    There are in fact 3 types of Garmin TTS voices albeit all with the file extension .vpm. I'm quite sure Samantha only came as TTS3 which your modern device should be using. If the wrong one is loaded then either you'll see the incompatible audio message or the device may even freeze on the start screen and be soft-bricked. I'm unsure why you aren't being offered other EN voices by GE or WU. Perhaps you should post the file "English_American_Samantha.vpm" to help identify which file-type it is. Voice files aren't locked by the way.

    As I remember your device support TTS3 voices.
    You can see a list all of it with this searching string in a browser:

    Unfortunately Garmin removes the download links from HTML source now.

    Only for English voice you can use my garmindevice.xml file:

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Unpack it on a flash drive or a SD card into Garmin folder (create this folder). Run WebUpdater and download that you want only TTS3 or all with additional voices without TTS. After that copy the downloaded files into your device.

    Thanks for the replies. I want to install the voice listed on the page linked below. I'm not sure how to do this, because when I connect my GPS and when I run Garmin Express this voice is not being offered, and there is no file to download on the Garmin page.

    I guess you didn't understand Giomen's helpful post above. When he said "Unfortunately Garmin removes the download links from HTML source now" he clearly was saying there are no longer download links on the information pages which only give the change history and a direction to use GarminExpress to install the file. You can also use WebUpdater which is best in this case if using his supplied XML file to get the other EN voices. If you're still unsure what to do, here's the VPM for Lee in TTS3 anyway. It's in compressed RAR form: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]; [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Extract part 1 and part 2 will automatically follow.

    I gave you all that you can do to the English voices is being offered. All you need the SD card or FlashDrive and WebUpdater program. You can use even Nuvi but it is not safe for beginners.

    I'm noit clear on this:

    I should create a folder named Garmin on an SD card, put the garmindevice.xml file on the SD card and extract it. Then I run Webupdater with the Nuvi connected to the computer and the SD card with the extracted voice files in the Nuvi. Then I copy the desired voice files into the voive folder on the Nuvi? Is that it?

    I extracted the rar files and got the vpm. I put the vpm in the Voice folder on the Nuvi and the voice works. Thanks!
