    Default Change Internal Garmin voice

    Has any one figured out yet how to change the internal name for a personalized Garmin voice to a unique name and display as such on the Garmin for selection? Maybe some of the fundis here would like this as a challenge and figure it out for us not so clever guys.

    I have a few voices for Garmin that my family like to use from time to time but can only upload them as American English voices. Very frustrating to go through that process every time, hookup to your PC and replacing voices.

    I have used voice editor to change the internal names to one of the other names like Bulgaria or Arabic but then the instructions in most cases go wrong. Haven't found one yet that will work properly with the American English template.

    Somebody must have figured this out by now. I have couple of voices that if I load them it gets displayed on the device as Yetti, Dr Nightmare or Spongebob so there must be away create a voice based on say the American English template and then give it a unique internal name like maybe my_voice and display as such on the unit. Or is Garmin to clever for us to figure this out?

    You need hex editor

    - open voice file with hex editor
    - search with the name (Emily)
    - You will find as picture below , that I changed Emily --> Smile ., at the poit that say "screen name"

    That's it.
