The only advice I can give: Contact Garmin and tell them you are upset!
Maybe they have a solution how to change the voices???
As it has to do with the flash update, I don't know if you can reset this to the old version.
If yes, "re-flash" your system to the (delivery) system. Then change the voice to female.
Afterwards you can flash the new version again (and always have the female voice).
It seems that the new flash update "freezed" the voice setting, no matter if male or female.
Both is still possible, depending on what your setting was when flashing the system ...
