Bro owyong, no need to wondering. Just change your set's language to Malay. Drive around and listen to her SOSweet voices. :thumbsup:

I was recently informed that a Nuvi 7xx targeted for this region has Bahasa Malaysia voice. ecms have more details on this. I am not sure which exact model it was.

Hi all,

Inside only got English TTS.

I would think if there is a Malay version with voice & speech added and the unit comes with a TTS feature, like mine was downloaded with Dutch speaking voices, the local intonation and vocabulary expression will be omitted clearly too.

I find the English guy and the Aussie lady speaks passable local names. We leave the TTS on so the kids & I can have a laugh on our drives :mrgreen: (they learn the road names as they laugh...so it's educational as well)
