I've often been asked whether it's possible to use your own recording as a GPS voice, and I had to answer yes, but it was a highly technical process. That just changed with Garmin's introduction of its free Voice Studio. Simply download and install the software (PC only, so far), then record onto your computer a set of required phrases, such as "proceed to highlighted route," and "traffic ahead." Follow simple instructions to install the voice set into your compatible Garmin GPS. You may use your own versions of all the common GPS commands. This is a terrific addition to GPS voice options.
