    Oscar the Grouch Premium Voice and Graphics Bundle:

    Oscar
    Make your GPS a little Grouchier, but a whole lot more fun. Oscar will guide you to where you want to go, but he might not always compliment your driving.


    Invite Oscar Onboard

    Who knew having a Grouch in your car could make driving so much fun?

    Let Sesame Street's own Oscar the Grouch give you turn-by-turn directions to your destination while his Grouch Taxi points out your location on the map screen.

    Place "OscarTheGrouch.vpm" & "OscarTheGrouch.unl" in the "Voice" directory of your Garmin unit.
    Place "oscar_taxi.srf" (& if needed "oscar_taxi.unl") in the "Vehicle" directory of your Garmin unit.

    Your Linux based 855 has the same file structure as a conventional Nuvi i think. Ensure you have the oscar voice .vpm file and its .unl file in the root folder named Voice. Make sure you have 'Hide extensions for known file types' unchecked in Windows' folder options [you may otherwise have a double extension, *.unl.unl for instance]. Some other common errors:

    I only tried it in a 3590, works fine. I've been looking for a way to get these novelty voices working in GMXT & GMPC for years Roger. If you can find a way i'll do the croc trick for you!

    hi, how do you tell the difference between a text-to-speech voice and a non-text-to-speech voice.. when it comes to these novelty voices, that is...?
    Are there any text-to-speech voices on here?

    It's not voice TTS (stands Text-To-Speech)

    Differences.....the normal voice option is a set of pre-recorded messages adding basic voice functionality to the navigation.

    The TTS voice is a stand-alone voice engine, that can process any text input, for example road exits and street names.

    If your device supports TTS voices, you can install them directly from the Garmin website
    With the Web Updater,your dashboard in mygarmin or Garmin Express

    More infos about the TTS

    It didn't show up in my GPS unit nuvi 2445LM, even though I generated the unl file (few attempts). And the same thing happened to Marge Simpson voice, wallace and gromit, ernie and bert. On the other hand, the vehicles were show up without unl file.

    Other than the aforementioned unsuccessful voice installation, I managed to install Homer Simpson, Yoda, Darth Vader, Morgan Freeman, English Stuart, Spongebob and Dora.
