    Default US Nuvi to UK Nuvi?

    Hi Guys Ive been off the scene for a while due to a long illness and a bit out of touch at the mo.
    Ive just got a US Nuvi 1300 (not MTK chipset) and was wondering what mods I need to convert it to a UK model so I can get UK voices working instead of the US ones.
    Ive got the latest Europe maps working ok using basecamp but would like to flash to UK model with a view to doing the "enable hidden features for Nuvi 1300" thread.Ive done it previously with a UK model but this seems like a different ball game to convert to UK Model.
    Im on early US 5.20 firmware at the moment

    TIA

    Run [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and update your firmware to 5.90. It will then offer you TTS voices compatible with your 1300.

    What kind of voice you download??? Or file name???
    Not all TTS voice are compatible with this old model. The size of suitable voice file for your Nuvi 1300 should be no less 16Mb, in two word for example!

    No wuccas. Same here in Oz, i have US1300 with modded splash to enable LA, SLI & JCV. All nuvis sold in AU & UK run the same fw as the US sold models. You probably should get rid of any incompatible voices that you have loaded previously as well as any others in languages you don't need if you want to free up space. I highly recommend the modded spalsh as it's very safe and easy to do: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
