I used Home On The Range for my 1st WAV file on a Garmin 260 & now it plays instead of the "wanted" WAV files. It plays @ the correct distance setting but not the WAV file I want. The HOTR WAV file is not on the memeory card. How can I get rid of it? Thanks
--Have you prepared a new .wav file
--Placed it in the proper folder with the proper file name matching the .csv file except for the suffix == replacing the old HOTR .wav
--Reloaded your files from the folder to your nuvi using POI Loader?
I tried 3 different CSV files with their corresponding WAV files matching them. Each announced at the preset distance, but once again played only Home on the range. This was after formatting the memory card. I had saved all of my original files from the Garmin and over-wrote all current files before trying the last test. I still get Home On The Range which I had hesitantly loaded to the Garmin instead of the memory card but that should have been gotten rid of when I reloaded the original files, including the voice I use, "Jill." Where could the WAV file be in the Garmin?
Have you tried uninstalling and then reinstalling the POI's?
I bought a Garmin Nuvi 260 GPS unit and I wanted to use Proximity Alerts in it. When I first bought the unit, I backed up the entire program (all folders and files) onto my computer. The Internet indicated that this could be done on my unit by using WAV files instead of MP3 files for the voice alert. I created a small CSV test file along with a WAV file that had a matching name. I used POI Loader to create the GPI file and loaded that file onto an SD card. When I inserted the SD card into the Garmin and turned it on, it asked if I wanted to load with files into the unit so they could be used it the card was removed. I did so. When I tested the files in the Garmin test mode as well as physically driving the route in GPS mode, everything worked fine. The alert showed on the screen, the alert was activated at my chosen distance and the WAV file played as it should. I was very pleased with the results.
I wanted other files (POIs) set up to do the same thing. I created numerous CSV files with the appropriately matching WAV files. I deleted the original test files from the SD card and copied the new files to the card, inserted the SD card into the Nuvi and when asked if I wanted to copy the files to the unit I declined since the files were considerably larger than the test files. I have tried testing the resulting files again in GPS Simulator mode. The alert shows on the screen, the alert occurs at the distance I had chosen, and the sound plays. However, the only sound that plays is the original WAV sound that was in the test file. Apparently this file is “in” the Nuvi somewhere and overriding the WAV files I want played for each CSV file created. I have reformatted the SD card and started from scratch with the same results. I performed a complete unit reset and the above problem still exists. I have re-installed (copying over) all the files I originally backed up thinking that the WAV file would not be in the originally saved files. The above problem still exists. Is there any way that I can stop the original WAV file from overriding the succeeding WAV files?
You stated "I wanted to copy the files to the unit I declined since the files were considerably larger than the test files.". This is possibly the problem, the original files were copied to the unit and your replacement files are only on the sd card.
Try the 'Remove all previously installed custom POI's' option in POILoader after first selecting your main unit instead of your sd card in the program.
Thanks for the suggestion. I ran POI Loader directly to the Garmin unit and removed all previously installed POIs. I then ran POI Loader and installed the new GPI file only on the SD card and STILL it will only play Home On The Range. Where in the heck is it getting Home On The Range. I'm ready to go shoot some Buffalo!!!
One more thing to try, remove your sd card from your unit and run POILoader and remove all pois. Then install your sd card and see if the Buffalo died?
If still no luck then do you still have a copy of 'sox.exe' in the correct folder?
