Might not be possible....
Only Garmins with mp3 players can use the normal Garmin voice files. Some other models can use wav files and an older version of POILoader

See the notes on the voice download page:
Quote:
WARNING: Only Nuvi models that have a mp3 player will support these mp3 format alerts. Other devices that lack mp3 support CANNOT utilise these alerts. A work-around using an older version of POILoader and wav file alerts can be found below.
.......

Nuvi devices that do not support mp3 playback

For Nuvi devices that do not support mp3 playback there is an alternative option which you may wish to consider. This requires an Beta version of POILoader, v2.4.0 Beta available HERE. (5.15 Mb EXE Download).
Once installed you will need to convert the voice files provided above from mp3 to wav format. This can be done using a utility such as Audacity which is a free download available HERE. This method IS NOT supported by Garmin.

What are the names of the files you have downloaded?

Are you using POILoader to transfer the files?

Are you doing this at the same time as the Speed Camera Database files?

Do you use the ASH10 Camera manager? If not then you should not use that version of the voice files?

As Darren says you should use the set that matches the Speed Camera Database you are using.

At the end of the day you should have matching triplicates of files with a CSV, a BMP and an MP3 with exactly the same names.

If you are using Ash10s Camera Manager use the set you downloaded. If not use one of the other 2 sets that are called " UK (MPH) Voice Set".

If it still doesn't work can you list a few of the CSV, BMP and MP3 files you have on your PC, in your POI upload folder.

Can you also answer
