Get someone to do Voiceovers, and use the WAV to replace default voice prompts in Garmin's VPM. You may use utilities like Voice Editor for Garmin Nuvi or Voice Utility by Ash10. However, this one works with non-TTS VPM files only.

For TTS voice files, you can change the voice prompts to something else like changing phrases like "Recalculating" to something more enjoyable like "You don't follow directions well, do you?". :shock:

I'm using Microsoft Anna TTS in GMPC with no issue but I can't find any TTS VPM files. Any idea how to change the phrases in GMPC when there is no TTS VPM file? All the VPM files are in the voice folder are the usual non-TTS VPM files.

GMPC is using Windows TTS engine, unlike Garmin devices, so cannot edit, as far as I know.

Hey fellas!

Here's the Borat celebrity voice that I found on the Internet. Since I got it free, it's only proper that I share it with the rest. :mrgreen:

Enjoy! :wink:
