Surfer dude voice problem

I have 701 updated to FP1 and I can't seem to select surfer dude for my voice navigation. I downloaded it via nokia suite and it is registered as "on the phone" but when I try to select it on the phone it is just not listed. I checked using file manager that it is indeed on the phone in "cities" directory. I had this problem earlier when it was not on FP1 and I solved it by reinstalling the voice package.. Now that method is not working.

The Surfer Dude Voice is not listed as English Surfer Dude anymore. I downloaded mine yesterday from Nokia Suite and it was listed as Surfer Dude English and you will find it in the S list not the E list. My maps is maps v3.08

 

I hope it solves your problem.

Same problems with MAPS 3.09....... "Surfer Dude English" can be downloaded via Nokia Suite (files are added to mobile device) but it is not possible to select "Surfer Dude" in settings/voice guidance/ as "Surfer Dude" is not listed.

 

I really hope there is a simple solution ...... Surfer Dude has guided me over thousand's of miles around Europe and it just would not be the same without him. Come on Nokia Sort it out DUDES !

What phone are you using? I've tried that for my Nokia C7 (and downloaded "surfer dude" via Nokia Suite) but still don't see "surfer dude" in the list of selectable voice guidance options on the C7 phone.

 

Any suggestions appreciated to get back my "surfer dude"... Thanks!

Had a look. It was set to online. Switched it offline and then back to online, Surfer Dude still not appearing as a voice guidance option for either walking or driving... Is it just my C7 phone??? :-(

Re: Surfer dude voice problem

Just to clarify a few things which will hopefully help someone help me...
- Nokia Suite (on the PC) said there were no updates when I checked.
- I tried Nokia Store (on the phone) and it updated and then indicated there was an update for Nokia Maps 2.0.
- I deleted all maps and voice guidance files from the phone.
- I installed the latest Nokia Maps update hoping that it might solve the problem.
- Sadly, it didn't I still did not see it as an available voice guidance file for either walks or driving.
- I then (via PC Suite) installed the maps and two English (Brit male & female without street names) voice guidance files and Surfer Dude.
- In Nokia Suite, they ALL show as being "on the phone".
- BUT, Surfer Dude still isn't actually to be found as an option on the phone.

Hope this helps someone help me... Thanks!
