Hey i just bought a nuvi 765t and i transfered all the pois from this site to the unit express mode. The only problem is what i want it to do is when i get close to those places it will alert me on the top banner or somewhere on the screen with no beeping. Can someone explain how to go about doing this. Thanks, Andrew
I don't think it's possible without muting the entire unit. Or at least muting the navigation.
So, dumb question...
Why wouldn't you want the alert when you are driving? Your eyes are going to be more on the road than the GPSr!!
If you are zoomed in to 300' or closer you will see the icon for the location of the poi loaded. Don't load the mp3 file and you won't get an audio warning.
I only use audio warning for enforcement cameras, I found adding them for other places drove me crazy as I drove around town... and I'm crazy enough
i use 3d view
... The only problem is what i want it to do is when i get close to those places it will alert me on the top banner or somewhere on the screen with no beeping. ...
Very strange request, and I certainly would not advise anyone else to do this, but if you really really want the alert displayed with no audio, make a custom MP3 (or wav if your GPS does not support MP3, which also requires having the proper version of SOX.EXE) with just 1 second of silence. Rename it to exactly the same name as the POI file except it should have the .wav extension instead of the .csv or .gpx extension. Load it in manual mode with a proximity distance set. When you trip the alert the alert display will be on the screen, and the GPS will "play" a second of silence, which will sound very much like the other silence. There will be no beeping or dinging.
ok i have a 1 sec wav file silent now how do i apply it to the point of interest, also what is a good amount of distanst in manual mode for the alert?
The quiet file must be named exactly the same as the POI file with the exception of the extension. You can make multiple copies of the file and name it for all the POI you want no alert for.
wav or mp3 for nuvi 765t
Have you tried:
Tools ► Settings ► Proximity Points ► Change ► ON/OFF
Probably a hack, but create a mp3 file that has no sound in it (but still a legal file) and name it the same as the CSV file name for the POI's you loaded. It will then play that (blank) mp3, thus giving no beep. At least in theory
I just uploaded 3 files of Silence in both MP3 and WAV formats, use the to replace a Beep,gong,bell or whatever default warning sound your GPS has.
Not sure why you would need the MP3, however they
are also supplied if you want them. Unless you use them as a quite Tour Guide.
These files should be available soon.
