Can .wav sound files be included with .mp3 files in Sounds?
Your unit must be capable of playing mp3 files if you want to use them as custom audio alerts. The 255W does not play mp3's. If you have a unit that does play mp3's, you can use a wav file as the alert for one POI file and an mp3 for another, if that is what you are asking.
This site provides many sound files. I have not looked at them all, but they appear to all be Mp3 files.
I was asking in this site could also provide the corresponding Wav file adjacent to the existing Mp3.
I have not used any sound files so I may be missing something. Wouldn't this be simplier for Nuvi 2xx and 2x5 users?
I believe you are correct about the sound files being mp3 files, this stems from the fact that until somebody discovered you could use wav files with sox.exe everyone thought you were out of luck if you gps did not play mp3 files. It may be time to start including them on the site... Hmmmm Miss Poi? I'm sure we can get some volunteers to convert them...
BobDee has already started to convert all of our MP3 files over to wav and I will eventually have them posted.
JM and I are about to announce another new tool to the site that we have been playing with.
Great News - I think this will greatly simplify using sounds for Nuvi 2xx and 2x5 users.
I have converted 300 so far and sent them to Miss POI the rest should be done in the next day or so. This will give our community a set of files in both MP3 and WAV.
That should get you a COW award.... Moooo...
Thanks sweetie, I really appreciate that. I am getting on my plane this morning and will be thinking about all the work that you have piled up for me to complete when I get back.
Get ready to chew some cud next week.
now I will have something to think about while trying to get the baby back to sleep...
... we will start seeing the WAV files on the site? I am needing them for redlight and low clearance.
I am working on those this week;) I hope to have them all up by Sunday.
