Garmin Nuvi Voices Free Downloads – Custom Garmin Nuvi Voices
I have had friends and family calling as well as sending emails asking me about a couple of issues related to Garmin voices. Primarily, many of them have purchased a Garmin Nuvi and are interested in knowing how to get Garmin Nuvi voices free downloads. You may also be interested in free Garmin voices or perhaps you prefer custom Nuvi voices or the Premium. What ever your Nuvi’s make you will find something here.
Garmin Premium Voices
Many people are looking for premium GPS voices. They want to enjoy what they hear while driving. Surfing the internet you may come across voices such as Snoop Dogg, Homer, Stewie, Mr. T, GOzzy Osbourne and many more which may be premium Garmin voices. However, there are only two premium voices endorsed and promoted by Garmin. These are the SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer.
SpongeBob SquarePants is a voice most people love. If you are driving alone, you will really enjoy the company of a friend who has his eye on the road and can still make you laugh. The SpongeBob bundle includes two fun SpongeBob vehicle icons to liven up your Garmin map screen.
Dora the Explorer
The Dora the Explorer Premium Voice is the sweet voice of a true explorer. It is laced with a great deal of excitement. I personally prefer this Nickelodeon’s Dora voice to the SpongeBob SquarePants Premium voice.
Premium Voices Price
As you will expect, the SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer Voices are not free Garmin voices. They come at a price. My research indicates that as at May, 2011, they both sell for $5.99 on the Garmin website.
Custom Garmin Voices
Garmin knows that some people abhor the idea of being instructed what to do; they don’t like someone playing the lord over them. If that is you, and you have the time and patience, Garmin is not troubled with you being your own boss.
The Garmin Nuvi voices page provides you with tool to create your own voice prompt so no one has to tell you what to do. If you are comfortable with a friend or family member telling you what to do when driving, you can have them do it for you. You could as well get President Obama to do same for you.
Garmin Nuvi Voices Free Downloads
If you are interested in Free Garmin voices, this is where you want to pay more attention. There are several free Garmin voices you can download directly at the Tools page. Notable among these Garmin Nuvi voices free downloads are Yeti, Elfred the Elf, Squirrely the Squirrel and Dr. Nightmare!
It is a basic truth that Yetis do a great deal of driving. More often than not their trips which are cross-country in nature see them regularly charting unfamiliar terrains for which reason, a GPS device is a must have.
With the Yeti Voices, Yetis can enjoy their drives even more. However, if you are not a Yeti, I will not recommend that you get this voice. I tried it and could hardly hear the voice prompts correctly; you don’t want to be second-guessing which direction to take. Why did you get the GPS device in the first place?
Elfred the Elf
This free Garmin voice is composed to put you in the holiday mood. You will enjoy Elfred’s great knowledge and sense of humor on your holiday vacation.
Squirrely the Squirrel
Squirrely the Squirrel is a fun and delightful voice prompt. However, just like the Yeti, you may find it difficult deciphering all the voice prompts.
You should know how this voice sounds from its name even before you ever hear it. It can be real fun listening to this haunted voice pack. However, it is for the brave. I don’t know how brave your family is but I don’t recommend this voice in the car that takes the children to school.
These voices are compatible with most Garmin Nuvi makes. You can download voices and upload to the 200 Series up through the high-end 3700 Series. Even the much older Nuvi 5000 can also be loaded with any of the GPS voices you choose.
Some exceptions exist though. The voices are not compatible with the Garmin Nuvi GPS devices listed below:
Nuvi 300 series
Nuvi 600 series

I installed Internet Explorer 8 Beta and I can no longer use IE in any version?
Please tell me how I can make it work, I hate it, but all my links are saved in the the favorites (including all my recent project resources) and until it works I can’t get to them. I tried reverting back to a previous system checkpoint, tried reinstalling ie7, i know i can’t uninstall the program, what can i possibly do?
You should have read the fine print. IE8 completely overwrites existing copies of IE7 and IE6. Microsoft did release a virtual version if you wanted to test it out which you could have run using VirtualPC. Just be more careful in the future!
Your best solution is to backup your bookmarks (favorites) and import them into another browser such as Opera or Firefox. Then just wait ’till Microsoft patches whatever the problem is with the beta version of IE8. I’m sure there is a solution but it is really hard to figure that kinda thing out without looking at your machine.

