    You have to navigate to get to the good.

    hi catymag, I'm glad you answered
    I did what is in tutorial, launched garmincure3, generated cure firmware file successfully installed. Then formatted with FAT32 RMPrepUSB, installed and launched the original firmeware nuvi, all right so far, then installed maps with mapsource and tried unsuccessfully to navigate. There is NO voice guidance, although it has when doing simulation route, NO recalculate a new route when I turn the wrong direction. Voices are properly installed and selected. please help

    Do you Have good satellite fix.
    Perform hard reset and Leave outside for 20 minutes to get good fix.
    Make sure you only have 1 map of your region installed on Nuvi.
    Do you have Basemap installed? Gmapbmap.img

    dasilvarsa hi, I'm glad you answered
    I have excellent satellite reception, the top of the building, at least for 30 seconds.
    I put only the base map Gmapbmap.img and tried to navigate around the block
    but the result is the same, there is no route recalculation and no voice assistant. Maybe it needed some more files. please help

    Add your garmindevice.xml on PC for backup
    Open garmindevice.xml on your nuvi with notepad and hit ctr+F and write voice and hit enter ( for next search you pres button F3)
    Search for something like this: PartNumber>006-D0397-00</PartNumber><Version><Major>2</Major><Minor>20</Minor></Version><Path>Garmin/Voice</Path><FileName>English_American_.vpm

    Now edit <Version><Major>2</Major><Minor>20</Minor> to <Version><Major>1</Major><Minor>20</Minor>

    Do this for all voice you like to download and then save

    Run webupdater and you can now download voice for your nuvi

    hi, popotnik putnik I'm glad you answered
    I have now done what you said, edited file in notepad and copied back to the garmin folder, but the result is the same, when I'm driving there is no voice assistant, and no Recalculation of the route, only show the actual position on map. Voice is present only in route simulation not in navigation. I think if we solve problems of route recalculation, the voice guidance will appear, it might be a problem in some of the hidden files of nuvi operating system, just a guess. The reason I formatted nuvi 660, I put a big maps over 2gb, wanted to do a clean install and format (bad idea) without backup.help please

    I mean additional files not firmware, it asks if you want to check for other files after telling you your firmware is up to date
