    Does your satnav support TTS voices, i.e. does it speak street names 'turn left on Smith Street' or just say 'turn left' ?

    EDIT: If it does do TTS, try these: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Extract with 7-Zip and you will have Paulina & Javier vpn files.

    This is a non-TTS voice from a Nuvi 40. Not sure if it's compatible with your satnav. If anything weird happens after you add it to the Voice folder delete it off the sd and it should be OK.

    These are the map files that are in the garmin folder:
    gmapbmap.img, gmapprom.img, Gmapprom.unl & gmaptz.img

    Should I remove all of them and see what happens?
    You can leave only gmapbmap.img & gmaptz.img on not-original SD. If password was required anyway:

    Hello Neil. Thank you for the files. I copied all of them in the voices menu and they were all identified by the unit, even the TTS ones had a label of them being able to say street names. The system would allow me to select each of them, but I tried them all and even though I didn't get any error messages, none of them "spoke".
    Is there any other type of voice files that I could try? Would the ones created in the voice studio work?

    Thanks again, I really appreciate your help

    Hello Giomen. I tried that, and all the other suggestions in this post + some other experiments I did removing different files and placing the sw.unl file in root & garmin folders, but nothing worked. I was unable to have the unit work with a SD card different than the original it came with it would ask me for their password no matter what I did.
    Thanks for all your help, I'll have to stick with that one card and hope it doesn't ever get damaged.

    I am opened to test any other approach if any of you want me to, but for the moment I'm ok using the original card... Now I only need to find Mexican voices that work.

    T H A N K Y O U A L L for your help and comments. I can't stress hard enough how much I appreciate all your advice

    Can you look on your unit manual what model do you have in car?
    Or look in unit in info or software version section.
    If we know what you have in car we can help you more.

    Well, at least it appears that adding an incompatible voice file doesn't cause any problems so you can keep trying anything else out. As far as i'm aware, any voice files created in VoiceStudio will work in all Garmin Nuvis (except 3xx/6xx), Zumo 660 and all Aeras so compatibility is quite broad. I'd have some fun and record your own voice (or better still, Eva Longoria, Sofia Vergara, Selma Hayek..... if you can kidnap one of them, that is).

    I can't find any other South American or Mexican Spanish non-TTS voices anywhere, sorry. Doesn't mean there aren't any, though.

    Good question. How do you update the fw on that thing Diego? Do you have to dl new fw updates onto your oem sd?

    You cannot Fully Clone a micro SD Card in windows/dos or Unix because there is a unique number called the SID that cannot be changed.
    Someone mentioned on some internet discussion that if you have an SD card Bulk Duplicating Machine you can make an Exact Clone of an SD Card.