Monopoly is a method by which a single organization or individual exercises complete control over a particular product or service and using this control to determine significantly the terms on which other individuals shall have access to it.
Lets take the example of software giant Microsoft. They control 90-95% of the PC market world wide. I think everyone will agree that they are the pioneers in the operating systems arena. They were instrumental in bring about the PC revolution. They literally brought the computer to every home. Microsoft is one of the most glorified companies of the century. They hire the world’s best talent and pay incredibly huge sums of money to their people and produce high quality products. But the company’s negatives and their unethical business practices were swept under the carpet, due to their enormous clout in their domain. Microsoft has absolutely no competitors in the operating systems domain. They have penetrated their product so much that consumers cannot think beyond a windows or Microsoft office.
Microsoft is definitely a success story; I have no doubts about that. But, along the way some of their business decisions were in the direction of monopolization. One such move was to tag their Internet Explorer along with the Windows OS kit. Microsoft was caught off guard during the internet age. They were pioneers in bringing computers to every desk. But, during the internet revolution it was a little startup called Netscape which came up with Netscape Navigator, where one can access real time content on the internet. Netscape was built using a java runtime environment. Microsoft was slow to wake up, but they came up with Internet Explorer. But, by then Netscape had established itself and controlled a good percentage of the market. Then, Microsoft tagged along Internet Explorer along with their Windows OS kit. Since, they had almost 100% market share in the operating systems domain, just added Internet Explorer to their windows OS kit. So, if you use a windows OS you will definitely use internet explorer. The US government alleged that this was done to eliminate the competitive threat posed by Netscape and SUN’s Java programming language. Microsoft argues that this action is a natural extension of the Windows environment and that it should not be faulted for providing a free program to all users. Microsoft argues that this reflects the dynamic and competitive nature of the software market. Critics of Microsoft argue that this was required only because of the reduction in Netscape’s market share as a result of Microsoft’s unfair trade practices. In the end the consumer is left with no choice but to use Internet Explorer.
Contrary to popular belief, Microsoft has not gained its enormous popularity through monopolistic and illegal measures, but instead through superior products. I feel that people do have brains, and therefore have the capacity to make rational decisions based on what they think is right. If people didn’t like the Microsoft operating systems, there are about a hundred other choices for operating systems, all of which have the ability to replace Microsoft if the people wanted them. But they don’t, the people for the most part want Microsoft operating systems. For this reason, Microsoft simply created products that the people liked, and the people bought them.
On the other side of the issue, are the people who believe that Microsoft is indeed operating in a monopolistic manner and therefore, the government should intervene and split Microsoft up. Those who are under the assumption that Microsoft should indeed be split up, believe that they should either be split into two separate companies: one dealing with operating systems and the other dealing strictly with applications. The other group believes that the government should further split Microsoft up into three divisions: one company to create operating systems, one company to create office applications, and one company to create applications for the home. All of these people agree that Microsoft should be split up, anyway possible
I have presented both sides of the coin here. Microsoft definitely was instrumental in the PC revolution. They are extremely innovative company that makes high quality software. But along the way they have bent a few rules and adopted a few smart but unethical policies to propagate their product. But I will say that Microsoft’s popularity is because they make high quality products and the consumers need not look else where. The competitors really cannot do much, to penetrate the Microsoft’s market simply due to the superior quality of their Operating systems.

How do you update IE version 5.00.3700.1000 SP4 (IE 5.01) to a later version of IE? IE 5.5 or IE 6?
I’ve tied to update my Internet Explorer from 5.01 to a lter version, either 5.5 or 6. I don’t believe the 5.5 version is available on the Microsoft website. I can’tuse the Windows Update feature because it’s only available with IE 5.5 and above.
This is the exact link for IE6
