corrupted voice file:
  • Download and install, to your computer, the latest version of WEBUPDATER from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
  • Connect your satnav to your computer and run the webupdater program.
  • It will find any updates to the satnav operating system. Select all and install them.
  • When the updates are installed webupdater will find optional updates including voice files. Select some of the English voice files and download them.
When they are downloaded safely disconnect your satnav and re-start it. You will then need to select one of the voices you downloaded as described in paragraph 1 above. This should solve your problem.

I got the garmin 1490T because it was supposed to have voice support for korean but in the options, it does not show up. For some reason the it only shows up to French (julie's voice) and I cant...


I don't know if garmin have a Korean voice. They probably have and yes it is possible to add voices to the satnav. You need to download and install WEBUPDATER to your computer. It can be downloaded from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27

When it's installed connect your satnav to your computer and run the WEBUPDATER program. It will search for software updates. Install any that it finds and when it's finished it will give you the option of downloading optional downloads. These include voices. Select the voices you want to download and they will be downloaded to your satnav.

You need to disconnect the satnav safely from your computer, like a memory stick or external harddrive. When it's disconnected start up the satnav and press TOOLS, SETTINGS, LANGUAGE & VOICE. Select the voice you want. All the downloaded voices should be available to you.

1390t stopped saying street names and only says distance before turn


Some voices on the satnav don't support street names. It's likely that the voice which used to has become unselected or corrupted.
1. Press Tools, then Settings, then Language and you will see a setting for Voice. Press Voice and change to a different one. If there's not another voice there or the other voice file is corrupted you can download more.
2. Connect your satnav to your computer. Download and install webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 and your satnav will look for updates. When it has finished it will give you an option to download voices. Tick the ones you want and click next. When they have been downloaded to your satnav and you have disconnected your satnav from your computer select a new voice as described in paragraph 1 above.

No audio when gps says re-calcuting but beeps are heard also media player has sound.


Does audio give directions? If not it's likely that the Voice file is corrupted or disabled. To see if it's disabled press Tools, then press Settings Then press Language and see if there's a Voice displayed. If not press Voice and select one from the list. If there's no voice there connect your satnav to the computer. Download the latest version of Webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 and when it's installed click next. You'll get an option to download various voices. Tick the ones you want and click next to download them. When they've downloaded you'll be able to go back to tools, settings, language and select the voice of your choice.

On the other hand if it's only updating that the voice doesn't say select a different voice. Some of the voices don't say it while others do.
