    Yep, mine too. Dora starts cussing - "fine, go 500 ft and make a da** U-Turn, then do as I TOLD you to do and get on I-95 and drive South to Florida you simpleton".
    I wish I could use Buford T. Justice from Smokey and the Bandit.

    Or a Nuvi that quits working when you don't follow her directions.

    Default Nuvi Voices Question

    I have a question about Nuvi voices. So far, I have tried 2 voices. One is Dr Nightmare. He used to scare me out of the drivers seat when I was driving along long country roads and he would come out with a loud statement about the full moon! Then, on the way to my Uncles military service in Augusta, he commented that my car was nice, but it was no hearse, and did I want to go to the BONEYARD??? Looking back, it is humorous, but not so back then!
    So, I switched to the squirrel and he chats non stop but says the same things over and over! I would never hurt an animal, but get the urge to buy a pellet gun when I hear his voice!
    So my question is, what do you experienced Nuvi owners find to be the least intrusive Nuvi voice? I would appreciate any input.

    There are so many you will have to do a search for Nuvi voices and find one the suites you. I kind of like one of the Stewie voices. I also have a Cluso one that people like.

    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    We just use the Samantha that came on the unit. Most all the others are just annoying. And I am used to not fully paying full attention to what women say, so when she keeps telling me I've messed up I'm familiar with it.

    We have Judge Judy. She yells "Objection" if I miss a turn and found me in contempt when I tried to climb Kennabago Mountain with Di's Highlander!
    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    I have gotten used to Samantha telling me where to go. There are only two women that have that opportunity and she is quite good at it.
    I'd really rather not cache, but I am helpless in the grip of my compulsion!

    There was a nav unit years ago that had John Cleese from Monty Python. That was a great voice!
