eBooks and my nuvi 760


I like to listen to books and I download them from the Los Angeles Public Library for free, in the past, I listened to them on my mp3 player.
When I got the 760 I was aware that it would play books so I was puzzled when the books I downloaded would not load to the nuvi until I noticed they are protected WMA files. They can not be changed to mp3 files.

Does anyone know of a way around this? There are software solutions for pdas etc but I haven't found one for a nuvi...

SoundTaxi Professional works great:

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.

Thanks for the information

Got it, using it, happy camper... grin

I searched for something like this with no success..

Thanks again

Do I understand this right? A NUVI 2595 will play MP3 audio books? Can you move the " Audible " file to the sd card and have success? I know this is an old thread but I have access to a lot of e-book MP3's.

This thread is about a nuvi 760.

Older models supported MP3.

Newer models do not have an MP3 player.

That makes sense given all

That makes sense given all the other devices we carry now that can. I never did use my GPS as an eBook player when it had the functionallity
