Change voice on Nav System???

Has anyone changed the voice on their 430n Nav System.

I know its possible on portable Garmin systems, and I've done it on my wife's Kenwood 8120.

But has it been done on the 430n?

....and by that I mean download and install a voice that is not currently installed on the unit as an option.

For example: From the Garmin.com "my garage" optional voices.

I don't recall seeing anything about that in my hard copy manual. Doesn't mean you can't do it...

But I don't think you can do it.

Could be wrong.

I haven't found a way yet.
That female voice kept me from naming mine Shrek.

Dream on. Not in a 730N at least. Good luck with the 430N.
My 5 year old Garmin has it. I changed it to the male voice. When my wife ask me why I told her I already had too many women telling me what to do.
Besides with my firearms induced deafness the guy was easier to hear.

My portable Garmin 760 Nuvi had the Australian Gal (Droooool)

My wife constantly complained that she couldnt understand the Garmin with the Aussie voice (Jealous much?)

So I downloaded and installed the "Dr. Nightmare" bundle. spooky and funny

I figured the MUCH more expensive 430n should be able to do the same. After all...the 430 DOES use Garmin software. The 730 supposedly does not use Garmin....so I hear.
