Garmin Nuvi Voices Free Downloads – Custom Garmin Nuvi Voices
Posted On July 22, 2023
Friends and family have called and emailed me asking about a couple of issues with Garmin voices. Mainly many of them have bought a Garmin Nuvi and are interested in how to get free Garmin Nuvi voice downloads. You may also be interested in Garmin’s free voices or you may prefer Nuvi’s custom voices or Premium. Whatever the make of your Nuvi, you’ll find something here.
Garmin Premium Voices
Lots of people are looking for premium GPS voices. They want to enjoy what they hear while driving. Browsing the internet, you can find voices like Snoop Dogg, Homer, Stewie, Mr. T, GOzzy Osbourne and many more, which can be Garmin premium voices. However, there are only two premium voices endorsed and promoted by Garmin. These are SpongeBob and Dora the Explorer.
Sponge Bob Square Pants
SpongeBob SquarePants is a voice that most people love. If he drives alone, he’ll really enjoy the company of a friend who keeps an eye on the road and can still make him laugh. The SpongeBob Pack includes two fun SpongeBob vehicle icons to animate the Garmin map screen.
Dora the explorer
Dora the Explorer Premium Voice is the sweet voice of a true explorer. She is laced with a great deal of emotion. Personally, I prefer this voice of Dora from Nickelodeon to the Premium voice of SpongeBob SquarePants.
Premium Voices Price
Unsurprisingly, SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer Voices are not free voices from Garmin. They come at a price. My research indicates that, as of May 2011, they both sell for $5.99 on the Garmin website.
Garmin Custom Voices
Garmin knows that some people abhor the idea of being instructed on what to do; they don’t like someone playing lord over them. If that’s you, and you have the time and patience, Garmin doesn’t care that you’re his own boss.
The Garmin Nuvi Voices page gives you a tool to create your own voice message so no one has to tell you what to do. If you feel comfortable with a friend or family member telling you what to do while driving, you can ask them to do it for you. You could also have President Obama do the same for you.
Garmin Nuvi Voices Free Downloads
If you’re interested in Garmin’s free voices, this is where you should pay more attention. There are several free Garmin voices that you can download directly from the Tools page. Among these free Garmin Nuvi voice downloads are Yeti, Elfred the Elf, Squirrely the Squirrel, and Dr. Nightmare.
It’s a basic truth that the Yetis handles a lot. Most of the time his travels, who are cross-country in nature, see them regularly mapping unfamiliar terrain, so a GPS device is a must.
With Yeti Voices, Yetis can enjoy their travels even more. However, if you’re not a Yeti, I won’t recommend getting this voice. I tried it out and could barely hear the voice prompts properly; you don’t want to be wondering which direction to take. Why did you buy the GPS device in the first place?

This free voice from Garmin is composed to put you in the vacation mood. He will enjoy Elfred’s great knowledge and sense of humor on his vacation.

Squirrelly the Squirrel is a fun and charming voice message. However, like the Yeti, you may find it difficult to decipher all the voice prompts.
You should know what this voice sounds like by name before you even hear it. It can be a lot of fun to listen to this enchanted voice pack. Of course, 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 kids to school.
These voices are compatible with most brands of Garmin Nuvi. You can download voices and upload them to the 200 Series up to the high-end 3700 Series. Even the much older Nuvi 5000 can also be loaded with any of your choice of GPS voices.
Although there are some exceptions. Voices are not supported on the Garmin Nuvi GPS devices listed below:
- Nuvi 300 Series
- Nuvi 600 Series
- juice series
