    Default kenwood DNX7240BT - can't change navigation language

    Hello.
    My friend bought a car from Germany with DNX7240BT device. He asked me to update maps ang change language from german to polish. I've updated Multimedia Software to version 1.9.0 and Navigation Software to 3.51. After that I've downloaded City Navigator Europe NTU 2017.20 map and copied it to the device by usb cable. Map was loaded succesfully and I wanted to change navigation language and voice into polish. And that's the problem. The language section has about 30 different languages, but no matter which option I select, everything is still in german. I've even switched the filenames of german and polish and nothing has changed. The voice section has only 3 german voices, I've found polish voice that should be supported, but device doesn't see it.
    After that I've tried to update the files by WebUpdater but it shows error "There was an error communicating with your Garmin device.", exactly the same as in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] post.
    I've got na idea that to do next.

    If there are only German voice files in the Voice folder then it cannot use Polish. There are several types of garmin voice files, all with extension .vpm but different files are for specific devices also some are TTS and others non-TTS. Generally, most Kenwoods use the files from nuvi 34/35x0 devices but not all. Be careful because the wrong TTS file could brick it. Upload the German voice files from your Voice folder so we can compare them.

    I've uploaded them here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I checked voices with TTSVoiceEditor and it shows VPM type: Nuvi 7x0/3x0 TTS. The polish voices I've tried to use are the same type.
    I also can't change gui language to other than german even if other language files are present in folder "langs".

    There's no change. No matter which language I choose, navigation remains german.
