    Our Drive 60 is showing signs of dying, mainly the battery can almost no longer be charged to last more than 10 minutes or so. I was thinking of getting a newer unit such as the DriveSmart 66 that also has a few new features such as traffic etc. But if we can't get Karen's voice on it it's almost a showstopper; she's been all over the country with us and we'd really miss her if she's not there! ;)

    You should be able to copy 'Karen's' voice file from the Drive 60 if it is not supplied on the new unit, the voice files are found in a /Voice folder on the Drive 60 and should be copied to the same location on the new unit :-


    NOTE :- On some units voices need to be added using Garmin Express >> [select unit] >> Tools & Content >> Utilities >> Language files, There are two types of voice file, one has fixed recorded messages, eg :- "Turn Left", "Make a U Turn" etc., others use TTS (Text To Speech) technology, where the unit can say any text it can read eg. the name of the road, so you might get :- " Turn Right on Main Street", these voices are usually shown with "Say Street Names" under their title
