After using a Street Pilot C330 for a couple of years (and being very happy with it) I decided to upgrade to something with a few more features. Went with the Nuvi 265T. I love it but am hoping some of you who have more experience with the nuvi can answer a couple of questions.
1. One thing the c330 could do that the nuvi doesn't, at least I can't find a setting for it, is a setting for an "Attention Tone" before the audio directions are spoken. This may be a feature few people use, but since I'm a little hard of hearing, the alert tone helped me to pay close attention as soon as the voice started. Not a biggie if the nuvi doesn't do it, but if it does I'd be interested to know how to turn it on.
2. Before purchasing the nuvi I'm almost sure I read somewhere here about loading wav files along with poi's. (I know the 265T doesn't support mp3 files) Does the 265T support wav files or did I imagine this.
Thanks for any info you can give me.
1.I have a c340 and its has that same feature but I can not find it on the 265 either.
2.Wave files will work with the 265.I have them installed on my 265.See http://www.poi-factory.com/node/16728 for instructions and the correct sox file to install.
Thanks for the quick response. I'm going to go check it out.
If you have any problems with the wave files just ask and someone will be glad to help you out.
Although I didn't know what a .sox file was I had no problem downloading or installing it. Thanks for the good instructions. The POI Loader worked just as it should have with the wav file.
Now I need to find a better audio converter (free) The one I downloaded clips off the end of the audio.
Again, Thanks for your help!
Update: I found a better converter. Everything is working great.
Try this http://www.research.att.com/~ttsweb/tts/demo.php .Just type in what you want it to say and follow the instructions to download.No converting required.It will be a wav file.I use it for most all of my alerts with wav.
What a great site. Charlie, you are a wealth of useful information.
