SRF Reader / Viewer

 

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone know what program I can use to view the vehicle srf files with? I've tried Irfanview and Photofiltre and neither of them will recognize the srf format.

Thanks!!

Clint

Clint,
I created a jpg file of all the vehicle icons (128) with their file names so I can find which vehicle I want quicker. If you want it, send me a PM and I will send it to you. It basically resembles my avatar with the file name under it!

I don't see a way to PM you?

I don't see a way to PM you? If you want, you can just send the file to my gmail account: clint47@gmail.com

I have several vehicles that you might be interested in, and I can zip them up and send your way if I could figure out HOW! (LOL)

Hi Clint,

Check your inbox.

FYI..For next time. If you click on the persons name it opens a page and there is a contact tab.

Let me know if that jpg file helps you.

I don't have an inbox (on

I don't have an inbox (on this website) nor do I see a contact tab on your profile. Could this be a feature that only paid members get? Or could it be a FF vs IE problem? I'm running FF on this end.

check your gmail inbox.

For the PM. If you click on the person name next to their avatar such as "clint45", a page opens up and there are 3 tabs right under it that say View, Track and Contact. If you click contact it will generate an email that will go to the persons email he signed up with.

Nope! I only see two tabs,

Nope! I only see two tabs, Track and View. There is NO Contact tab to be found in your profile. Oh and I got that file at my gmail account and sent you a response back.

Thanks!!

It's not a FF or IE problem because I just logged in on IE and STILL NO CONTACT tab! It must be something to do with paid members or something along those lines.

Users must ACTIVATE the Contact Tab in their profile in order for it to show up.

All I did to create those files was use the screen shot feature on the nuvi for each of the vehicles when they were loaded then just cut and pasted them into a a single file.

How?

How do I ACTIVATE it?? I don't see any way to do this?! I have the box that say "Use contact form" checked but it's not working and I don't see a contact tab on others profiles either. Maybe nobody likes me?! (LOL)

No, no. Each user must activate their own contact tab. If the user whom you were trying to contact doesn't have theirs checked, they will need to check it before their contact tab shows up on their Account Page.

Users will need to click the Edit tab on their Account Page, check the check box next to "Personal contact form" on their Account Page and then save the changes so that the Contact Tab shows up to other users.

If you look at my Account Page, you'll see my Contact tab.

I can see clint45's contact tab

If I click on clint45's name, I can see his contact tab. And if I click on the tab, I can send him a message.

Note that users won't see the Contact tab on their own account pages.

If I remember correctly, the check box is not checked by default when someone creates an account. Users must enable it for their contact tab to be visible to other users.

Of course, Miss POI can contact all of us whether or not the box is checked. : )

maybe would should make a sticky note out of this tread so that others don't fall into the same Duuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhh trap that I did? Or is it just that I'm a special kind of fool this week? (LOL)

Oh and YES I've got it figured out NOW! (LOL) Now back to my other question, is there any FREE SRF file viewers around?

Check Out

http://techmods.net/nuvi/

From what I gather, you must change it to a png for viewing.

Nuvi 660 -- and not upgrading it or maps until Garmin fixes long-standing bugs/problems, and get maps to where they are much more current, AND corrected on a more timely basis when advised of mistakes.

jpg file

Clint,

How did the jpg file work out for you? The converter will show you the same thing that's on the jpg file just 72 different views of it. Unless you plan to create or modify your own vehicles. The links to all those vehicles should be in the "how to create custom vehicles" thread.

Paul

Great!

The jpg files works great Paul and thanks a bunch for sending it to me and the information on how to create it!! I have several of the vehicles but I downloaded the rest today just in case they become a collectors item down the road.(LOL)

If anyone else want that jpg file for a reference let me know and I can forward it to you.

Tell ya what, I'll just give

Tell ya what, I'll just give folks a link here to my server where they can download it from.

You can get the jpg file of the nuvi vehicles here:

If you get a new one created Paul let me know and if you send it my way I'll post that one to.

Clint, since you have the file would you mind fixing that? Scoin_xb should be Scion_xb.

Thanks

an SRF viewer would be nice

Yes, all the workarounds (creating png or jpg) are good ideas, but it definitely would be nice to have a viewer that would show the turning vehicle straight out of the srf file, just like the nuvi itself (or Garmin's site) does it.

I'm sure one of you hackers out there can possible figure out how to copy a specific drive off the nuvi and store it to your computer. What about the antenna connection Gramin has to convert your laptop into a GPS? I'm sure this must come with hardware to load onto the computer right? https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=6445

Now that you've got the info you were looking for, you may want to go back and edit the post above to eliminate your email address. There are lots of spammers out ther who look for email addresses placed in posts just like that. Just a suggestion.

I use Gmail, if they spam me, I'll just delete it and create another account. Besides, there's no way to edit the post after a certain amount of time. Thanks for the concern though!!

SRF viewer

Maybe you computer techs can figure out how the person on this link below configured his website to read SRF files! I didn't see any contact info.

http://www.ecarter.net/midwest/nuvi.htm

You're not seeing SRF files,

You're not seeing SRF files, what you are seeing are GIF files. Just right click on one of the images and then select SAVE AS and you'll see that it is indeed a GIF file being displayed HOWEVER the LINK will download the SRF file.

Yup. It's an animated gif.
Take up a heck of a lot less room on a server, and conversely the page loads faster.

Vehicles

Paul, are some of the vehicles on your file more than what is on the nuvi gps. I got all that garmin has and can view all on my 660.

Your Question

I'm not sure of your exact question but I will answer it both ways.

1.) If your question is "are all of these vehicles currently on my nuvi?" no they are not. I have all of these saved to my computer (181 MB file) and only have 6 installed on my nuvi.

2.) If your questions is "there are vehicles shown here that you do not have!" (These are not all "Garmin Created" files) The links to all the vehicles should be listed in this thread http://www.poi-factory.com/node/9738 (How to Make Custom Vehicles Icons)If not, I can send you one in the jpg list or tell you where to find it.

Hopefully one of those answered your question.

Paul

i accidentally messed up my garmin nuvi!

i tried to look at my icons by opening the individual files on my computer and hit adobe by accident.

i thought i changed the files, so i erased them and replaced them with a few chosen ones i liked off garmin garage.

now the icons show up i put in, but they won't move, and it shows a "?" over it...saying aquiring sattlites forever!

aargh!

if anyone knows how to restore my nuvi 265w to actually work and move again i would be so happy.

i think the original 2 cars likely had something imbedded in them for this purpose...ooops!

anyway to get that information back?

Moderated Status

Miss POI - are you able to place people in a moderated status? If so, I nominate kittykathy. She has posted the same issue in at least five or six threads. And when she was told that doing so was considered inappropriate, she basically said she can do what she wants. Well, since it's YOUR website you should decide what to do with her!

I also cannot see a contact tab for you; I was going to ask you for the file.

I now see how late I am getting into this thread, sorry.
